Color me Bright
Thursday is here again and I'm here for the CCEE Stampers challenge #1323. I am giving the challenges this month and I have chosen for the first challenge to create a card using the Direct to Paper technique. I really like this technique and it is easy peasy. The stripes don't have to be perfect, which mine aren't. It's also o.k. if you overlap a bit. It's best if you do light inks first so you don't contaminate the pads...hmmm..looks as if I didn't exactly follow that guideline. If you're needing instructions for this technique, they can be found here on Splitcoaststampers.
My card is really bright but I like it. I just made swipes with five different inks pads, added the circle and sentiments from an Inspired by Stamping Cute Circles set and the hanger is Jolee's silver flourishes cabochons. It has rhinestones in the little swirls and I see they're not showing very well.
Take a look at what the DT did and get out those ink pads and let us see what you created. It really is fun.
