Yesterday's SCS color challenge


Yesterday at SCS they had a beautiful color challenge. I set to work, but my light wasn't good to get a pic until a few minutes ago. The challenge was to use Basic Gray, Soft Sky and Whisper White. I started with a soft sky base and added a matt behind the gray in white. The gray piece was run through my swiss dot cuttlebug folder and then brushed over with my white craft pad. I used my ticket corner punch on the corners. The other two layers were done with my square nestabilites dies. I used my signo white gel pen on the blue layer to add some dots. On the white layer I wanted to keep my colors soft and muted. I didn't want to stray much from the color challenge. I stamped the stamp from Long Time Friend in basic gray and then water colored with my aqua painter and ink in the lids of my stamp pads. I did use a touch of mellow moss and some creamy caramel. After all of this dried, I used my white signo gel pen to add dots and my stardust clear glitter pen to add some sparkle. I also added some crystal effects to the water can. You can't really see it in the picture, but trust me it is stunning. I added 3 rhinestone brads and paper pierced along the top and bottom with my Tim Holtz ruler. I love that thing. The brads are spaced exactly the same space apart and it was simple. I added a piece of basic gray taffeta ribbon at the bottom. I love these colors together and this piece is so simple and elegant. I hope you enjoy it.

I love thep paper piecing you've done across the top and bottom of the colored piece - adds such an elegant touch - I've gotta get this swiss dot folder - you are making the most beautiful cards with it! Can't wait to see what you are doing with your new stamps from All That Scraps too - have fun coloring and have a great weekend!!
