Hello friends. It's blog hopping time at Papertrey Ink, and that makes for a happy Monday for me...I love seeing all the creativity everyone comes up with! Especially since I'll admit this month's inspiration photo threw me for a bit of a loop!
I don't think it was the blocks that threw me so much as it was the colors. For some reason I was only seeing the bright primary colors, and I don't as a rule stamp much with just primary colors. However, once I started looking a lot more closely, I was able to see all the different rainbow shades, and came up with this:
When I first started following Papertrey Ink, I decided to start with just a few of their ink colors in the small cubes, and I ended up loving the size of them so much that I've been adding a few to every order.
I've got a third case started, but just took a photo of the two full ones to show you how I store them...they are Tim Holtz cases (meant for the distress ink cubes), and they work perfect to store and see at a glance which color I want to use. Anyways, this was kind of my jumping off point to make today's card. I simply used a piece of acetate and stamped each cube color onto it, misted it, and then pressed my cardstock (Papertrey Ink's Linen Cardstock) onto it. After it dried I stamped one of the images from Doodlie - Do in black ink onto the smaller piece, added my sentiment and a few enamel dots along with a piece of black and white bakers twine. A little hard to see in my photos, but also colored in some of the dots with my white gel pen. Not my usual style of card, but I have to say that I like how it turned out. :0)
