Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

This card is for the StampTV Polka Dots Challenge where we are to use black, white, and/or gray with one other color. My additional color is tattered rose (peach). I started with a piece of Basic Grey polka dotted paper (the back side of "grapevine") and added a bunch of images to create my own patterned paper. The GKD stamps I used for the background were from: If I Had a Flower, Sympathy Label, Hope is Faith, Time, and Vintage Backgrounds. I used memento gray flannel ink to stamp the images and then lightly sponged memento london fog ink over the whole thing. For the focal image and greeting panels, I inked white card stock with Tim Holtz tattered rose distress ink . (I then stamped the floral image from If I Had a Flower randomly all over these panels in tattered rose ink to try to create a subtle background, but the ink soaked right in and you can hardly see it. I don't think it's showing up in the photo at all!) Next, I stamped my focal image and sentiment using memento gray flannel ink. The stamps used were from GKD Hopeful Flowers and Thank You duo. I created a mat for the gray background panel by sponging the tattered rose ink on white card stock. White and black card stock was also used.

OMGosh, peach and gray are meant for one another!  Just look at all your clever choices.  Wow.
