Kristina's Color Inspiration #37: Loop to Loop Rub-Ons


I tried to get this posted last night, but my computer wasn't cooperating with me and dh was hogging the good computer, ha! ha! I was trying to finish in time (but that didn't happen!) for Kristina's Color Inspiration #37. I used Jen del Muro's Sketch for You to Try (LOVE her stuff!) and more of the new Loop to Loop Rub-Ons, can't seem to stop using them! This didn't turn out quite as I planned, but sometimes you just gotta roll with it!

Oh, I almost forgot to give credit...I got the idea of making the watercolor streaks in the background from a super cute card by Sharon Rogers at Stamping in My Neighborhood that you can see here. Sharon's a great business-minded SU demo that always shares stuff with us fellow demos on Splitcoast Stampers, thanks Sharon!

Hope you're having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

SUPER cute card, Angie!! I have loved this technique since I first saw/CASE'd Kurtis' card on SCS that uses it. He was FS01 over there and I discovered it's such a fun and easy way to add some color. Love that you used a little owl on your card - he's cute - what a great pkg of rub-ons!!

Oh, it's too bad you didn't get this posted for Kristina's challenge in time. This is seriously GORGEOUS!!! The new SU! rub ons look so fun. The streaked ink look is something I need to remember. It's fun and fresh.

Oh how cute! I love those strips of color behind the owl. I just can't get myself to break into those rub-ons yet but I love what you did with this!
