This first challenge was a color challenge hosted by Design Team Member Beth. The colors to use are Blush Blossom, Sage Shadow and Close to Cocoa - a wonderfully calming color combo don't you think??!!
On this color challenge I used the newly released Arful INKable stamp set - Sunburst Dandies. I used Julee's MoJo sketch 46 for my design.
I hope you can see how I outlined the blooms with a sparkly Sakura gelly roll pen. It really shimmers IRL! And I added TONS of brads - I think this is the most I have EVER used on a card!
I cut the circles using my Nestability Circles and dry embossed the sentiment one. I stamped the sentiment in Close to Cocoa and the leaves in Sage Shadow - outlining these again with the gliter pen and adding brads.
And now - how can you join in??
1) Just make your card using the challenge colors (or something close if you don't have SU colors)
2) We'd love for you to use Artful INKable stamps but if you don't have any (yet!) use any stamps. And remember Kristin is offering 10% off all her stamp sets for the month of July!
3) Post your card on Split Coast Stampers using the code word ARTINK (all one word in CAPS)
4) If you don't post on Split Coast - just go to Kristin's blog and link your card to the challenge post!
We can't wait to see what you do with these colors!!
