Color me


Hi Everyone! It's Tuesday, and that means a color challenge card from me right?? Well, I do have a color challenge card for you, but it is not my usual Splitcoaststampers challenge. I found a brand new color challenge blog called Color me Beautiful. It is brand new, and this week is the very first challenge. Here are the colors for this weeks challenge -
 
Lots to work with... :) We need to chose at least three of the colors in the palette to use on our project. I chose to use them all for my card. I consider using ANY color of purple a real challenge, so I really wanted to challenge myself. :) Here is my submission -
 
 
 
I stamped my image from Fast and Fabulous with Stazon onto watercolor paper, and then colored the blooms with Perfect plum, Rich Razzleberry, and Lucky Limeade. The shaded area behind the blooms is actually Wisteria Wonder. My sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray, and added a Basic Gray satin ribbon to complete my card. :) I love these colors together, and can't wait to see what is going to be next. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
 
Heather :)

Heather, this is lovely! My water coloring skills are severely lacking, so I have a great admiration for your talent on this! The shading with the wisteria wonder adds so much depth to the image.

Thanks so much for joining us on our very first challenge at Color Me Beautiful!
