DCBD 114 ~ Funky Colors!

Another Diva's coffee Break Challenge and can I just say, I feel challenged by these colors!!!! Holy Moly!!

For my secold layer. I took a craft piece of cardstock and smooshed some ink on one of my texture plates. I ran the craft through the sizzix. The Artichoke ink "stamped" on the cardstock and the rest of the card embossed in craft! I really love the effect and want to try that again! I got this stamp set at leadership and it's quickly becoming my favorite. I stamped all the main images on shimmer white cardstock and tied some craft ribbon on around the bottom. It's sort of springy.. Not sure that i like the final result, but that's part of the fun of stamping. Sometimes you make a masterpiece, sometimes, not so much! :) I really do love those texture plates!

I'm sure my Diva sisters have come up with some amazing creations for this challenge, you can check them out here.

Have a great day, and I hope you have time to stamp something!

That is so cool!Is it hard to clean the plates and rubber pads if you ink it up? I heard about doing that but haven't tried it yet.
