Using My Colors!

Stampin' Royalty's challenge this week is a Color Challenge, and it was a challenge for me to use them! not so much that i had trouble with the colors, it was just cutting into my cardstock and patterned paper, and especially that fabulous button! I am kind of funny that way! i need to force myself to stop hoarding!! 

The colors are Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, and Summer Starfruit.  I had made a mask for the flower so i could sponge around it with the green. I VERY lightly sponged more of the blue on the flower just to give it a little color. I layered the butterfly, added a pearl and a button. this card was actually pretty easy to make,. but turned out really pretty, i think!

Ink - Gumball Green, Midnight Muse
Stamps - Bring on the Cake, Blooming with Kindness

For my Wonderful Mother

This is my sample card for this weeks Stampin' Royalty challenge! 
It's a picture Inspiration Challenge, and here is the image:

I really loved this picture, and there is so much you can draw inspiration from! the things that stood out most to me were the bird plate, and the cute picture frame. 
I stamped a Very Vanilla panel with the flower stamp in Riding Hood Red first, then ran it through the Tulip Frame embossing folder, then i used my Simply Scored to make the straight frame on the inside. after that, it was pretty easy...stamp the images in Soft Suede, then using my blender pens, i color them, cut them out, and sponge the edges lightly with Riding Hood Red. This card was really not that complicated, it just looks like it was! 


Cardstock - Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla
Ink - Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede
Stamps - Nature Walk, Elements of Style, Delightful Dozen
Accessories - Labels Collection Framelits, Paper Piercer,  Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Simply Scored, Pearls
