I was psyched to see that these amazing ladies (LeAnne, Tammy, Broni, Kisa, Cathy and Tracy) had organized a new blog that does weekly color challenges. (if you click on each of their names, it will take you to their beautiful sites). Yep, I think I am slowly becoming a challenge junkie - who knew!?! For the first Color ThrowDown, the colors were Pretty in Pink, Sage Shadow and Regal Rose.
This was a fun color challenge - it immediately made me think of flowers. Since I am new to the stamping scene, I don't have the SU papers and had to improvise on the colors. From the color pick chart, the shadow sage looks a little darker than this green that I had - but when I was scrapping at night, the colors seemed to work - anyhow, here is the card that I came up with:
The flower image is from Clear Stamps (Garden Flowers) and the sentiment is from Clear Stamps (Heidi Grace Designs). The flourish that is made with a watermark is also from the latter company. I paper pieced the flower and leaves with DP that was as close to what I had with the colors. I then layered the images and tied the ribbon from Offray. The Brads are from American Crafts and I finished the card with some Crystal Stickles on the "&" sentiment.
This was such a fun summery card. I made it while I was watching Hell's Kitchen on Hulu.... so sad that its all over - now which show should I get addicted to? Any suggestions? LOL! (for those of you who might not have heard of Hulu - be prepared to get addicted... it has so many great shows... and everyday there are more and more shows/movies that are added!)
Can't wait to see all the beautiful cards that were made with this color throwdown :) and can't wait for next week's challenge! woo-hoo!!
Hope all are well!
Ciao for now!
