Inky Paw's Challenge - Color Challenge

                  Hello Inky Paws Fans!

We are at the halfway point of this current challenge.

Here is a refresher.

 MY take on the challenge is a simple one that uses up some of

the scrap paper we all have in abundance in our craft spaces.

I recently moved around a few things in my crafty space.

I use the ELFA system in my office and got a few extra slide-out baskets 

to put my scrap paper and bits closer to my desk.

Best idea ever! Do not know why I did not do this sooner.

I went right to my scrap paper drawer, pulled out the challenge colors

 and got to work creating a background for this card.

I cut a 1 ½ x 5 ½ strip of paper out of each one of the colors.

I took those strips and glued them to a piece of plain white cardstock.

I taped the Tumbling Hearts Stencil over the top of the strips of paper 

and a applied a good amount of clear Versamark ink over the top.

I heat set the Versamark with clear embossing powder,

and sat back to admire all the cute hearts.

The Large Scalloped rectangle from the Frames and Flags Die Set is

what I die cut my stripped background from.

My featured stamp is Roses by Newtons Nook Designs.

I made the bold choice of keeping the rose white

with just a bit of gray highlights and green leaves.

I used a sentiment that is part of the Roses Stamp Set.

I stamped the sentiment onto a banner that was created with the Banner Trio Dies.

For a final touch, I added some shimmer to the rose with a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen. 

Now it is your turn!
