I Love Teal!

I just love this color....if you couldn't tell! :) I've been taking part in a few challenges over at PW. This first card was a sketch challenge. The diamond pattern is a stamp from a set called 'My Life'. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to get everything lined up just right. If you don't own a stamp-a-ma-jig then you're really missing out. I'm such a perfectionist and I would have stamped the card 20 million times until I got it perfectly straight, but with the stamp-a-ma-jig, I was able to get it right the first time. Now I can really crank out cards!
This was also a sketch challenge. I had scraps left over from the first card and decided to sitck with the same colors. I used Water Lily Green Palette ink on both cards. A beautiful color, in my very humble opinion. :) Oh, something kinda fun, look closely under the words 'with love' and you'll see a faintly stamped image. I stamped on to white cardstock twice (so that I could get a lighter image) and then I used a circle punch to punch the center of the stamped image (the image that I used for the background of the card) and the result was a flower image. Kinda cool, huh?

Supplies for both cards-
My Life
Floral Dingbats
Tag Tidbits
Water Lily Green Palette Ink
white cardstock
Robin's Egg 2 DCWV cardstock

I so loved both of your cards when I first saw them on PW! I loved the clean look to them and they're both so neat!
