Just Believe CS06 Color Challenge

Welcome again to the Creative Sketches Design Team challenge!  This week, we have a color challenge.. Garden Green, Tangerine Tango and More Mustard, plus one neutral.  I always find it quite easy to work with just three or four colors… especially when they’re colors I happen to like.  Tangerine Tango and More Mustard, again… are not my ‘go-to’ colors… but Garden Green is one of my favorites… I can’t wait to show you what I’ve created, but first… the design team creative color challenge brought to you by a yummy bowl of soup!


Don’t you just love the paint cans??  Playing with paper and ink is a lot like playing with paint or fabric… swatches of color everywhere!  The paint cans on our design team challenge (and the lovely frame) were created for us by my good friend Tee (Green Isles Crafts).  Tee is a computer whiz, blog designer, and very talented artist, AND a member of the Creative Sketches Design Team as well!  Be sure to visit her blog and leave a sweet comment… she works very hard to help us here at Creative Sketches!

Here’s my simple layered card for today’s CS06 Color Challenge:


The Image from the Just Believe Stamp set was inked with Garden Green Classic Ink, and then the ink from the blossoms was removed with a blender pen.  After re-inking the blooms with a Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Markers , warm air was ‘huffed’ onto the stamp and then applied direct to paper.   I went back and added some more Tangerine Tango highlights to the flowers just to make them pop.  The second image on the card is part of this Saturday’s Super Saturday Tutorial… I’ll be sharing two fabulous techniques, you won’t want to miss them!

Nice job! I like this card. The corner treatment is impressive, and the stamps are nice. Love the colors. And of course the shading & highlights on the flowers are esp nice.
