I love the look of colored pencils on dark cardstock. This stamp from Technique Tuesday was a perfect choice. I stamped the image with Versamark ink, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and first colored lightly with white pencil. I then added the orange and blue. By leaving everything else alone, the flowers really stand out.

I really love plaid. I have a number of stamps to make a plaid design, but I saw a loose look on Pintrest and wondered if I didn't have a background that would work. This is called "Writing Tablet" from MFT and I love the way it turned out. The color palate for this week was perfect for a fall wreath and a card for a friend recovering from surgery.
I am also entering this in Stamp Ink Paper challenge this week.

I really love plaid. I have a plaid builder by MFT and this one by Concord & 9th. I have give them equal time. I used red and gold colors for the plaid on a green card. I love this look and although the stamping of the plaid pattern takes some time, I love the results.

When I saw the large image I immediately thought of the Beautiful Bloom. I stamped with Versamark ink onto a watercolor paper. I heat embossed with gold. Isn't that a beautiful flower? I stamped a piece of chocolate cardstock with the radiating dot stamp and white ink. A gold sparkle "thanks" completes the card.

I was playing with this stamp last night trying to come up with a pleasing arrangement of the branch behind the word Grateful. I was pleasantly surprised this morning to see that I had matched the colors of the challenge. I used bronze ink for the rust and it looks great in the light. I added the yellow and brightened my orange Nuvo drops with a copic marker. I love the result.
