|Color Throwdown #108
I've got something a little different for you today. This is another one of my "new" stamps from the estate sale. I have no idea what the symbol means, but the famous quote is by Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu. This is a fairly large image so I made the card 5-1/4" square to accomodate it. If you're wondering, this is a wood block stamp by Comotion Rubber Stamps, Tuscon, AZ. I may never use it again, but I wanted to make at least one card with it.
I used the Color Throwdown trio of colors for my card. The base is chocolate chip, layered with so saffron and crumbcake (kraft). It was a challenge to get a good photo tonight as the lighting seemed to distort the yellow. You'll have to visualize the so saffron! : )
Notice my "ribbon treatment"? I thought it needed something and a bow was too much. So, I opted for a simple loop of ribbon. Please notice the "brilliant" way in which I tore the paper and stitched over it. (That's my story and I'm sticking with it. ; )
Just a quick post tonight. Thanks so much for blogging by!
