Bloggers Challenge - Color Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!   Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Celebration Theme, this weeks Challenge is a Color Challenge.  Use the colors of the Pillows in the picture below as the inspiration for your projects.

Last week it was the Link Tool giving me problems, this week it's my IP!  Not wanting you to wait for me to finish the post, I'll be back later to add my project!

ETA - my project!

Inspired by the colors in the photo, I created a Mixed Media card using stamps from Art Gone Wild, Stencils from The Crafters Workshop and the Gelli Arts Plate.
Mixed Media Card - Stamps from Art Gone Wild, Gelli Arts Plate and The Crafters Workshop Stencils used for Background

My card also fits the Moxi Fab World: Challenge #49 Make Your Own Background Paper.  I used Acrylic Paints (which fits the Simon Says Challenge Embrace the Old), along with the Gelli Arts Plate and TCW Stencils to create the Background.  I did a second Mono Print, on which I stamped the image of the Girl and Sentiment.  To add more interest to the background piece, I stamped the Romance in the Air backgound in Caramel Ink, then added more stamping in Chocolate using the Flourish Trio, and Collage 2 stamps.  I also added a bit more stenciling.  The Girl stamp is stamped on the mono print piece, cut out and colored with a combination of STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor and EgroSoft Pencils, blending the coloring with Gamsol.  The words are from the Confidence stamp set.  To accent both the Girl and words, I traced around them with a Brown Tiplus Marker from Staedtler.  I also added a few doodles around the words.  White Gel pen was used as accents, along with splashes of ink off the end of a paint brush.

Stamps - Art Gone Wild Girl, Confidence, Romance in the Air, Flourish Trio, Collage 2

Other - Staedtler Karata Aquarell WC Pencils/EgroSoft Pencils/Triplus Fineliner, Ink Blending Tool, Gelli Arts Plate, The Crafters Workshop Stencils, White Gel Pen, Blue/Yellow/White Acrylic Paint, Brayer, Paint Brush
