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!
