Blogger’s Challenge 33 – Color Combo

This week our Blogger’s Challenge is a color combo consisting of Old Olive, Pumpkin, Rose Red, and Teal-definitely not something I would have come up with, therefore making the challenge that much more fun, and, well, challenging!

Technique Instructions:102_0320_3

1.  To give some of the paper a distressed look, I inked the edges with Noir Black ink. 

2.  Rose Red ink was used to ink the edges of the Pumpkin Pie card stock.

3.  To create the "window," I backed the printed paper with a scrap of the same paper because it wasn’t double-sided (white sides together).  I cut an "X" through both layers (I made the cuts uneven on purpose), rolled them back, and inked the edges with black.

4.  I stamped the Old Olive with one of the ISC stamps and the Noir Black ink, and placed that behind the opening.

5.  I used a heat gun to distress (melt) the organdy ribbon, and then placed it behind the stamped and distressed Rose Red card stock.

Thanks for looking!
