Hand Stamped Sentiments - Color Blocking

Hello Stampers!

So what do you have planned for today?  I will be playing some this morning and then working later this afternoon.  I have been working ahead on some of my design commitments as I have a couple of swaps and tutorials I need to do.

Before I get into my card for the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge I wanted to share another photo with you.  I participate in a chat on Monday - Thursday.  Donna started this and we have a great time every day.  Donna has been on vacation so those of us left behind got a little creative.  We all took pictures of our feet and sent them to Robert who created this photo.  It was so much fun!





















Ok enough silliness for today.  Our challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments is color blocking.

    








I have tried this technique before and it just did not work for me.  I don't know what I was doing wrong.  I love this technique and this one worked out for me.  I wish I knew why this one worked and the others in the past have not.  If you know let me know.  Here is what I created using this challenge.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Head on over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog to see what the other ladies created with our challenge today.  Thanks for looking and have a Terrific Tuesday!
