Over on Splitcoast Stampers there is a Creative Crew that has challenges for us to do. This card is the Color Focus Challenge. Emma (Emma F - Lady & the Stamp) is on the Creative Crew and also has some very cool tutorials. I used her Box Arm Tutorial for this card. How fun!!! Here is her blog and on the right you can view her tutorials. http://www.ladynthestamp.blogspot.com/
This is my second post today so make sure you scroll down and see everything!
For the background I inked the Teahouse stamp in Daffodil Delight and then sponged Early Espresso randomly over that. Then I sponged the cardstock after I stamped it. I distressed the edges and sponged some more. I wrinkled the ribbons in my hands. Yep, just wrinkled it up. The striped Daffodil ribbon I also ran the Early Espresso ink pad over it. All stamping was done on Crumb Cake. Love that stuff.
