Presto Paper Experiment!

I have been wanting try the Presto Papers for quite awhile. So I finally opened up the package and pulled out this grid paper...and decided to use Not Quite Navy as my color to brayer on...all for the Color Throwdown Challenge. Wow, is it fun to work with! I also brayered the smaller square in Not Quite Navy and a bit of Wild Wasabi. As an added experiment, I cut out the tag and inked up a retired punch stamp with the sentiment that added the greeting I wanted. A bit of Marina Mist DSP added the third color for the Color Throwdown. I added the Not Quite Navy brads and inked up the ginko flower from the Kind and Caring Thoughts set in that same color. The sketch is from Pals Paper Arts #52, always a fun spot to drop by and get inspired! This card seems to have a more masculine look, so saving it for the next male birthday. I think I will work with the Presto paper some is so cool!
