Pure Color Fun!

So I made this card inspired by Pure Color With Kara: #3 Stamping Text Over Stamped Images then as I was typing the whole challenge tittle I realized that I totally missed the mark, I thought that I just needed to use the colors. Oh! well here it goes anyways, I did have fun playing with water coloring techniques using ink pads and water.

Now here is my second take and this one actually plays by the rules of the challenge: stamping text over stamped images. Yay!

Love the quilting effect that this stamp image from the wplus9design studio (sweet nothings) gave to this card by stamping it over and over using the different colors. I am sure I will be doing this again and again.
I have to say that adding text over stamp images is not as easy as you may think, you definitely need to consider the font of your text in size and in boldness to your background so that is not too much going and you can appreciate the text as much as the background...looking at that more closely in Kara's sample helped me. I also realized that I need to add some big and bold sentiment stamps  to my stash ; ) that grateful stamp from Kara's samples is going in my shopping list. Fun challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

other stamps used are also from wplus9design studio (quite like you) the happy birthday card was made using the Happy Trio die also Wplus9design studio.
