Bloggers Challenge - Color Challenge

Welcome to another Friday Bloggers Challenge! This weeks challenge was to use the colors Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, Pacific Pointe and Kiwi Kiss in your creation. My mojo wasn't flowing last nite - I think 24 hours of rain had gotten the best of me! After creating this first card - the more I looked at the colors, the more I thought they'd make a great Christmas card, so I created a 2nd one.

For this card - I inked up my rubber brayer and randomly applied the inks to the Gratuitous Graffiti background stamp, then stamped on the white card stock.


Details:
Stamps - Gratuitous Graffiti
Ink - Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, Pacific Pointe, Kiwi Kiss
Card Stock - White, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Pointe
Other - Brayer
On this card I stamped the images in black, then water colored them with the colors used in the BC.

Details:
Stamps - Holiday Lineup, Santa's Lineup
Ink - Black, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Pointe, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss
Card Stock - WC, Black, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, Pacific Pointe

If you'd like to play along with this weeks challenge, simply leave a link to your creation here, or if uploading to SCS, use keyword BC63. For inspiration using this weeks colors check out the talented Bloggers Challenge Players!
Have a great weekend!
