It's that time again! Time for the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop. If you didn't start at Taylor's Blog, make sure you head over to get the deets on the hop and how you can participate next month! This month's theme is Autumn/Thankful, I had originally planned on using the Celebrate Life set, but I can't count and didn't order it in time :( so I went through my Taylored Expressions stamps and realized this set, CreativiTea, would fit perfectly for a Thank you (besides I owe someone a "thank you" card and this is just her style). The papers from the September Key Ingredients kit were a perfect match! I just love when things fall in to place like that.
I used the flower stamp and stamped it randomly on my white panel using VersaMark ink, it still seemed a little too plain so I took my R0000 and G0000 Copics and colored in the flower and stems. It's faint enough that it doesn't make the card too busy, but adds just enough color so that the panel doesn't look too plain. I just LOVE this look! When Copic first came out with these ultra pale colors, I remember thinking "what on earth do I need those for?" Hehehehehe. I was really worried when I started this card, but now that's done I am really liking the look of it! Great stamp set + great sketch (thanks to Sankari) + a great kit to get me going = 1 very wonderful card! Well I've chatted your ear off enough, time for you to be on your merry way and enjoy the rest of the hop. This is an amazingly talented group of ladies, so grab a latte and get comfy!
