Challenges Here! - Praying you will be well...




Sometimes procrastination works. LOL

The Bloggers Challenge this week was to use Riding Hood Red, Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango. Honestly, I was thinking that is a WHOLE LOTTA color to work with! LOL So intially I was thinking what can I water color? But you know what? truthfully, watercoloring is EASY for me, so that would not have been much of a challenge besides the color combo... So I looked over my stamps and grabbed Bella Toile, then my Copics. I only have a handful of Copics, so the great thing I LOVE about them is blending them to make the colors work for me...I used what I had!


For the Riding Hood Red - I mixed COPICS E08- and R46
For Pacific Point- I mixed Copics B97 and B29
For Tangerine Tango - I mixed Copics Yr07 and E08
For Kiwi Kiss - I mixed Copics G24 and YG95

Some of them I just colored the lighter color first then went over it with the darker color.
The background on the Riding Hood Red is the Distressed Background and the words are a stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Hugs for Janessa is the title for the stamp set - here is a bit more information about that!
This set was created in honor of Korin's sweet little neice Janessa. She was born with Down Syndrome and later diagnosed with leukemia. She is currently going through chemo treatments and it has put great strain on her family and their finances, so $5 from each set sold will be donated to Janessa's family. When her cancer is in remission, the fund will go to another family suffering through the same thing. Click here to see the entire stamp set!
I also combined this challenges with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #56! Here are a few more details...
Stamp Sets: Bella Toile SU, Distressed BG and Hugs For Janessa by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
Cardstock and Ink: Tango Tangerine, Matte Kote Finish White, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss - Copics listed above - Black Brilliance Ink
Accessories: Prima Flowers, Dew Drops, Blue Organdy Ribbon, not sure where the white ribbon came from - just my stash. LOL, Dimensionals, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, Mini Glue Dots, Ice Circle Brads...
Whew! That was a lot to say. :) Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting! Have a fabulous weekend!!!
