Make It Monday #214

Stamping with Neutrals

In this week's Make It Monday challenge, Dawn spotlighted the use of neutral colors in stamping a background. Check out her video here:   Dawn's tips on Stamping with Neutrals

I inked Distress Inks on an acrylic block, misted with water and smooshed the water color paper on the block. After it was dry I stamped various Irresistibly Ikat stamps with a soft grey ink finishing the card with the sentiments in darker colors. The water color panel was adhered to a raspberry color A2 card and some shiny pearls added.

Stamps: PTI Irresistibly Ikat, Wet Paint III
Inks: Distress Inks - picked raspberry, shaded lilac, squeezed lemondade; Hero Arts Soft Grey Shadow; Momento Black; Versamark  
PTI cardstock, water color paper, silver pearls, white embossing powder
