Colour Challenge Time

It has been ages since I have participated in one of Kristina's Colour Challenges so I was very pleased with myself to get this one done. We are up to number 37 and here is the inspiration:
The colours we are to use are Old Olive, Baja Breeze (I used Soft Sky as we don't have this colour yet), Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White.

Here is the card I made:

Image copyright Stampin' Up! 1990-2009

Stamp set: Embrace Life and Short and Sweet

Ink: Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky ink pads and Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Markers

Accessories: Dimensionals, Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon, Glossy white cardstock, Soft Sky re-inker and Baby wipes

I used the Soft Sky re-inker and a baby wipe to colour the glossy white cardstock a pale blue colour. I then stamped the image using choc chip ink several times randomly onto the cardstock and coloured it in using the fine tip of the markers. I stamped the same image using the Soft Sky ink onto the card base but only on the bottom half. I added some ribbon at the side and mounted it onto choc chip and then mounted it using dimensionals onto the Soft Sky card base. I then stamped the thankyou greeting using choc chip ink also.

The photo could have been better but I was in a hurry to post it before heading out. Hope you like it.



I really like how you have used that stamp set well done on colouring all those leaves :)
