Color Challenge #28

The beach was my inspiration for the colors this week. To play use at least 3 of the colors and comment me with a link to your artwork so I can add it to this post ^_~ Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, to just use whatever shades you have that are close. Have fun!!

Crystal Blue
Bamboo
Desert Sand
Buttercup
optional Heavenly Blue

Sparkle's Fun House Mouse Card
Sue's Beautiful Fall Woods Card
Marcia's Adorable A Little Something Card
Jena's Fun Best Buddies Layout

My Samples :



Papers : Crystal Blue, Bamboo, Buttercup, and White Daisy CTMH CS
Stamps : Friendship Flowers, Cottage Floral, Serendipity (CTMH)
Other : White Ricrac, Circle Windows, White Embroidery Floss

I wanted to do something fun and different so I made a circle card which I haven't done in two or three years, lol. I forgot how fun they are to make. I did a lot of fun stamping and layering with my favourite floral set, Cottage Floral by CTMH.



Papers : Crystal Blue, Bamboo, Buttercup, Heavenly Blue and White Daisy CTMH CS
Stamps : Paradise (CTMH)
Other : Harmony Sassy Strands (CTMH), CTMH Markers


I actually made this card first but it wasn't what I had in my head. I still think it's cute, just not quite what I had in mind for the sample. Some coloring with the markers to fill in the image, it was way handy that the buttercup marker on the crystal blue stamped image made the green for my palm tree and grass ^_~ TFL and have fun with the challenge colors!

Terrific colors. I love your circle one, too. When I finally realized months ago that I could play along with my SU colors, I just haven't had the time to get anything done. I really need to squeeze some of your challenges in. Meanwhile, I still LOVE to see the colors you girls use and the great submissions too! :) Kelly

Great cards and fun color challenge! I have really missed playing lately, but things have been super busy and I don't think it will ever slow down now. Maybe tonight with my hubby away on the YM/YW trek, I will get a chance to play once the kids are in bed.

Hope you're having a great week!
