Colorful Options: February 2023
Today’s card was made with the Colorful Options February color: PINK. After watching Kelly Latevola Taylor’s 4 Cards with a Simple Stripe Stencil YouTube video, I decided to give one of her techniques a try. Using Pretty Pink Posh wide stripes stencil and the trio of Gina K’s carnation inks, my background was completed. The technique is to ink the stenciled background then move the stencil covering the inked lines and keep on going until the entire background is covered. It creates these pretty cool gradient lines for your background. The Love sentiment was die cut and stacked with multiple layers, a little stamp surgery was required after finding the “with’ word from a stamp set and added two pink hearts from a ephemera pack to complete my card today.
A fun, timely color and inspiring mood board with the Colorful Options challenge.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

Lovely gradient! It looks like you did a great job with her technique.
Your background looks great; I’ll have to give that technique a try! Love the black with the pink and white.
Thanks, Lisa. Keyy Taylor is fun to watch and always entertaining.
Congrats on your successful surgery. Amazing how the little things really make the creation.
Thanks, Bonnie, the added “with” did change the card to an anyone, anytime card.
Beautiful!!! Love the gradient background. After the successful surgery do we call you doctor now 🙂
The gradient pink background is really cool and looks great with the black.
Thanks, Judy, it was a fun new to me technique.
Great technique with lovely results. That background is just right for the sentiment and doing stamp surgery was a good idea. Stenciling is challenging for me at times, but I do like the results when done right.
Thanks, Johanna, it was a lot of stenciling but I enjoy doing that and was happy with the results.
This is a great card! Love the background you created. That “Love” die is a fun one with the heart. I like how your adding “with” made it an anyone/anytime card.
Thanks Golda. I appreciate you.
