Little Tangles #3: Color Challenge



Little Tangles is having their 3rd challenge and this one is a colour challenge.



I just love these colours together.  Next week my Dad turns 85!  He is one of the most kind, wonderful and thoughtful men that I know and feel so lucky to have been raised by him and still have him in my life.  Although you may say that these are not really masculine colours, the message is clear.  My Dad is my biggest advocate and I know he will love it.


After stamping the focal panel I ran it through my Cuttlebug with Papertrey Ink's Diagonal Stripes Impression Plate.  Then I added a piece of red polka dot washi tape and a couple of hearts that were stamped and cut out of a piece of white cardstock.

Cardstock:  White, Aqua Mist (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Kindness Matters Neat & Tangled)
Ink:  True Black, Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist (PTI)
IP: Diagonal Stripes (PTI)
other: polka dot washi tape, black sharpie, 5/8" circle punch
