Color Challenge Tuesday

Tuesday means color challenge day at Splitcoast. Today's colors are so saffron, real red, and regal rose- again not ones I would put together myself but I like it and will use it again. For my layout I used Julee's mojo Monday 41 sketch. I always love her sketches and I also love when I can combine 2 challenges into one card. I love doing the challenges but time sometimes prevents it so combining allows you to kill 2 birds with one stone so to speak. The hardest thing for me with color challenges is trying to figure out what image to use. This is a first for me too- cutting out and layering of my images. Also, note I did not use any dp on this card LOL. Take a look.

I stamped my flowers and leaves with pallette noir on SU white. I colored them with a combo of my prismamarkers and copics. It was tough though as I will not use SU paper with them again- they just don't seem to blend as easy on it as others I have used. I cut them all out and used pop dots to layer them the way I wanted. In the middle of the large flowers I used a circle punch to get the saffron CS in the center and tied a small piece of gingham ribbon and used a glue dot to attach it. I wanted to use a button but I did not have 2 small ones and the larger ones I had looked funny. I used red stickles in the center of the small flowers. I sponged around the sentiment for an added touch. I used my slit punch to make the scallops on my rose strip. This card took me a looong time today. I kept pulling it apart and reworking it. Hope it was worth it LOL.

stamps- bud basics, Words of wisdom
ink- pallette noir
