This card is for the 441 Color Challenge on SCS. I have had the privilege of being a hostess on the design team for the last 4 months. This is my last card - kind of sad. Becky picked the colors night of navy, cajun craze, and soft sky. The dessert option was to make a masculine card. I used the Bluebird image from PSX. I watercolored it. I used the leaf embossing folder. I found a twig in my back yard and then popped my bird up. I enjoyed making this card and am pleased with how it turned out. It's nice to have another masculine card in my stash.

Unity Stamp Co. picked a beautiful color palette for their color challenge this week. The colors are not labeled with names, but I took them as summer sun, more mustard, crumb cake, and sage shadow. I used their stamp set called Feel the Love. I first stamped on vanilla the image with various colors on it. I then sponged my colors of choice, and then heat embossed the image and sentiment again. I did a little dry embossing as well, and used an antique brad. I just love these colors. Thanks for looking!! Don't be afraid to jump in on some color challenges this fall.

I had the privilege of hostessing the color challenge on SCS this week. I chose bright colors, as the summer is coming to a close. They are melon mambo, daffodil delight, and old olive. The dessert option was to use flowers either in an image, brad, die cut, or whatever else. I used a Flourish image - Sweet peas and watercolored them. I also used an embossing folder. Thanks for looking!! Come play with us!! :>)

This card was made for the 254th Color Throwdown Challenge. The colors this week are brilliant blue, pool party, kiwi kiss, daffodil delight, and crumb cake. I used the Flourishes Waterlily set and watercolored it. I popped up one of the blooms. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. Thanks for looking and your comments. :>)
