This weeks' colors are from Joan Ervin - another wonderful stamper (and blogging friend) who always inspires me! Here is her challenge to us!
and here is my card!LaBlanche stamps called Spring Birds - I recently purchased several LaBlanche images and I'm really loving how they color up using Cut-n-Dry Pen Nibs and ink pads. I added some Lavender Lace ink to the colors of the birds even though that is not how they appear in nature! (artistic license, right?!) I sponged the edges of the image and the sentiment with Ranger Distress Scattered Straw.
Here's a link to a great You Tube Video on how to color LaBlanche stampings.
They recommend using LaBlanche paper to get the best impression with LaBlanche Stamps - it's like glossy paper but not quite as shiny. I used it on my project today.
It was a little easier for me this week using 4 colors - by the end of the month I'll be a pro! Bring it on girls!!
I hope you'll join along in the Color Throwdown challenge this week - you can check it all out here.
