Today's Color Challenge on SCS (CC211) was to use Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss (or Old Olive) and Baja Breeze. I also wanted to play in Julee's Mojo Monday Challenge, mojo79, and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge FTTC8.... to use embossing. There's a link to both the Mojo Monday and Timeless Tuesday's Challenges on my sidebar, so come join the fun!
I am soooo excited! I won a Verve set of my choice during the project parade! Whahoo!!! I LOVE Verve stamps! I cannot wait to get my set! If you haven't played, check it out here: http://vervestamps.blogspot.com/ There's still time to join in the project parade and have a chance to win!
So today, even though it's dreary outside, and my body hurts, I'm doing the happy dance! I had fun making this card. I recently bought this stamp by Memory Box along with a 6 x 6 paper stack called Sugar Drop. Memory Box sure has come out with some great papers lately! I loved this pack and got a couple others which I'm sure you'll be seeing shortly. Anyway, I stamped the image with Stazon Timber Brown, on hot press watercolor paper (LOVE this stuff... thanks for the tip Dawn). I used SU! markers in Old Olive and Pretty in Pink, and a paint brush to color these tiny flowers and leaves. I outlined the flowers and centers with my Stardust Gelly Roll Pen for some glitter, which totally does not show up in my photo... but it's there. I LOVE that pen!!!
The sketch I used today was Julee's Mojo Monday sketch. For the Flourishes Tues. challenge, to use embossing, I used my cuttlebug to emboss these leaves, which have an Asian flare, and I thought they set off my image well. I matted everything on a Baja Breeze base. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for my dp panel mat, and SU! Pretty in Pink Ribbon. The image itself is on dimensionals. It's a simple card, but I love how it turned out.
Did I mention I WON a free VERVE set? Wahoo!!! I guess you can tell I'm excited!
I hope you have a wonderful day, and thanks for taking a peek at my blog! Come back soon, and if you haven't already, please sign my guest book near the bottom of the page!
