Blue, Green, and Brown

I love Fridays! I should amend that to say that I love Fridays when I'm not working the weekends! LOL! But, today I love Fridays because it's time for the weekly Blogger's Challenge! Today's challenge was a color challenge: to use blue, green and brown. My go-to color combo is Stampin' Up's Marina Mist, Pear Pizazz, and Soft Suede, so you'd think that this would have been easy, right? Wrong ... I made 3 cards before I was finally satisfied with my card LOL!



I have to say that I do indeed love this card! The base is Soft Suede, and then I matted the white textured image with Marina Mist. The stamp set for my image is the Level 2 hostess set Fast & Fabulous.

I used markers to color my stamp, then used my ink pads and blender pens to color in the flowers. The centers of the flowers were originally pearls, but since I was "pearlizing" my butterfly, I decided to "glitterize" my flowers. I used one of the fine cosmo glitter colors, probably the turquoise color. Do you know what happens when I get into glitter?! "Uh Mom, you have glitter on your cheeks." " You have glitter in your hair." "Uh Mom, what's that sparkly stuff all over your clothes?!" "Uh Mom, have you been playing in the glitter again?!" Yep, that's what I'll be hearing for the next 12 hours. It doesn't even come off in the shower!! LOL!

Here's a closeup picture of my card:


Stamps: Fast and Fabulous (Level 2 Hostess)
Ink: markers: Marina Mist, Soft Suede, Pear Pizazz
Accessories: Finial Press Textured Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, silver brads, Eyelet Border Punch, Turquoise Fine Cosmo Glitter with glue pen, Marina Mist 5/8" Satin Ribbon (I used the Bow-Easy that my sister generously hooked me up with!), Basic Pearls.
