Marjorie's Color Challenge #12...


Good Morning!!! It felt so great to sleep in...I totally needed that rest!!! :D
Well just as I promised here is the card I did for Marjorie's Color Challenge #12. This color challenge was a real challenge for me!!! I knew what stamps I wanted to use, but wasn't sure it was gonna come out right. Anyway the colors used were Crystal Blue, Orchid Bouquet, Citrus Leaf, & Pink Carnation.

My base is a 5" x 10" piece of White Daisy CS folded in half. I then cute a 5" x 5" piece of Crystal Blue to to adhere to my CS, but not before running it through my Cuttlebug using the Spots & Dots Folder. My next step was to cut a 2.25" x 5" piece of Orchid Bouquet CS and then a 2" x 5" piece of Citrus Leaf Textured CS. I adhered the Citrus Leaf TCS on top of the Orchid Bouquet and then took out my paper piercer and pierced the top and bottom of both pieces. Now on to my image. I stamped this cute Elephant (from CTMH's new Stamp of the Month "Life's a Jungle") in Brilliance Graphite Black Ink onto a piece of White Daisy CS. I then colored him with my pencils and punched him out with my Mega Circle Punch. I then cut out a circle of Pink Carnation CS with my Coluzzle to matte the Elephant. Next I sanded and pierced the edge of the circle. My next step was to stamp the sentiment. I stamped it in BGB Ink onto a piece of White Daisy CS and then matted it on top of some Citrus Leaf TCS. I pierced the bottom right corner and then added some flowers and a white brad to the side of the sentiment. I also added flowers to my circle. I think this Elephant is too cute!!! Thanks Marjorie for challenge!!! :D
