Bloggers Challenge - Color Challenge and Blog Candy Winner


Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  This weeks challenge is a color challenge, use Kiwi, Blue and White.  A pretty color combination if I do say so myself!  I can see this color combination being used with many stamps.  Using  it as a Technique, or just a nice CAS design.

I pulled out some Blue, Kiwi and White card stock, then settled on Bermuda Bay as my shade of Blue, I love this rich shade of Blue.  I also pulled Black as a neutral into my card pop my panels.

The beautiful flower image is from Fred B. Mullett (item FBM_365), inked in Bermuda Bay and Kiwi then spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist before stamping on the White panel.  I used Spellbinders Oval Dies to cut out the image, layered on a Black Oval then Bermuda Bay panel cut from Labels Ten.

On a side Note....Fred Mullett will be on the road teaching Classes starting in early July.  If you've been thinking of ordering, all orders must be placed by July 7th.  After that date, the studio will be closed until early October.  Click here to order.

The Kiwi and White panels are embossed using the Big Shot and Texture Fades Folders.  To embellish my card, I used some Black Seam Binding, Stick Pin, a button from the Accoutrement Line by Tim Holtz and a few butterflies using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.

Details:
Stamps - Fred B. Mullett
Ink - Bermuda Bay, Kiwi
Card Stock - Black, White, Kiwi, Bermuda Bay
Other - Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Seam Binding,

I was surprised this giveaway wasn't an Alice theme since it's an unbirthday blog candy! lol

I really love this card...the spritz & flick background turned out great! Awesome color choices! I love how you keep us up on all of the new stuff!

My favorite set right now is the Old Grist Mill mainly because I collect covered bridges. I just love the detail in all of their stamps!


Congrats!  Please use the email me by July 3rd to claim your prize.
