My second challenge today is a color challenge for Pals Paper Art.
The colors the current in colors for SU, 2 of which are retiring at the end of June; Soft Suede is sticking around but Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry are retiring.

The card I came up with is pretty simple.

All supplies are SU
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Whisper White
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Soft Suede, Crushed Curry
Accessories: Bermuda Bay 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon
Punches: Modern Label, Word Window, Large Oval, Ticket Corner

I stamped the image in the center of Whisper White cardstock, and then covered that image using Dotto with an oval cut from the large oval punch. Using a sponge I brushed the Soft Suede ink all over the Whisper White cardstock, and along the edges. When I was done with the Soft Suede ink I removed the oval piece and the area under that oval is clear, and really stands out.

I hope you enjoy

Cool technique, it really draws the eye to the stamped image! I am going to have to give this a try.
