Hi stampers! Ever had a week or so when you just lose your mojo? That's where I'm at now! It's so frustrating. I WANT to stamp but I just can't come up with anything, urhg!!!! I saw the Colour Q challenge earlier this week and fell in LOVE with it, lookie:
I actually took not only the color cue from the challenge but I figured I'd dust off my poor neglected owl punch since I LOVED the owl in the picture up there!
Stamps: Family reunion
Paper: Whisper white, calypso coral, early espresso, pool party, island indigo, in color DSP stack
Ink: Calypso coral, island indigo
Accessories: Owl punch, in color polka dot brads, fan letterpress plate, scallop circle and circle punch, polka dot embossing folder
It is a pretty straight forward card. I used a large panel of white since the other colors are pretty bold and I thought it needed it for better balance and contrast. I also used the fan letterpress plate for the owl's chest. I think it looks like feathers! Note that I used it with regular paper AND dye ink NOT craft ink. You can do that it just doesn't work as well or impress into the paper like craft ink and watercolor paper. I had to do it that way since we don't have craft ink in our in colors. I think he turned out cute! It did take me a while to figure out what color combo to do his eyes so my desk is covered in little bitty bits of paper, hehe! I also really went with a polka dot theme so I couldn't resist throwing an in color brad on there too! Well, that's all I got! I'm going to try to squeeze some more mojo out of somewhere for the rest of the afternoon! Happy stamping!
