Hello dear friends and blog followers. Here we are in a new month and a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More (Challenge #43). The Design Team at has a color challenge for you this week. I love these colors together, but I'll be the first to admit that I usually REALLY struggle with color challenges that have more than two to work with at a time. I just seem to have a hard time getting all the colors on the card and still look "balanced". But this week I am so pleased with how my efforts turned out... take a look:
The sponsor for this week's challenge at ATS&M is Whoopsi Daisy. I colored this darling Whoopsi Daisy image with my Stampin Write markers using Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie. The birds are colored with a copic marker (B06) that is surprisingly like the Pacific point (which is what I have sponged around the edges of the card layers). I left the leaves un-colored because I wanted to stick to just the three colors of the challenge. I ran the colored image through my Big Shot machine using the Labels framelit dies and then popped up the middle of the image. Here's a look from the side.
The PP layers is a piece of retired DSP that I stamped the flowers (from "Your are Loved") on with Melon Mambo ink. I was having so much fun stamping those flowers on the outside that I just kept going on the inside too. I'm really loving the look of the pink stamped on the orange.
I hope that you will decide to join us this week at Addicted to Stamps and More for the color challenge. If you don't have these exact colors - don't fret, just use three that are very similar to them. The rest of the DT has prepared some gorgeous cards for your inspiration. We also have two new DT members that we are excited to welcome to the team. To visit our DT and enter your card in our challenge all you have to is click here and it will magically take you to the challenge site. I can't wait to see what you come up with this week.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me - I'm sure glad that you did. Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
