Colour Q - Blast From the Past

Sigh...  Last day of holidays.  I should probably spend the day cleaning and organizing, but that's far too boring and productive for the mood I'm in.  To the craftroom instead!

As you can see, this palette is from last year over at Colour Q.  These aren't colours I would necessarily put together on my own, but I thought they looked pretty darn good together.  Here's my take on things.

I went on a bender with wheel stamps a few months ago.  I don't like using the roller (the ink runs out and I can never get it straight) so I peel the rubber off the wheel and then mount it on the foam you can buy to switch wood block stamps over to cling mount.  The result is a lovely little strip that's easy to place and ink.  Another bonus about this technique is how cheap wheel stamps are!  They're less than $10 a pop, and there are a ton of really cute images.
