A Color Challenge Card


Hey there! Today I had a chance to play with the Color Challenge colors -- Real Red, Soft Sky, and Blue Bayou. I decided to do an all-SU! design, because I don't do that nearly enough anymore! All the images are from True Friend.

I inked the top of the flower with Soft Sky and thumped it with a Real Red marker. The bottom was inked with Blue Bayou. I added a Not Quite Navy brad to the flower center. For the sentiment, I used post-it notes to mask off the brackets before inking it with Blue Bayou. I knew I wanted to use a 1 3/8" circle punch, so I had to eliminate the brackets to make it fit. I added some dots to the scallops and faux stitching to the photo corner with a white gel pen.

I want to remind you to stop by the All That Scraps Message Board tonight at 10:30 ET for the C.C. Designs release party. The new stamps will be available at 12:01 AM at All That Scraps. I'll be back tomorrow with the ATS Wednesday Challenge. Thanks for visiting today -- I really appreciate it! :)
