Today's One-Layer Wednesday challenge at Susan's Simplicity blog is to use faux embellishments -- stamps that imitate dimensional embellishments. No layers, no actual dimension - just one layer and ink!
I looked in vain to find a little Technique Tuesday set full of cute little stitch images, but once I gave up, I thought, "Fabric"!
So, I grabbed my good old Bella Toile background stamp from SU, plus Say it with Style from Papertrey (again!). Here's the result:
Both of these babies are 3.5x5 -- that way, I don't have to stamp the background quite as carefully :)
The one on the left came first - black and riding hood red (my favorite red ink by far!). Then I cleaned off my stamp and went at it again with Lemon Tart from Papertrey and Not Quite Navy from SU. I got a surprise after stamping -- the yellow turned out peach! Kind of a gradation of peach, actually. Apparently my stamp scrubber itself needs a cleaning -- it didn't quite get the red out :)
So, peach it is. Probably my least favorite color. Can't win every time! It's still kinda pretty, though.
Thanks for stopping by! You should play along, too -- good times abound.
