A Color Challenge and New Rubber!


Hi there! I hope you're having a great day! Before I talk about my card, I just want to give a huge shout out to my ATS Design Teammate Dawn Easton (TreasureOiler)-- she is now a member of the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen !!!!! Whoohoo! Gongrats, Girlie!! :) The other new Dirty Girl is Emily Giovanni (emilymomto3boys). Head over to their blogs or galleries to congratulate them!! Emily hosts the weekly SCS Color Challenge, and this week's color combo was suggested by Dawn -- so I made this card in honor of them both! :)

This image and sentiment are from American Art Stamp. I recently purchased several of their stamps. I love Karen Stolper's whimsical people, and I finally had a chance to ink this one up! I colored the image with Copics, and I drew in the ground line with a black SU! marker. The image panel and matting were cut with my Rectangle Nestabilities. The background is SU! Pretty Petals. I sponged all the edges of the cardstock and paper with coordinating ink (So Saffron on the white cardstock). I mounted the image and sentiment panels on dimensionals, and I added some ribbon and Primas.

Tomorrow I'll have the ATS Wednesday Challenge for you -- it's a sketch challenge. I hope you'll stop back to check it out! Until then, have a great day!! :)
