CCMC390 - Color Challenge


Sorry I have not been around much for the last couple of days, but it was my birthday on Thursday and just been really busy with nice things of course.

Today I am joining in with Create with Connie and Mary Color challenge.  This weeks colors are
Hello Honey Lost Lagoon Real Red 

Here is my card:

I used the 'You've got this' Stamp set for the background and flower, and the 'Tin of Cards' Stamp set for the happy birthday.  Can you see that I also used my Wink of Stella glitter brush as a blending tool!!! WOW I love them!

Do you remember me telling you to ALWAYS do more than one card..... SO glad I did today, and my first card had a little accident... can you see it?  Thank you Stampin' Up! for Washi Tape!! hee hee

Hints and Tips

Search for colors when looking for ideas - I know you might get hundreds of images, but sometimes it really helps to see how the colors look together.  

Don't always use your first stamp image - You will see that my Hello Honey background is quiet light, I didn't want a really strong background so I stamped first on a piece of scrap paper and used the second stamp as my image for my card.  Sometime you just gotta play until you like the look. 

Look forward to seeing you back soon and let me know if you need anything and the details for my SHOP are HERE!

Hugs Sam xx
