Just For Fun® Color Challenge #17

Oh my, this was a short work week for me. I took Monday off to recoup from StampFest Orlando. I had so much fun seeing all my stamping buddies, teaching classes and working the registration desk. It seem like we are planning forever for this weekend and it is over way too fast. If you were there write a comment on your adventure at the show. It was so nice to see Sherry again.

So on to the color challenge this week, Glenda challenged the design team to use the above colors. I really like using pale pink and green together it is fresh and clean looking.

My card is using some new images by Just For Fun. Not sure what the name of the stamp is but the number is G3436 and the sentiment is from the new Sentiments 1 USM 7018. I stamped the flower design with Memento's Rich Coco and colored with Copic Markers. I used Spellbinders die Labels Trio for my sentiment and added some pearls and a bow.

Don't forget to play along at Just For Fun Blog. You just might be the winner of a 25% off shopping spree. Last weeks winner is Katie Tate, Congrats to you, enjoy shopping.

Now on to viewing what the rest of the design team is up to. I hope you enjoy.

Just For Fun® Color Challenge #16

Good Morning,

I'm here in Orlando getting ready to teach my Copic marker classes. I'm hoping everyone taking the class will enjoy these markers as much as I have enjoyed learning why they are so special.

It is so great to see Sherry, it has been over two years since we have seen each other. Way to long. Sherry we have alot to catch up on. Now on to the challenge, this week Sherry has asked us to use the colors green, blue and yellow.

My card is pretty simple, not enough time this week to make something spectacular. I used the masking technique and stamped the Cherry Confetti Cupcake B3366 three times, layering them on top of each other. I liked how the cupcakes turned out using this technique. The cup cakes were colored with Copic Markers. I went through my stash of card stock and found some green, blue and yellow and used a border punch from Martha Stewart and trimed the ends.

Just For Fun's® Color Challenge #14

Kat choose today's challenge, she would like us to use a monochromatic color combination.
So I decided to get out the Ranger Alcohol Inks and see what I could come up with. First, I choose to use the color blue. So out came all the blue alcohol inks. I decided to use "sail boat blue" and "stonewash". Next, you will need a can of air. Dropping the ink colors onto glossy cardstock and then spray the air at the droplets to push the colors around. Keep repeating this until you like what you see.

I thought the Broken Mosiac Background H3089 would look nice stamped over the alcohol ink background. So keeping with the color challenge I used Adirondack Denim ink pad.

Stamp Happy Birthday B2900 with Denim ink and layer on blue cardstock. I tied two different colors of blue ribbon around the card.
So what do you think?
