Paper Dolls Challenge #22

I just love Amy's challenge this week for the Paper Dolls! Here is what she is looking for:

The Challenge:
1. CAS
2. lots of white space
3. and a pop of color

I knew I could handle that! So here is today's challenge card:

Here is a the crazy thing about the ink on this card! The paper and ribbon are Scarlet Jewel from PTI! I don't have that ink to match so I didn't even think to use this color and originally wanted to use Pure Poppy...my go to color! So I had the card all mapped out and then stamped the image with Pure Poppy! This is what came out! I realized that the last time I stamped this image I had used Palette's Burnt Umber and didn't clean the stamp! (Uggh! I know! I know! I usually clean my stamps!) But playing with that mix some more has given me a perfect Scarlet Jewel match! I just love it!

So, I hope you like it! This really turned out to be a seriously Silke inspired card, from white on white and the pearls! She knows I have a pearl addiction that all started with her! Thanks Silke! ;)

If you have a chance, we would love to have you play along with the Paper Dolls! There are at least 3 challenges still open, so find one you like and jump in!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great week!

Ok Laurie.....this is bee-u-tiful! Love your impressed background, the hand cut mat stack layer, and your fun find with the ink!! This couldn't be any prettier! I can never use the Swiss dot ribbon well...you've done a great job with your bow. Thanks for playing along with my challenge on the Paper Dolls blog!! Can't wait to see you!

Goodness Laurie this is beautiful!! YOur bow is fantastic and I love that the mistake turned out to be PERFECT!!! Is that mat stack 3?? Did you trace and hand cut the mat? I wish I had seen this before I had banana bread because this would have been the sweet I needed this morning!!

Eva said...

This is AWESOME...and the inl story too funny! Good thing we dont clean those stamps off,hehe. Have you tried Palette Bordeaux.. whatever it is, would it be close to the scarlet? I am not at home or I would look at my chart but I think it would work if you have it.

Simply gorgeous! Isn't funny how sometimes stamping accidents really turn out to be the best.

Sabrina said...

I love it when what seems to be an accident or mistake turns out to be the best thing that could have happened. Unfortunately, that isn't always the case. Laurie, you did it again - This is absolutely Fantastic! You are so talented!

Aimes said...

I love this card and how it's stamped and then stamped again. It really looks like it could be the shadow...is there an art to that or is it just luck?
