Color Wheel Card

Lexi has a fun challenge this week for PTI MIM: Color Wheel Cards.  A long time ago I bought PTI Guide Lines from another blogger, but it seldom gets used.  Decided to pull it out for this challenge & I really had fun stamping. 
Lining up everything in my Mini MISTI made it super easy.  I stamped each color as many times as I needed to get them close to the same intensity.  The yellow is Memento Dandelion & the rest are from PTI: Enchanted Evening, New Leaf, Amethyst Allure, Summer Sunrise & Hibiscus Burst.  It did take some time experimenting with various inks to come up with my final choices.  Originally I stamped the sentiment from wonderful Words: Hello in black ink directly on the panel, but it was way too blah.  That led to an inlaid black circle frame, a white embossed sentiment on a stacked black circle die cut & a tiny layer of black showing on all 4 sides.  I needed to keep it pretty flat for mailing overseas, so just added a tiny clear gem to each image.  Simple, but cheery & hopefully it will bring a smile when the recipient opens it.  I'm also entering CAS-ual Fridays & SSS Monday (Rainbow of colors).  
Edited to add: Also entering SSS National Craft Month.

  15. Color wheel, CD, call it what you want, but it turned out just lovely. I’m sure the overseas recipient will be happy to hear from you. The black layers really tied it all together, Greta.
