Bright colors are not in my comfort zone, I wanted to use my new stamp set Patterned Bugs by Inkadinkado. I've only tried a couple of brands of clear stamp companies and I'm always a little leery of trying a new one...well I was not disappointed with these! They stamp great and clean up is a cinch! And they are such a bargain! I haven't tried these with SU ink yet, but they work beautifully with Palette Hybrid inks. I only have a few colors and they are all bright....so that is why I stepped out of my comfort zone and went bright! I've had these Palette Spots for nearly two years and I've only used them a few times! What was I thinking? They are great little ink pads! I'm really practicing control by not running over to PTI to pick up their new colors! I'm normally a pink fan, but her greens/blues are delish, and all this talk about them really isn't helping my control much! So back to the card....it doesn't need much explaining! It was simple...only one layer, just stamped the bugs randomly, then put some of my favorite ribbon on there, and decided to use my new SU hardware! (I've been hoarding this for a while!). Sometimes I can spend an hour just coloring an image....and another hour trying to figure out a layout....this card came together fast, one layer, one stamp set, no coloring, bam! A cute bright card! I did cut the card a bit smaller than the usual A2 so that the ribbon could hang off and it would still fit in an envelope.
I played around a bit with my photoshop program and I thought this looked pretty cool..so I thought I'd share. This was not accomplished by any stamping technique! It was done in photoshop by giving it a "plasticwrap" effect! So here it is just for fun! I may have to try to figure out a way to do this though with some embossing stuff or something!
Thanks for checkin' me out today! I do love gettin' hit on!
