Just For Fun® Color Challenge #3

Welcome back to Just For Fun's® Color Challenge. This week Kat Tucker challenged the design team to use black, cream and a touch of color.

I hope you are enjoying the challenges, I know I am, it is helping me come out of my comfort zone and try other colors. As the weeks progress this will get more exciting for every one to view and exciting for me to create. Don't forget to visit the other design teams blogs to see there wonderful cards.

My card this week I choose to color my flowers with Copics BG10, BG13 and BG15 for my touch of color. I used circle punches to layer.

For the card I cut a piece of cream colored card stock 7" x 7" and folded in half. (tip: this will go in a #10 business envelope, at regular postage $.44) . The circle on the card were made by using a "Yoplait" yogart container. The two ends are different sizes and work great to create backgrounds. This was an idea I used in a class I taught showing how to recycle items as stamping tools. Stamp Happy Spring on cream cardstock and layer on black. Now assembly everything together. Enjoy!

Stamps: Just For Fun® Flower A3350, Happy Spring (new no number yet)
Ink Pads: Adirondack Stream, Arhival Jet Black, Memento, Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Circle punches 2" and 1 1/2" , Copic Markers BG10, BG13, BG15, yogart container
