Bloggers Challenge - Color Challenge

Happy Friday! This week I gave the Bloggers Challenge Players the following color challenge: Red, Teal and Curry.  Of course I forgot that somewhere in the transition Red ends up blurry when posted on my blog.  IRL the Red stamped panel is not blurry.  I had something else in mind when I posted this challenge to the group, but of course when I sat down in my studio to create for the challenge, I ended up going in a different direction.  I *love* the way this color combination looks, so I'm sure you'll be seeing it again soon!

For this card, I used images from the Artistic Outpost Cracker Jack Plate. Stamping the image ala Warhol on the colored panels.  The baseball image is stamped in Black on Vanilla then punched using a 1" circle punch.

Speaking of Warhol Cards, did you know it's the Try That Technique this week on the Technique Junkies Blog.  You'll want to pop over there to see how you can get the 2005 Technique Junkie Newsletters at half price (plus shipping),  this special is only good for 1 week though, so don't delay!
