HSS Color Splash Chllenge #32

Hi There Stampers!!!
I am so excited to share with you my project this week for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Splash Challenge– we are using Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake. At first I thought it might be difficult to combine all those colors into one card, but I figured out real quick that it is completely possible and beautiful all at the same time. So lets take a look see at what I did.
I have to admit that I used Chocolate Chip Ribbon for this card, I didn’t have the new Espresso color YET… but the fab thing about those two colors is that the accessories for both are so close in hues that you can hardly tell the difference. :)

I love this little addition of splitting my background layers, I was looking for inspiration and came across a swap that I had received YEARS ago where the individual had done this- I am truly sorry for not mentioning the name of the person BUT the swap is so old that the info (if there was any) on the back was missing. Actually there was an entire layer of the card missing, they are packed so tight in this little box I have that they sometime come apart and meet up with other cards and become new creations by accident. :)
I also used a sponge dauber and with my Tangerine ink I smudged up the edges of the main layer for my images. I think it gives the card a nice soft dreamy feel to it.
I also did a different technique for the main image, I am sure it has a formal name but I cant think of it at the moment. :) I used my marvelous markers to ink up my image (Old Olive, Daffodil, Espresso and Tangerine). I added a little of the tangerine to the outer edges of the flowers and “huffed” on the stamp to moisten it and to work the two colors into each other. Some of you might be wondering what HUFFED is… you know that thing you do when you breath heavily onto the glass so you can write a funny or obscene phrase in the condensation you created? Well that is HUFFING for all intents and purposes of this blog. :)

I wanted to give you an up close image of the flowers, I think they turned out so nice and this wonderful set has such a cool texture pattern to the images.

Well I hoped you like this weeks fun, fast, and easy project that I created for you. Please take a moment and come join us over at HSS and play along. We would love to see what you have to create and share with all of us! Until next time~ TTFN
