Howdy, folks! Today's card marks the maiden voyage for one of my new stamp sets, Sweet as a Peach:
One of my friends (and frequent opponent on Words with Friends) lives in Georgia so I'll have to send this card to her. Confession: I don't actually like peaches. I don't even like peach tea (and you know I love all kinds of tea). But I just could not resist the Sweet as a Peach stamp set...partially because of the coordinating paper which is gorgeous and will be making appearances on my scrapbook pages for sure.
Anyway, this particular card was inspired by the color combination from As You See It:
You know I love me some autumnal colors! But I thought they would be just perfect for a peachy card, too. I inked up the large peach stamp with Crushed Curry, then tapped a sponge on top to get rid of a bit of excess ink (seems like I have to do this pretty frequently with photopolymer stamp sets), and then I used a sponge dauber to add some Calypso Coral ink before I stamped it. That gave me a two-toned effect on the peach, and then I lightly sponged some Crushed Curry ink so my peach has a bit of a warm haze around it.
And that's all she wrote today. Hope your day is peachy keen, jellybeans!
