Color Challenge Inchies
Bloggers Challenge this week is a color challenge. At first I thought that the colors would be hard to use. I don't usually think of green, purple, and brown as going together. However, once I pulled out the right stamps, the right designer paper and some Club Scrap cardstock, everything fell into place.
I started with some new stamps from Chapel Road Artstamps -- Inchy Designs and Inchy Words and stamped them on various pieces of green design paper of various shades. I used a one inch square punch to cut them out. A little vintage photo distress ink along the edges finished them. I layered the inchies on a piece of kraft cardstock which I had embossed with the dots and then highlighted with vintage photo distress ink. I then adhered the brown layer to a piece of green Designer Paper with purple flowers (also used for some of the inchies) and then layered everything to a purple base card. The inchy card is a variation of the By the Inch technique from the Oct/Nov 2010 TJ newsletter.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else has created using these colors. Happy Friday.
