Bloggers Challenge which is a color inspiration challenge since the colors are my favorite combination--or at least I thought they were. When I first saw the inspiration image, I saw the pillow stripes as teal, navy and sage. Now the sage looks grey. Oh well, sage goes great with teal and navy, so I'll stick to my original thoughts.
The technique used on the image panel of my card is Tim Holtz's dabber resist--a favorite of mine. The panel is sticky back canvas. The stamp is one from Judikens that I've had in my collection for years, but it has never been used. One of my resolutions this year is to try to use more stamps from my collection, especially some that haven't ever been used or that haven't been used in ages. The flowers were stamped with my white acrylic paint dabber and the background colors are from distress stains.
I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is embrace the old. (I hope that using an old stamp and a technique from the past qualifies.) At Fashionable Stamping the challenge is surprise us. I hope that the canvas die cut, the flower stamped using acrylic paint, and the color combination are surprise enough.
