If you hopped over from Robbie's blog, then you know what this is all about... Stampin' Up! Color Coach...yada yada... Today's color is Tangerine Tango, and I went with the Pacific Point and So Saffron combo. I really wanted to make a very simple 2 layer card, which I did, but I only like what I've got today - no love here!
I have used two of my fav's in the stamp set category, Lots of Thanks and Magnificent Maple . I used the rock 'n roll technique to ink the leaf, first inking it with the Saffron, then "rolling" just the edges in the Tangerine. The thing I normally love so much about this leaf stamp because of its fine, sharp detail, but this time I wanted the colors to blend and soften a bit, so I spritzed the inked stamp with water before I stamped it. I sponged the bottom layer with Pacific Point, heavier at the top, lighter at the bottom to look like sky... Dunno about this one guys, but the technique is good. Let me know what you think, and be honest - I can take it!
