Blogger's Challenge #44: Color Challenge


I'm actually writing this post on Tuesday night and should actually be packing for the trip that I'll be on when you are actually reading this!

Our challenge was a color challenge this week using So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Brocade Blue and Chocolate chip. I used these colors although my picture is HORRIBLE and showing the blue as some sort of purple. If I weren't supposed to be packing, I'd not post this card and make a new one but....

I used versamark to adhere clear embossing powder a total of three times! To make the cross layer, I used a piece of watercolor paper, wet it down and added the saffron, blue and celery. Then, dried it with my heat tool and stamped the cross atop it.

Thanks for looking and I promise a better offering next week! Be sure to check out some real art and see what the others were up to!

Happy stamping!
