Who's a Pansy?

Brushed Ink Stripes Pansy Collage
Tutorial Time at Speedy TV has us brushing on ink in stripes.  It's a lovely way to add subtle color to a background or image and I enjoyed trying it.  My challenge to myself was to use a new embossing folder and border punch, and a stamp from my Spring Inspiration Station.  So I chose a pansy collage that I hadn't used in quite awhile that requires adding color with alc markers and pencils after heat embossing.  I brushed the inks onto the background layer as well as the stamped layer, used the new punch, and framed the pansy image.  I love the colors purple and green together and I'm thinking of spring even though we're having a cold front in Florida.  This card will also be entered into a challenge at Victorine Original StampsMy Time to Craft Challenge,
the All Sorts,  and the One Stop Craft Challenge blogs. Thanks for stopping by and making a comment!
