Splitcoast challenge



Yesterday at SCS they had these colors for their color challenge. Certainly celery, pumpkin pie, and orchid opulence. I decided to play along. I used my white papertrey cardstock as a base. At the bottom I stamped my inky antics ric rac stamp in pumpkin and then added celery polka dot ribbon. The next layer is celery run through my paisley cuttlebug folder.I used my white signo gel pen to highlight areas and then stamped a white craft ink polka dot here and there between the paisley's. I used stardust stickles to add glitz to the paisley's. I stitched around the edges with my sewing machine. On the right side of this layer is scallops cut with my create-a-cut and then dots added with the signo gel pen. The next layer is pumpkin pie textured cs layered with black that has been distressed. I used my paper piercer to pierce around the edges and then used a stamp from my papertrey borders and corners in white craft ink. Stickles added glitz to the little star. I used my nestabilites dies to cut the black scallop and the layer with the cute little monkey. The monkey is from Monkey Love and is a C.C.Designs stamp. I water colored with my Stampin'Up! ink pads. I added crystal effects to the limb and the leaves were done with a little dollar punch I got at Michael's forever ago. The "orange"atang (hee hee) has some stickles on him for some sparkle. I added pumpkin pie gross grain ribbon and some prima flowers with a amythyst brad covered in stickles in the center. I added a corner punched with my Stampin'Up! corner punch. I added some faux stitching and another little star medalion with the white craft ink.
