CTD #411 -- Celebrate

Hey all!  I'm back today with a card for the Color Throwdown Challenge.  The colors are purple, magenta, poppy red, and yellow.  I've been watching a lot of Amy Rysavy's videos on YouTube lately, and recently I watched one that involved dye ink stamping and misting with water.  I thought I would try my hand at it, and boy was it fun!  These colors worked perfectly for the technique, so I paired it with Reflections and Pretty Phrases by Paper Smooches.  

I had so much fun with this technique, I can definitely see using it again.

Ink:  Seedless Preserves, Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Versafine Onyx Black
Paper:  Canson 140lb watercolor paper, black from my stash, vellum
Accessories:  clear embossing powder, spray bottle, black twine

Thanks for stopping in!  If you have any questions, please leave them below in the comments!

  2. Totally fun!, I did the same thing- didn't watch Amy's video so mine are not as well blended. Fun card! So glad you Joey us at CTD!!
