Color Challenge Tuesday

Ugh. What a horrible game last night. And that's all I'm going to say about that.


On to the stamping (which is what you're here for, right?): today's color challenge on SCS was wild wasabi, blue bayou, and barely banana. I didn't have much motivation, so I kept it pretty simple.

I cut 1-1/2" squares, 2 each of bayou and wasabi, then stamped the backgrounds (Looks Like Spring) on them with their respective ink colors. I turned them over and taped them together so it was easier to adhere it to it's banana base. I stamped the flower in versamark on a banana scrap, clear embossed it, added a wasabi 1/2" circle and a button from the rich regals. I popped the flower on dimensionals and put it on the square base. I also used dimensionals to adhere that whole panel to the bayou base, AFTER I placed the wasabi ribbon across the card! Then I tied the knot, stamped the words in versamark, clear embossed, and added the brads.

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: stamps - Big Blooms, Looks Like Spring, Paper Tray (pti) paper - blue bayou, wild wasabi, barely banana ink - blue bayou, wild wasabi, versamark acc - clear EP, 1/2" circle punch, RR button, SS brads, wasabi grosgrain, dimensionals
