I also love looking at the different entries to those challenges. I try to see each and every one. I also try to leave comments... I think it's important that I make sure that each person knows how much I'm learning by seeing what they've done.
So, that brings me to this week's challenges...
Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration #26 is first. She chose great colors - Rose Red, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White.
Great colors! Happy! This is my take on it. Now, I know I saw a card(s) last week with a similar layout. I sketched it into my sketch book, but I stupidly forgot to write down where (which I usually do). So thanks for the inspiration!
I'm sorry about the close up being a little blurry, the wind was blowing and I had to take the picture quick. This was the best of the 6 pics I took, lol.
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes (SU!)
Paper: Rose Red, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink: Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad
Accessories: white embossing powder, Wild Wasabi ribbon (SU!)
Another challenge that I look forward to is the Color Throwdown. I love how the colors are combined! The colors this week were very autumnal...I love fall! Unfortunately, we don't get that season here in New Orleans, lol. But I love the colors, the smells, the cooler-than-80-degree weather!
The colors that we were to use were Kiwi Kiss, Really Rust, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip. I love them! And I just got the stamp set, Season of Friendship, and I thought this was the perfect set to use.
I popped up the birdie, and after a short, heated debate with myself, decided NOT to pop the leaves. It just didn't look right.
I'm still looking through my stash of ribbon for something to use, but nothing I've come across looks right. And my Kiwi Kiss ribbon hasn't gotten here yet. And I did stamp the inside...I thought it needed a little something extra. Oh well, I still like how it came out! What a change for me, lol!!! I hope you enjoy my cards too!
So here are the details!
