Color Isolation

Here's a card I made to enter this week's PTI Make it Monday challenge.

PTI Color Isolation

supplies: white and slate cardstock, PTI The Sweet Life and Simon/Hero Arts Prayers, Hero Arts Swiss Dots background, Charcoal and a paler grey ink, Winnie & Walter Audrey Cutaways, Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares

I pretty much followed Ashley's example for my design, but added some swiss dots to the background.  It was fun to get out these lovely multi-step stamps again and use them!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

  10. What a beautiful idea using the inside of the flower as your background stamp! just the right amount of neutral color to bring your beautiful rose to life!
