I got some new stamps today, so I thought I would sit down with the ColourQ challenge and ink them up. ETA: This card was crowned ColourQ Courtier!
Ok, this set isn't new, but it is new to me. I have been wanting it forever, and I can't wait to make some winter cards with it.
I was following a Michelle Zindorf tutorial, and I had some issues, but I forged ahead.
The stamped-off tree images look like poop, and the embossed leaves at the bottom didn't resist sponging very well. Hubby didn't like it at all.
So here is the improved card, I hope. TIP: If you want to take a layer off your card, try sliding dental floss under the layer. It is a staple in my craft room!
I brayered at an angle with More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie. I also brayered the bottom with Old Olive. And then I stamped. At least it came out cleaner.
This card also satisfies a couple Virtual Stamp Night challenges from last weekend over at SplitCoastStampers, things you see in the sky (trees) and using silver and stitching. I thought this card would also fit in well for the challenge over at Stampin' Celebration.
The layout of the background is called Color Blocking. Here's a closer look at the stitching.
Do you like the second card better?
