I was so excited about today's color challenge that I had to do another card. I watercolored my blue bird, and added a piece of Basic Grey dp to my card. I think I have only used this stamp once or twice before. I'd like to use it more and see what I can come up with.
Today's color challenge was to use the new blue from SU (pool something), wild wasabi, and chocolate chip. I substituted the blue with cool caribbean. I used prisma colored pencils with a little goo gone to blend. I embossed "with love." It's kind of a clean and simple card.

This card was made for the technique lover's challenge. It is called color blocking. I inked up a small square acrylic block with crumb cake, edging it with either artichoke or blue. You really can't tell so much now as I have embossed my paper. I also used a bit of the itty bitty bg to dot some more of the color. My work doesn't show too much. I later chose to use some ribbon to emphasize my brick wall, but it may have ended up losing it. I created the clematis flowers with an old flower punch from SU. It was a fun little project, and an easy technique.

This is my first challenge card for Speedy's Friends. It is #64. I'm not sure if I'll do this all right. I am still new to blogs and don't do facebook, but am rather enjoying Mark's Finest blog and TV site called Speedy's Friends. I hope I said that all right. Anyway, it was fun doing this challenge. It's also fun to see what the other stampers have done with their colors and various stamp sets.
