Did you miss me?! I'm sorry I've been so quiet lately. Just trying to find my groove again after the holidays. I so enjoyed the time off from work and play that I prolonged it as long as I could! Do you blame me?! ;) But I'm back this week with avengence! I made a couple of cards yesterday and I can't wait to share them with you!
It's Monday and that means another There She Goes challenge! It's a color challenge this week and we're challenging you to use the colors....PINK, RED, GREY and BLACK.
The new Love Birds set has this adorable heart flower stamp in it and I love how whimsy it is! With my trusty reinkers and aquapainter brush, I colored in the flowers with SU's Pretty In Pink in the center, and a combination of Regal Rose and Ruby Red for outside. Old Olive was used for the leaves. Then I used a large scalloped circle nestie to cut the image out and I sponged the edges of it with Distress Inks Antique Linen and Tea Dye. The layout came from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #99. For the colors, I went straight for Basic Grey's Olivia paper pack. They were a perfect match for this challenge! The gorgeous sentiment is from the new Sentimental set that I haven't had a chance to play with until now.
Would you like to play along this week?? To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes the colors provided, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of the challenge post.
