One-Layer Wednesday 126 - Neglected Color

Monday, February 11, 2013

This weeks One-Layer Wednesday Challenge is hosted by Susan.  She's given us a great challenge;  use a "neglected color" in your ink collection.  This can be a color you really don't like, or maybe a color you've forgotten about.   Well, I didn't even have to think about this. I knew exactly which  color I was going to use.

For my card I used Autumn Rose, by Papertrey Ink.  Please... don't get me wrong, I adore Papertrey Ink. I've just not had good results with this color.  I'm sure it's just me!  You know, operator error.

So pull out some of those neglected inks and ...HAVE FUN! You may find a new favorite color.

Did you notice the handmade envelope?  There's a great tutorial on SplitcoastStampers.  You can make any size envelope you need, and it's a great way to use up some of that paper stash.

I forgot to mention, this card is 4x4 square.

Stamps: Verve
Ink: Autumn Rose-Papertrey Ink
Paper: Papertrey Ink (card base) Envelope: Paper Studio
Accessories: Bling
