Stampin Up, Pals Paper Arts challenge #309, Just a Note

Welcome to my blog and the latest PPA challenge. This week our featured artist is Katy McGloin. Such pretty colors she has picked.   I have not used this new incolor much yet, it sure turned out pretty.  Here is Katy's colors for this week.

As you can probably tell I embossed my flourish, but then instead of sponging I did something different. It's a subtle difference but I like it better.   I used a round (mop) brush, a big one, brushed it lightly over my ink pad and then on my paper. You do that repeatedly until you have the color you want.

Then I used the grungy dots, I started with my Whisper white ink pad hoping I would get white over my color.  But that didn't happen.   I do love what happened instead, the dots with white turned to sugarplum, but a bit darker.  I also added just a few Island Indigo dots.

I am loving the Tags and labels set, it did a great job here for my sentiment. Then I cut the border in the flourish set and added my ribbon on top for a subtle effect.

Thanks for checking out my project for this week!

Very pretty flourish card. So glad I read the details... a mop brush, huh... will have to try this out. Love the grungy dots too! Thanks for sharing, Lynn!

Love the brush effect here, Lynn, and think the way you've used the challenge colors is so soft and soothing--yet very happy-looking. Great card!
