Mornin' y'all! How are you today?
I have enjoyed playing with the Art Gallery stamp set lately. It was the first stamp set I thought when I saw the Just Add Ink color challenge:
I love it when Shaded Spruce shows up in color challenges :) For the flower, I used a sponge to apply ink to the stamp for the first layer so it would stamp lighter, and then for the darker layer I inked it up with the ink pad normal-normal. Easy way to get multiple strengths with one ink pad! It doesn't work with the super pale colors though, the bottom layer just wouldn't show up in that case. I paired the color challenge with the sketch from As You See It:
The strip across the bottom reminds me of the last card I made with this stamp set, but as Cogsworth would say, if it's not Baroque, don't fix it! I had die cut the rectangle for a different card and then ended up not using it, so it was already sitting on my craft table and seemed perfect for this sketch.
Have a great day, peeps!
