Summer Challenge


This week's Pals Paper Arts challenge is a Summer project! I have to say I love this technique. It is super easy, just grab a sponge and add the color directly from your ink pad. First start with the light color and then gradually blend the colors in working in the darker colors. I took the top note and made a gift box. I haved to say I am going to be sorry to see the Just Surfing stamp set go especially after seeing how well it coordinates with the Tropical Party stamp set.
Ingredients to make the project:
Stamp Sets: Just Surfing, Tropical Party
Ink: Basic Black, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories: Basic Black Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, Black Brads
Tools: Top Note, Stamping Sponges, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack
