Always Thankful For A Friend UDI60

Did you hear the big news?  Stampin’ Up! has extended it’s FREE BIG SHOT MACHINE Opportunity through November 11th!  I’m extending my special through November 11th too!  Scroll to the bottom of 

>>THIS post for details/information<<

I decided to try my hand at water coloring with markers on water color paper this week… the jury is still out, but I think that I still prefer water coloring on Whisper White card stock!

Today’s Utah Divas International Color Challenge was pretty simple… use Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla in a card.  I chose to watercolor the  barrel full of pumpkins from the Always Thankful stamp set.1.UDI60_SharonField

Additional colors were added along with the challenge colors… LOL, I just kept grabbing markers and coloring like a 5 year old with a new coloring book!2.mini library clip on sentiment UDI60

After adding a tiny embossed strip along one edge of the card, it still needed a little ‘something’… so added the “Thanks for being a friend” sentiment, popped up, and embellished with a mini library clip too.3.pumpkins in wheelbarrow, watercoloring by Sharon Field

I have the hardest time with wheels… just don’t know what to do with them.  Luckily, the wheelbarrow only has one wheel… whew! 

Here’s the official challenge inspiration piece… udi_060_Nov01_on_Createdbyu_blopgspot

Looks like a lot of work, doesn’t it with all the fondant embellishments!

Hope you’ll play along with today’s challenge… just make a card using the challenge colors, upload to an online gallery, forum or blog and then copy/paste the URL of your creation using the linky tool at the Utah Divas International Design Team Blog!

See you tomorrow with a new challenge from the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge!
