Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge

Ok, so I’m a little late getting this posted, but as they say “Better Late than Never”!  The Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge for this week is Real Red, Soft Sky and Whisper White.  Don’t you just love these colors together?PPA Color Challenge 187:  Real Red, Soft Sky, Whisper White

  I knew immediately what stamp set I wanted to use for this color challenge, Crazy, Mixed Up Love.   Don’t ask me why but I just thought the blender image would be great done in Soft Sky & Real Red.

PPA 187 I wanted the hearts swirling around inside the blender, and the buttons on the blender to be red while the blender itself was blue.  So my first thought was, “I’ll use markers.”  Great idea, except, I don’t have Soft Sky in a Marker; only an ink pad.   So what’s a girl to do?  Well, I considered my options but I finally decided I would ink up the stamp entirely using my Soft Sky ink pad.  Then use my Blender Pen to ‘pick up’ the ink off the stamp where I wanted it to be Real Red.  After I removed the ink from those places, I used my Real Red marker to color in the hearts & buttons.  Huff, Huff, and then I stamped as usual.   Perfect!  No one will ever know I didn’t have a Soft Sky Marker (except you, but you won’t tell anyone my little secret, will you?)

So now you know what to do when you want to color in a stamp  but don’t have the marker color you want.  This works best when color that is the main, or larger area of the stamp, so you only have to remove a small area.

Don’t you just LOVE this adorable stamp set?  It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, or any day that you want to share your love with someone.  You can click on the picture above and go right to my store and order your stamp set today.  Know what else is really cool about this set?  It’s available in German, French & Spanish too, so you can share your love, whatever your language!

I used a piece of Real Red C’oredinations cardstock from the Brights Collection because I really wanted the texture for this layer.  A piece of Soft Sky cardstock frames the Whisper White cardstock that I stamped on.  A little piece of 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon in Real Red  ties everything together.

Did you notice the little flagged-end banner?  That’s a new Stamp Set & coordinating Punch from the Sale-A-Bration catalog which will make its’ debut Jan. 28th.   You know  any stamp set that has a coordinating punch or framelit die, goes right to the top of my “Must Have” list.

Please tell me if you like the card I made.  Tell me too, if you like this stamp set.   I plan on sharing more samples made from this set in the next few weeks so stay tuned!  Come back tomorrow for more sneak peeks from the Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration.  Tomorrow is our Pals Blog Hop so you’ll be treated to many great projects from the Pals.

Like me on Facebook so we can stay in touch there too!  Thanks!  🙂

Spread the love!
