Dynamic Duos Challenge

I'm excited to participate in a color challenge!

Dynamic Duo Challenge asks that we use these two colors:

I believe that the closest corresponding colors in the Close to My Heart Palette are Smokey Plum and Olive so I naturally use the Sonoma paper packet to make this card:

Using masking technique, I stamped the flowers in Smokey Plum and Olive.  To do this, I first stamped the entire image on a piece of post-it, then I cut this post-it into half to separate the flowers and the stem.  I put the portion of post-it with flowers on the cardstock, then inked up the stamp in Olive and stamped on it.  Because of the post-it note, the flowers were not stamped on the cardstock.  This idea is basically the same as using masking tape when we paint the wall.  This is a cool technique as you could add multiple colors to a stamp.  Try it out!
