#the100dayproject : handmade card 76/100-2 : friend like you
today i had several packages of new supplies arrive - and i've still got a couple on the way! [yayyy for black friday shopping!] one of the things that i was most excited about was the complete set of ink colors from concord & 9th. i've been waiting for them to come back in stock for what seems like forever and on black friday they did and i quickly scooped them up! just look at the glorious colors - and when i opened them, i was in awe. they have such a cool texture and the few colors i sampled are just fantastic. yay - plus, now i want to make a piece of art with all the ink samplings from the three main companies i use . so stay tuned for that.

today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on slimline again and i decided to try something a little bit different - but mostly in terms of inspiration! you know how when you think of something, randomly adds and sponsored posts start showing up on social media? [just me?] i pinned something on pinterest the other day in regards to boho rainbows and when i opened it earlier, my feed was flooded with whimsical rainbows in glorious shades of browns, tans, pinks, golds and dusty blues. i decided to use this as my inspiration for today's card.

i pulled a few colors of ink and decided to use the same stamp over and over to create a pattern that i would then add a sentiment to. moving in rainbow order [of course!] i inked up the stamp, spritzed it with water and smooshed it onto the paper. i elected to use heavy weight cardstock instead of watercolor paper which changed the end result a bit, but i like it.
