Happy Friday evening!!!! Busy day here on my blog, huh???
Welcome to our first hop in Sept. for the CSS Alumni! If you're just wandering in, start back at the beginning at StampTV . If you're here from Miesje's blog than you're in the right spot.
I haven't had a chance to play along with the CSS alumni girls in awhile, so I figured this color challenge was the perfect time to jump back in.
Carolina challenged us to create a card using the colors, red, orange, brown and either white or ivory. I knew exactly what set I wanted to use for this challenge and set right to work creating this card to share with you today using Theresa's set Sending Sunshine.
I started by stamping the tree, swing and butterfly in Rich Cocoa. I then colored my images with Copic markers. I used a Versamarker and detail clear embossing powder to emboss the tree trunk and branches, swing and the butterfly. I created the grass and sunset using the airbrush Copic system. I masked off the grass and created the sky first, then reversed the mask and created the grass. I added some extra lowlights and grass tufts with Prismacolor Pencils blending with OMS. My cardbase and mat is Chocolate Chip Pure Luxury and the main image is stamped onto the heavy weight white Pure Luxury cardstock.
The next stop on the hop is the amazing Sue!!!!! Quick, hop over there and check out her amazing project.
See you there!
