Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. This week my sweet friend LeAnne is our hostess with a color challenge. It's a pretty one, too!
I've had this NBUS background stamp on my desk for a few weeks now, and decided to take it out for a whirl. I heat embossed the triangles with white embossing powder. Then I used the smooshing technique with distress inks to add the colors. Finally, I splattered with a little water.
I'm also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is Distress It.

Speaking of triangles... While I was making this card, I kept thinking of this apartment building in NYC on the Hudson River, called VIA 57 West, or the Pyramid Building. I took this photo while on a dinner cruise. Pretty cool, huh?
Inky hugs :)
