Bloggers Challenge 44 - Color Challenge

It's week 44 of the Bloggers Challenge - and this week brings a Color Challenge. Colors to use this week are Certainly Celery, Brocade Blue, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, and White or Vanilla if needed. Color Blocking (10/02 TJNL) came to mind - it's the perfect technique for adding colors to your cards.


I stamped my image from Bloomin' Beautiful in black stazon on watercolor paper and water colored my flowers with Brocade Blue, the centers have a bit of So Saffron, and a dot of Crystal Effects to make them pop. The leaves are colored with Certainly Celery. For the vase, I stamped my image on my Afternoon Tea Designer Series Paper, cut out and adhered to my stamped image. I used my sponge dauber to add Chocolate Chip ink around my image. I inked my Sanded Background stamp with Chocolate Chip, stamped off a few times, then lined up my color blocked pieces and stamped my image. The sentiment from Bloomin' Beautiful is also stamped in Chocolate Chip.

For my color blocking - I cut my pieces as follows:
Brocade Blue 5-1/8" x 1-3/8"
So Saffron 3" x 2-3/8"
Certainly Celery 2" x 2-3/8"
Chocolate Chip 5-1/4" x 4"
Base card is Very Vanilla

Be sure to check back tomorrow - as I'll be sharing some sneak peeks of the upcoming new releases from Artistic Outpost.

Have a great Friday!

Very nice card - the colors look great together! I wondered how you got the brown sanded look - I didn't realize you could buy a stamp like that.
