Krafty Baja Pinkness

Today's card is a combined challenge, using Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge 234 for the layout and Color Throwdown colors. When trying to stamp sentiment in Pink Pirouette, my stamp was not clean. This "mistake" resulted in just the right ending! The Pink Pirouette was not really dark enough to be seen easily, so the residual ink had a blue hue and shadowed the pink perfectly! I love when mistakes turn out for the best. This is sort of a sideways rock 'n' roll technique, where you dip your stamp into a light color, then roll the edges only of the same inked stamp into a darker color. The edges of the image come out in a different color than the middle and it looks really cool. Thanks for stopping by today, and please leave your comments! I love comments!
