Found this super fun blog this past week and had to enter with a card I was making for one of my daughters! One of the sponsors liked my entry and emailed asking if I’d create a card and be the guest designer for the next challenge??? I only panicked for a few minutes and then agreed to try. Here is the card I submitted to Jennifer for the OCC color challenge this week….
The color challenge is to use the colors Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue, all Stampin Up card-stock and ink colors. This little girl (Penny Black rubber stamps) is all ready for Spring, see the word “spring-time” in the music? I colored her with copic markers. I really liked using YG11 and YG17 for the certainly celery colors. I dyed a little piece of SU’s white taffeta ribbon green w/the YG11 marker…I’ve been wanting to try that! For the Regal Rose match, I used RV 11, RV13, RV14 and RV 19.
I used the teeny 1/16th green Bazzill brads in the two holes of the flower button and put the white dots on the brads w/a white sharpie poster marker. The flower button and the flower are from a Making Memories embellishment jar for Valentines Day. The leaves are two different Martha Stewart punches. The little baby’s breath is a border punch w/six little flowers and the stem is from The Punch Bunch. I used the Martha Stewart fence punch in the background and the Fiskars mini pinking decorative scissors to cut the top of the certainly celery card-stock, for the grass line.
I used the new Hero Arts grid stamp on the certainly celery card-stock and a Hero Arts floral background stamp on the regal rose card-stock. The small white buttons are from Lasting Impressions for Paper and I used a teeny strip of rose card-stock for the “paper” thread. Oh for the copic match to bashful blue I think I like B21 the best but I also used a little of B34.
