Papertrey Ink-Make it Monday Challenge

Today was supposed to be ironing day.  I have had the excuse that it was too hot in the house to iron, but not today.  Just when I was going to shut off the computer and go turn on the iron, I saw the Monday Challenge from Papertrey Ink in my inbox.  The challenge is to use a Texture Kissing technique on a project.  Well, that sounded really quite difficult, and I was sure it would keep me from starting the ironing for at least a couple of hours, so I was up for that.

It did take a few tries to get an inked image that was a keeper.  I also made it more difficult by making the decision to stamp in an odd bluish violet colour.  I have a small warehouse of paper, and I had to search through it all, to find a small patterned background paper that complemented that ink colour.  That was good, because now I have even less time to iron, and a new mission to find a 6 X 6 paper pad in bluish violet with small patterns.

In the end, I was quite happy with the finished result.


Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Pack Your Bags stamp set, Papertrey Ink Ombre Builders stamp set, Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts ink, Papermania patterned paper, Recollections card base, Craft Medley sequins, Wink of Stella glitter pen and Scor tape.
