Here is today's Color Challenge (CC174) from SplitCoastStampers http://www.splitcoaststampers.com. We were to use Groovy Guava, Barely Banana and Chocolate Chip colors.
My main image is a Stampin' Up! set called Simply Said.
-I first stamped the main image on Whisper White cardstock with Chocolate Chip ink.
-I then used a Barely Banana marker to color the flowers.
-I used a Versamarker over the flower images and applied clear embossing powder then set it with the heat gun.
-I inked my brayer with Groovy Guava and starting at the bottom of the image, rolled the color up to the top of the image. I re-inked the brayer and applied more to the bottom portion only.
-I matted the image on Whisper White cardstock, then on Chocolate Chip.
-I used All in a Row stamp set to stamp the stitching around the edges.
-Rub ons were applied as an accent with EK Success rhinestones.
-A Bazzill flower and rhinestone brad were attached in the top corner.
-Curvy Verses stamp set was used for the sentiment and accented with white grosgrain ribbon and banana ric rac. The main image and sentiment were popped up with dimensional stickers.
