I have been lurking around a new-to-me challenge for some weeks now, and I had some time to play today so decided to have a go. The talented Mona Pendleton hosts the CR84FN Color Challenge each week, and this week's colors are so luscious I couldn't resist. Here is the inspiration photo for CR84FN15: teal, green, and yellow are the soft-as-spring colors. I had so much fun I made two cards.
The first one uses mainly stamps from Hampton Arts' new line that coordinates with Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime paper collection. HAD TO HAVE THEM! I limited myself to just three inks and five Copics (two teals, one green, one yellow, and one brown for her hair). The butterfly is from House of 3's Parisian Anthology, and the swirl is from Impression Obsession. I did a little shabby sewing to sew on an oval of crepe paper to give the fairy a background, then distressed the edges a bit. Also added some shabby scraps zigzagged to the bottom of my little garden scene.
Next up, a one layer card - absolutely no cheating here, just a single cardstock card base and stamps were used.
I started to really get in to one layer cards after playing in a Gingersnap Creations Challenge. Such a fun way to collage a bunch of your favorite images! This card also uses the Parisian Anthology, Hampton Arts, and Impression Obsession stamps, and adds in a blue frame and sentiment from Artistic Outpost's new sets. I just want to go decorate my house in these colors now, LOL!
Happy Friday everyone, and have a wonderful weekend. We have five hockey games in three days (two professional, three amateur) and some volleyball practice thrown in. I've got to figure out how to carry my stamps and ink and paper with me. ;)
