CC479, SC489, SUO, Morning Glories...

This card was made for 2 challenge on SCS:  The Color Challenge that Peggy gave us, and the SC that Ally gave us.  I like how it turned out.  I don't do the sketch challenges as much as I would like.  There really are some neat sketches out there, and I tend to fall into my regular patterns.  I used the Morning Soft set from SU.  I created my own dp by sponging garden green and pistachio pudding on white card stock.  I watercolored my image on watercolor paper, fussy cut it out and then glued it to my two circles I punched out of dp.  The cantaloupe flowers were cut out of dp as well.  Thank you so much for the challenges ladies.  Thank you to those who look and comment as well.  You are encouraging to me.  Have a great day!!  :>)

PPUPBEAT1, Lined Azaleas...

I am so happy that Marcella is still drawing floral images.  I love her stuff.  I did their first challenge, however I made a mistake and used one of the actual stamps and not the digital ones that were requested.  This is the azalea.  I stamped it and fussy cut it out.  I then took a black prisma and outlined it.  They I used watercolor and some acrylic paint to dab the stamens.  I paper pierced and added a few brads and the sentiment.  It was a fun challenge.

CTD292, Nature and Patience...

It's been a while since I've done a color throw down challenge.  The colors this week are a melon mambo type, lime aid, and a metallic silver.  I love the color melon mambo, although it looks more of a red in my photo.  Very cloudy skies today.  Anyway, I used the SU set Nature's Pace.  Thanks for looking!!  Have a great day, and try to make time to be creative.  :>)

CC473, Easter Lilies...

Today's card was made for the color challenge - baja breeze, so saffron, and sahara sand.  I didn't have the sahara sand so used a neutral.  I stamped the image a few times and paper pieced both the vase and some of the lilies.  I used an embossing folder on the baja breeze.

CTD284, Brilliant Bermuda Pansies...

The color throw down for this week is using plum, brilliant blue, and bermuda bay.  I used my new gelatos for the first time and mixed my blue and red to get a type of plum bg.  I watercolor my image on watercolor paper and then fussy cut it out.  I then popped it up on to my gelato bg.  I embossed the bermuda bay, and added some ribbon and brads for embellishment.  It was fun!!

CTD282, Grunge Birthday

This card was made for this week's color throw down challenge.  The colors are red, daffodil, and lime aid.  I first stamped my diagonal pattern with the green and red.  I then separately stamped my rose in daffodil and fussy cut it out.  I glued it down, and then had some fun with the Gorgeous Grunge set.  I added a sentiment from Sincere Salutations and punched it out.  I then added some ribbon and did some paper piercing.  A fun quick card.  Thanks for looking and have a great week.  :>)
