Avery Elle release week day 1

Hello.  Today is the first day of the release week at Avery Elle.  This month, Avery Elle is releasing four new stamp set and four new card stock colors.  Today we are feature the fashionable new stamp set that I am really excited about - ikat.  Ikat is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye. You can click the link and learn more if you are interested. Here are some inspiration I found on pinterest.

For my first card today, I used the rainbow colors with one of the stamps.  The sentiment is from another set which we will showcase tomorrow.


For my second card, I stamped another ikat image in Fresh ink provincial grey and colored the center with Copic. The the panel was adhered to lemon grass card stock.


Check out the rest of the DT for more inspiration.
