... this card has been made for two challenges - the Clean & Simple - FTL158 sketch and this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge - PCCC100.
Earlier today I didn't think I was going to get a card done for the 100th challenge - I just couldn't think what to do. But that's when it's so useful to have my Stamp Catalogue and to have colour reference sheets for my inks, because suddenly it all became clear to me!
The Play Date colours are really Autumnal (Fall) - so warm and rich - and I have an ink pad that combines these colours in one "Big 'n' Juicy" pad! So I inked up my flower stamp and randomly stamped a number of impressions on a sheet of paper. I made a brown mat for the back layer and used my square nesties to cut out a green mat and small section of the flowers. On the small section I coloured the flowers using the stamping inks. I made a ribbon in the green card and punched a leaf border along the bottom edge. Finally, I added a simple sentiment - Fall Blessings. I guess I'm getting used to calling Autumn - Fall! Here's my card.
