Wednesday Challenge

It’s Challenge day and I decided to double your pleasure on this one!  I’ve combined a color challenge with a sketch challenge.  A friend of mine just got a new job and I wanted to send her a congratulations card, but one that made her think of Spring at the same time.  So the color challenge came from I came, I saw I created –  http://icameisawicreated.blogspot.ca/2012/04/creative-color-challenge-04-16-12.html.  She picked colors that I love the Pool Party and the Wisteria Wonder.  The sketch challenge came from Taylored Expressions – http://tayloredexpressions.blogspot.com/2012/04/te-sketch-challenge-157.html.  I love her stamps and hope to own one soon!

So here’s the card I came up with.

The card stock I got from Michael’s Recollections because it’s been weeks since my last Stampin Up party and I hadn’t received the 2012-2013 In Color card stock that I had ordered yet.  Trust me I’m having withdrawals!  The stamp I found in Michael’s Dollar bin and thought it was a perfect bouquet.  I colored it with my LePlume Markers. You would think this would be the easy part, but I couldn’t decide how to color these flowers.  I tried embossing, water coloring and stamping, but in the end the markers seemed to look the best.  The three brad looking circles are actually 1/2″ circle punches that I applied with Glossy Accents – I saw this technique on this Youtube video.  So Easy and saves SO much $$$$!!!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StHATM0wWCg&feature=BFa&list=UUMOZfHpEJw8TK4zOaTd_COQ&lf=plcpo

So using either the three colors or the sketch – what can you come up with?

Have a Magical Day!
