Fun Colorful Seasons Idea

Hello Stampers ~  We had a color challenge and I created this Fun Colorful Seasons Idea.

I am so excited!  Barb and Doug came over last evening and we hung a lot of my pictures.  I still have some to hand but I can do those.  I also ordered a new rug.  I had one that worked with my color scheme and one that did not.  The interior decorator suggested a different rug and to move out the one that did not fit.  The rug should be here on Thursday so I will be busy that day rearranging my rugs and finalizing my furniture placement.  I an starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel downstairs.  Then all I need to do is finish organizing my studio.  I will work on that at the end of next week after my family has gone.

Our challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments  was a color challenge.




These colors were a real challenge for me.  I did not have any idea how to work in the Cherry Cobbler.  So I began with that color with the Soft Suede and knew I could use Colorful Seasons branch and flowers.  I stamped the branch several times from both directions on my Whisper White panel.  Then using the flowers I did a second generation stamping several times on the same branch.  Once I had all my flowers stamped I still had to bring in the Pretty Peacock.  I went looking at my stamp sets and the bubbles in Beauty Abounds would be perfect.  Since my Pretty Peacock stamp pad is new I decided to use a second generation stamping of the bubbles also.  Now that I have all my colors used, the bottom of the card was bare.  I opted for a sentiment from the Colorful Season set and did a second generation stamping of it.  To add my bow I used some retired Whisper White sheer ribbon and dye it using the Pretty Peacock reinker.  When it was dry I attached it to the bottom of my panel and added a bow.  this panel was mounted onto a Pretty Peacock card base.  Here is the completed Fun Colorful Seasons Idea.

When you get a challenging color combination, think bubbles. That is what I did to create my Fun Colorful Seasons Idea card. Click the picture for all the details.
