Colorful

A photo challenge which is also kind of a color challenge - that's something that would usually scare me away. But I recognzed the colors as the ones of some of my newest Distress Inks and I thought, why not use them all!

Made the background, sort of had a plan of doing something else but found the colors to give me more of an 80s vibe, so out came my unused robot stamp from a My Minds Eye set, heat set it and colored it using grey Promarkers. Needed to spike up the background, so used the number stencil from Tim Holtz. The background is made using a stitched frame die from Dienamics, put cut the paper to put on top of it, so it works as a panel and not a frame.
The design is much like the card in my previous post, but the colors give the card a different feel I think. There are no embellies on here and the background made of inks was very quick to make. All in all, this must be one of my quickest makes ever.

This card is for:
Inkspirational - #109 Color Inspiration
Cards und More - #159 Use Lot of Colors
Use Your Stuff - Get Inky
