i have an inkling...

Alesha Walls wrote this weeks tutorial featured in the Weekly Inkling on SCS. As soon as I read it I immediately thought of this Martha punch. Who am I kidding... I didn't read it. I looked at the picture, skimmed for measurements and got punchin'!
It was love at first site. I think this punch works amazingly with this technique. I chose this orange paper because it was a scrap from these boxes that I made for the last Ft Meade MD swap. And besides, orange is an amazing color! The card base (layers and all) was pulled from the french board. I made it last halloween but never did anything with it. I have some bellas on it in my gallery at SCS. I have no idea where the black and white gingham is from. I was on a card in a ribbon box. I was thinking about what ribbon to use when I spotted it up on the top shelf. I pulled out my YR07 Copic marker and colored away. I love coloring my ribbons. You really get a lot out of your ribbons this way :)
supplies:
stamps: stampin bella
paper: su only orange, dcwv
