Stamping with new stamps is like showcasing a new outfit, you love to show it off! My WPlus9 order came this week, and I couldn't wait to start playing with one of the sets, Folk Art Florals. The best part of getting my order was that I had time to play along in WPlus9's Mood Board Monday challenge. For today's challenge, I pulled a few colors from the board, and created contrast by using intense hues of the peaches and turquoise to make the elements of my card pop.
I love to layer different elements to give some dimension and texture to the design of my cards. Don't be afraid to try it yourself. I mixed stamps, washi tape and added a cabochon flower and sequins, all in the coordinating colors of the mood board.
Since, my the melon color that I wanted to use for this card hasn't arrived yet, I stamped the pink flowers with Angel Pink and Lemon Tart, I inked them with one color first, and then rolled the tips of the stamp on another ink pad. To prevent crossing contamination of ink colors, make sure that you ink the lightest color first.
I had so much playing along, even though I find color challenges the hardest for me. It's hard for me to stay within the color board!
