I’ve had this card for the Color Throwdown Challenge finished for a little while, but then I was busy all weekend and didn’t have a chance to write this post until tonight. I went on a road trip to IKEA to buy a bed. Then we put the bed together last night. Do you know how little sense IKEA instructions make at 12:30 am? However, we were victorious. The bed is 90% finished, with only the storage drawers needing to be put together. And the new memory foam mattress? Sooooo comfy. Aaaanyway, the card. The embossing paste is tinted with reinker, but it’s hard to see the purple color because if the shimmer from the pearlescent paste. Down in the lower right corner, there’s an area that shows the true color of the paste.

And now I’m off to sleep in that wonderful new bed. :)

I had a wonderfully crafty weekend. Saturday was Crafty Saturday and I joined my friends in a day of crafty fun. And today I spent much of the day straightening up and organizing my craft room. One of the cards I made on Saturday was this card to play along with the Color Throwdown Challenge. I wasn’t 100% sure where I was going when I started this card, but I do like the softness of the colors.

So apparently I got that clean and simple bug out of my system with my card the other day. My card for the MFT Color Challenge is anything but clean or simple. It’s been a while since I’ve played with stencils & paste, so I decided to break them out today. I colored my modeling paste with some reinker before spreading it over the stencil.

I’m all messed up on days here with this long weekend. (Not that I’m complaining about the long weekend, mind you!) But I almost forgot to post my card for the Color Throwdown Challenge this week. I decided to go clean and simple with this. Not my usual style, but hey, it’s good to switch it up every now & again, right? I have a feeling this new Label Maker stamp set may become my new favorite sentiment set.
