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.

i don't know about where you live, but where i'm at in ohio - it's really starting to feel like fall weather. when i woke up this morning it was 38 degrees outside and it only got to be about 52 degrees as a high today! brrr! despite being chilly all day, i decided to channel some of the beautiful aspects of fall - the changing colors of leaves specifically - for today's handmade card.

today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on color swatch, so i busted out the book i made for round one of #the100dayprojecti used siri on my phone who helped to select a number between 100-200 [167] and i pulled the corresponding ink colors. after scheming up a design in my head for a bit, i decided to create a 1-layer card and to use a new stamp set that arrived this weekend.

#the100dayproject : 9/100-2

for the second day in a row the inspiration wheel landed on ink blending! i decided to combine it with a stencil today [actually two] in order to create a partial background in the center of the card. 

four shades of distress ink [hickory smoke, chipped sapphire, wilted violet, & blueprint sketch] are layered together to create my version of a dark and stormy night. i used the cloud stencil from lawn fawn and a circle stencil from mft. i'm a big fan of the way that each of these cards turned out slightly different because of the blending.
