BLOGGERS CHALLENGE #56

This is the corrected version. :) Iaccidently didn't READ all of the directions and missed the Mellow Moss.

This weeks challenge was TRULY that...A CHALLENGE. I waited until this morning to see what a few others would post for some further inspiration. LOL Yes, I know...I took the lazy way out. But the colors were MELLOW MOSS, BLUE BAYOU, SAHARA SAND, REALLY RUST, and REGAL ROSE. We could add vanilla or white...

Now I personally like these colors, although they are not ones I use often and definitely not all together.

So after looking at some of the posts that were completed, this is what I came up with...

First of all, I colored the Serene Spring with Prismacolor pencils.

I stamped the FLORAL background in REGAL ROSE, with it stamped off to give it a lighter look. Then I stamped the Tres' Chic in Blue Bayou, but also had that stamped off. I sponged with Really Rust too. I probably wouldn't have normally done that, but was trying to go along with the challenge.

Here are the details of products:
Stamp Sets: Floral Bg, Tres Chic BG, Serene Spring
Cardstock and Ink: Black Staz On, Regal Rose, Really Rust, Blue Bayou, Sahara Sand, Mellow Moss
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Dew Drops (found at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps), Scallop punch, Mini Glue Dots, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat pack, corner rounder for scallops around the circle, Dimensionals.

Great job Chrissy - but - oh oh! You forgot Mellow Moss. Still your card is just so sweet, and I love those Dew Drops. Nice job on the coloring too...

Claudia said...

Your card is gorgeous! Great coloring job!

MJ said...

Tee Hee, you are the second person without mellow moss. If I had the choice I would have taken out Regal Rose, lol! Your card is beautiful though. I love the way you colored it.

Sheryl said...

Very cute, Chris! Hey you missed Mellow Moss too--it must be the last name, LOL!!!

Very cute card, well put together.

Barb Hardeman said...

Your "corrected" card is still gorgeous and you didn't have to take it apart to redo it! Not a big deal...just thought it was funny that two of you missed the Mellow Moss. I would have left out the Regal Rose if I could have. All in stride...

MJ said...

Still beautiful!
