Bloggers Challenge - Color Challenge



Another Friday....Another Bloggers Challenge. This weeks challenge is a color challenge - pretty simple...Your colors are Brown (any shade), Sage Shadow and any neutrals. I had a few different Brown/Sage projects to share, unfortunately there was not enough light in my studio to take the other photos, so I'm just sharing this one piece I created using Stampin' Up!'s Fifth Avenue Floral.


As with most of my creations, I did make a few versions before I finished my design. I randomly stamped the flowers from Fifth Avenue Floral in Chocolate and Sage on my Confetti Panel and Sage strip of card stock, then sponged the edges of Confetti in Chocolate and Sage in Sage ink. Used my SAMJ to stamp my sentiment in Chocolate, added the Faux Brads to my panel. The main flower image was stamped a couple times in Chocolate on Sage card stock, then cut out and popped up on dimensionals - to give it the 3D look. Did you know this stamp set has a matching Embossing Folder called Manhattan Flower (page 202 of the Spring Summer Catalog). Hopefully I'll get my samples posted this weekend to share with you using that die.

Thanks for stopping by!

Be sure to stop by the other challenge players blogs, I'm sure you'll be inspired by their work!
