FFF Color Challenge

Friday, December 4, 2009

A very happy Friday to you all!

I'm so glad you all enjoyed yesterday's hilarious conversation with my little one. :) She's quite the handful at times, but I wouldn't want it any other way. It makes her who she is. :) Funnily enough, the only thing that snaps her out of her nightmares at night is when I sing her a lullaby. Although, I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing anymore! LOL

It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday challenge and this week we have a color combo challenge for you! The colors you see in the swatch refer to SU's Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss (Or Old Olive), Baja Breeze and Whisper White. Now, normally I stay away from color challenges because I don't own any SU paper but the girls have said it's A-OK to use Bazzil or Prisma cardstock, just as long as you get keep to these color families! Phew!

I have to apologize for the bad photo. You see, a certain 'festive tree' is hogging all the daylight my big picture window brings into our teeny tiny apartment and combined with some overcast weather yesterday morning, this is about as good I could get it! Sorry! Anywho, I inked up the cute little Library Mouse that was just released from The Greeting Farm this week. He really is a strong little mouse isn't he?? Carrying all those books! I colored him with reinkers and an aquapainter brush on Strathmore Bristol Vellum. I am getting used to how to color on this stuff and very rarely use watercolor paper anymore. It absorbs the ink and water a whole lot more quicker than the watercolor paper does, so I just have to work a lot quicker and more deliberately. The sentiment is from Stamping Bella and I thought it just went perfectly with this image. I used this week's Mojo Sketch #115 for the layout.

Ok, now it's your turn to show us what you can do with this color combo!! Create your card and upload it to TGF gallery by Wednesday Dec. 9th for a chance to win some TGF stamps! Can't wait to see them all!

Got any plans for the weekend?? I'm hoping to get some custom cards finished night, then Saturday I want to complete some projects to show you next week, then Sunday is baking day! Syd and I are making banana bread and some cheese pepper bread for her teachers at school.

Have a great weekend!
