Sketch and Color

This simple little card takes in three challenges.

Here are the challenges:

Freshly Made Sketches:  A sketch from Jen Mitchell      

Shopping Our Stash:  Use and link to any sketch.  I really dug into my stash for the stamp set.  I've had it for years and I don't think I've ever inked it.  It's about time!

Color Challenge at SCS:  This weeks colors plus neutrals of choice
Regal Rose
Bravo Burgundy
Summer Starfruit
    Dessert option is to use metal.  I skipped dessert this time.

All Supplies are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  In Full Bloom, So Happy for You (both retired)
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Markers (Regal Rose, Bravo Burgundy,  Summer Starfruit)
Paper:  Confetti White (retired), Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White
Other:  Blender Pen, Scallop Trim Border Punch

I stamped the design with Jet Black StazOn and colored the flowers with markers then blended the petals.  When you blend Regal Rose and Bravo Burgundy it resembles Rich Razzleberry which is one of my favorite colors.

I hope y'all have a great weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you come back soon.

I love the speckles on your stamped banner echoing the speckles on your card stock. Lovely colours together. x

Very pretty Bonnie! The way you colored the flowers reminds me of our fireweed right now, its all bloomed out and the stems have turned their fall red and yellow colors!

Cynthia said...

Super cute card, Bonnie! Love the colors and the stamped images too. That's such a fun layout! Oh, and PS: I sent you an email...I hope you got it. Sometimes AOL is a bit wonky. ;-)

It's simple but deep. Can you be both those things? You've added depth with the solid side and the opposite scallop side. (Make my side fries.) Those are perfect colors with that image!!
