TSG #189 Color Challenge


     Using a color palette is not my strongest suit but that's what my TSG team mate Theresa has picked for this weeks challenge at There She Goes.


     I pulled out my Ninja Skillz stamp set to create this card.  I used a brick embossing folder for the background and inked it a bit.  Don't Ninja's usually end up fighting in dark alley ways?  LOL
     We'd love to have you play along with this week's challenge.  You just might nab a $5.00 gift certificate to the TSG store or you might find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight on our Thursday post.
     Listen to the Master Grasshopper and come play along.  ☺
     Happy Monday!


Supplies

  • Paper:  My Mind's Eye, Kraft Outlet Brown Kraft, Recollections, Copic XPress-it Blending card
  • Stamp:  There She Goes "Ninja Skillz"
  • Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Vintage Photo Distress ink
  • Tools:  MFT  Chevron  and Fish Tail Banners dies, Nestabilities Classic Ovals, sewing machine, Sizzix embossing folder
  • Miscellaneous:  Michaels button, Hang Tag String, Kaisercraft rhinestones
