This card was made for the Color Challenge #17 on Stampin' Addicts. I love color challenges although I don't always participate. These challenges on Stampin' Addicts are super nice because there is no deadline!! I don't always work well under pressure! I think deadlines stifle my creativity-actually I think I just keep putting things off, or I am easily distracted; now what was I saying? Oh yeah. The Color Challenge was Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy and Old Olive. These are great colors together. Pumpkin Pie is my favorite orange!! The set I used is Friends 24-7. Love this set!!! This is actually the first time I inked it!
I tried embossing Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware but for some reason it is not very smooth. I used Old Olive craft ink and clear EP. I think my heat gun may be going out on me-I have had it for several years and it is not (gasp!!) a SU one so I should replace it. It doesn't seem to be getting hot enough. Oh well, just pretend the hardware piece is supposed to be distressed!! It looks like some old piece of furniture that has several coats of paint on it!!!
