Birthday Card


Monday lunchtime sketch challenge from Techno Stamper has been inspiring me a lot lately! I have done several now. This is a birthday card meant for Fall but not to be totally Fall colors. Which leaves a lot of choices really. I started with blush rose chalk ink from ColorBox and it isn't anything like blush or rose that I am used to from Stampin' Up. I find that particular ink to work the best with acrylic stamps. Nothing stamps cleaner and more solid that those inks! Anyway I ended up matching it with these colors. They are odd colors together though! Seems to work - Groovy Guava, Basic Black and Riding Hood Red. Hope ya like!

Very pretty card! I agree, the chalk inks work best with acrylics...found by much trial & error! This is a nice color--and it does work well with your papers! Nice take on the challenge!
