Hey y'all! I mentioned yesterday that the current color challenge at Just Add Ink is, like, my favoritest ever color combo from the new catalog, right? Here it is:
Having fun with the Message in a Bottle stamp set, from whence my wee mermaid came on Sunday. I couldn't decide if I wanted the octopus to be Powder Pink or Tranquil Tide, so I did both...mostly because I messed up the Marbled background the first time I stamped it. I stamped it a little too far down on the card front, so to salvage it, I cut it a bit to layer on a new card base (the card on the right). The backgrounds look different too because for the right one (the first one I stamped), I inked it up, then used a brayer to spread the ink out a bit so I wouldn't have patches. On the left card, I inked up the brayer itself and used it to apply the ink to the stamp, and that's how it came out different. Interesting! I like this Marbled background stamp for this because it looks wavy to me. OH! And check out my brand new iridescent sequins! I ordered a few more embellishments than usual this last time. You might even see RIBBON sometime soon.
So now to the psychic part. I made these two cards on Sunday night, before the Global Design Project posted their newest challenge (#100). All of their DT have posted cards and this time we get to pick any one we want to CASE. And if you looked at Brian King's card, I bet you'd think I saw it before I made my cards...
It's just such a coincidence that I have to link it up over there even though I hadn't seen this card before I made mine. I ended up with a similar layout, pink, and the Marbled background! Weird, isn't it? Well, okay, it would be spookier if Brian had used the same stamp set for his main image too, but whatevs.
Have a great day, y'all!
