Gina K Challenge Jan 16

Here is the card that I made for the Jan. 16th Challenge over at Gina K.'s I used her example as my inspiration, changing the colors and shapes. I started with Making Memories Ave Coral Coral cardstock for the card itself and black cardstock for the next layer (corners punched with Fiskars Heritage Corner Punch. I reused the tidbits left over from the corner punch as little corner frames. Next layer is white watercolor paper, embossed with the Fiskars Filigree embossing plate and brushed with black ink. I really love the way this looks. The image in the middle is what the challenge was all about...stamping with color. I colored on my Thanks a Bunch stamp ($1 from Michael's), "huffed" on it to re-activate the ink and then stamped my image on to watercolor paper. I touched up the edges with slightly darker colors using my MS Art Markers and used the Blender Pen to blend. I punched the corners and layered it with black cardstock and more of the coral cardstock. Under the image is some pretty ribbon from the Dollar Bin at Michael's (what can I say? I LOVE the dollar bin!) and I put silver brads in the corners to finish it off. I attached the image to the card with pop-up foam. This has GOT to be BY FAR my most favorite card yet.
