Thank You In Ruby Red!


This week's LateNightStampers challenge was to make a card using the colors Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Kraft. These aren't colors that I normally gravitate towards, so it was fun to come up with a card using them. I inked up the flower image using a Ruby Red marker and then lightly touched the edges with a Chocolate Chip marker. The stems were inked with an Old Olive marker. I then stamped the image 3 times on a piece of white cardstock. The edges of the cardstock were distressed and then I added some color with a sponge. Here's the details:

Stamp Sets: Flowers in Silhouette, Warmest Regards
Inks: Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Papers: Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Whisper White
Accessories: Chocolate Chip and Old Olive Brads, Chocolate Chip Double-Stitched Ribbon, Eyelet Texturz Plate, Big Shot, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Spiral Punch, Photo Corners Punch, Distressing Tool, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, Stampin' Dimensionals

Thanks for sharing.
