Vintage Hats

I created a panel strip with the Technique Junkie Hats Off background stamp  I chose the section of the stamp that had the larger hats. I used the Houndstooth Check Technique Junkie background stamp with a dark brown ink on a light tan card stock.

Then I wondered what colors to use for layering and just couldn't decide.  I knew I wanted to tie a ribbon around the panel -- but what ribbon? So I chose this ribbon with dark brown, pink and green stripes.  Then I used  oink and light green papers to match for the layer.  Have you ever done that -- used ribbon as the basis for choosing your layering?  Usually i do just the opposite I choose the ribbon to go with the colors I chose to use.  So this was a different way to decide on my ribbon for this card.

Have a great day and get inky!
