Blogger's Challenge #157: Color Challenge

Lisa challenged us to use kiwi (green), blue and white for our colors this week.  I chose to switch to Old Olive for my green since it is close to kiwi and  I could use it for my upcoming displays and made a second one, though, cause I needed to send a very late thank you to a friend.  For my blues, I used a combo of Baja Breeze, Marina Mist and Pacific Point...a total sneak peek combination!

The images are also a sneak peek!  They are from a brand new level one hostess set called Because I Care. 

To create my image, I inked the entire image with my Versamark pad.  Then, I used the various colors mentioned to color the flower and leaves.  I stamped on my cardstock and added Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder and heated it.  Love the glossy look and the texture heat embossing gives!

The polka dotted card base is thanks to my Big Shot and the Polka Dot Impressions folder and the Thank You tag is from a group of Big Shot Sizzlets called Lots of Tags.

Thanks for looking and be sure to see what the other players did with this fab color combo!
