Hi peeps! What day is it? Hah… Sorry, I can’t help it. It’s hump day!! And I am bringing you mid week inspiration from The Ton.
For today, I am playing with the gorgeous Autumn Sweater set. When I first saw this set, I was like oohh, this would be a fun one to play with and I was right.
To start with, I colored a panel of cardstock with various ink pad from The Ton. Starts from the bottom to the top, I used Plum Wine, Cosmopolitan Pink, Coralline, Lemon Drop, Soft Garden and Ocean Teal. I used long strip post it note to mask each stripe (each about 1″ wide).
Next, I lined it up with the stamp’s line, stamped and heat embossed the image with white embossing powder.
Then I trimmed the card panel slightly smaller than the card base and adhere it to the card base. I have to admit, this is the rare time I used jewel tone color ink pads and papers. Usually, I am not a fan of jewel tone and was pleasantly surprised that when I was looking at which colored cardstock to use for the base, this teal colored cardstock won. I am really happy at how lovely this card turned out. Great reminder that sometimes it’s good to step out of your comfort zone. 🙂
That’s all from me today, peeps. Hope you enjoy today’s card as much as I enjoy making it. Hope your Wednesday is a good one. Cheers…
