Boy, I sure was excited that I had recently added those amazing MFT Stay Tuned stamps and Television dies to my stash to make a birthday card for my nephew. It seems that there is a sentiment in this stamp set that works perfectly for the current Shopping Our Stash rainbow challenge.
Again, my thanks to Kelly Griglione who first gave me the idea to make a little chest/stand in this post at Notable Nest. Genius!
I went with this Fancy Pants paper collection because the colors are a wonderful collection of neutrals -- perfect for the "COLOR" part of the sentiment to pop. (Just wish the sentiment photographed as well as it looks in person!)
To ink up the sentiment, I used small sticky notes to mask off the words that would be inked in black. Next, I used sticky notes to mask and uncover the letters in "COLOR" -- one letter at a time. Then, I removed the remaining post-its to ink up the remaining words in black -- being careful to avoid getting black on the colored letters.
Finally, I chose the grid-patterned ivory paper for the card background. I embossed it to give it more of a wallpaper kind of feel.
In addition to the SOS challenge, I'm going to link this up for the current Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes and Work It Wednesday blog challenges. :)
Really looking forward to more basketball this weekend. The regional final games are usually terrific!
A new Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge goes live on Saturday, and a new Words 2 Scrap By Challenge goes live next Wednesday. Hope to see you at both of these.
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
