A Posy becomes a Rose - a Little Fun with Challenges



I'm still playing catch up on a few challenges from this past week, but I've also gotten a jump start on one for next week!  I guess sometimes it pays to procrastinate!  I love Mona's inspirational Color Challenges, and wanted to play along, so I combined this weeks Cupcakes Creations Color Challenge with the fun  JUGS 58 Sketch.












I created the Rose, using a morphed take on the Tim Holtz Grunge Roses, as I used the Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Die Cut and some SU DSP that coordinated with Mona's color story.  I needed to add in the Teal and Gray to go along with the colors - hmm where to add that?  Then I remembered in  a past TJNL  there was the Designer Souffle' Technique, so I morphed that be using my Teal Marker, adding some color to the open areas of the DSP.  The Gray I worked in with some Antique looking Gems.

I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show Something Shabby Challenge.
Details:
Stamps - Heartfelt Creations Elegant Autumn Swirl Leaves (Sentiment)
Ink - Marker, Chocolate
Card Stock - Chocolate, Vanilla, Kraft
Other - Ruffle Ribbon, Sponge Dauber, Gems, Pop Up Glue Dot, Glossy Accents, Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Die Cut, Big Shot, SU Elegant Soiree DSP
