UDI 26 Color Challenge with Tempting Turquoise!

I promise… I did use tempting turquoise ink on the butterfly.. unfortunately, it really didn’t show up well in the photo LOL!!  Funny, how you don’t really notice those things until just before writing a post!

Today’s UDI 26 Color Challenge features Tempting Turquoise and a whole lot of other colors as well… I’ve added shimmer paint, paper daisies, and First Edition Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the mix as well!  Hope you like my color challenge interpretation for the Utah Divas International Color Challenge Design team!


LOL.. I made this card a few weeks ago so I had to grab the card and really look at it closely to make sure I had used Tempting Turquoise Card Stock… and THEN I couldn’t figure out where the butterfly came from (which stamp set)… until I realized it was printed right on the First Edition DSP!!  Perhaps I should start making my supply lists when I create the card!!

Of course, the most dominate stamp set featured on the card shown is good old Baroque Motifs… a classic in and of itself.  My Baroque Motifs stamp set has been well used… in stamp camps, club meetings and workshops, ink stains on the wood show just how much it has been hugged, loved, and used!

Here is the original color challenge inspiration piece… I wouldn’t mind owning this little gem myself LOL!


The Utah Divas International Color Challenge is open to all who would like to play along.. simply use all SIX of these colors in a card, adding a neutral of your choice, and visit the Utah Divas International blog to upload a link to your creation!
