Happy Friday Friends! Do you have anything special planned for the weekend? I have one very special little league game to go to (if it doesn't rain) and then I'm hoping to spend the rest of my time stamping away!
Today's Blogger's Challenge is a color one - Red, Teal, and Curry. For my card I used Riding Hood Red, Bermuda Bay, and then I ended up using So Saffron in the place of the Curry. I had to improvise, but I'm thrilled with the results. I started off with a digital image from Pink Cat Studio (Lily Riding Turtle) and I colored it up with my Copic markers (BG11, BG15, BG18, BG32, C1, E000, E01, R20, R27, R29, Y32, and Y35). The sentiment is also digital and it's FREE from Pink Cat Studio. The patterned paper is from the Quite Contrary line by My Mind's Eye. Luckily it had all of the colors from the color challenge in it. The other accents that I used on my card were Stampin' Up's Top Note Die, their So Saffron grosgrain ribbon, and I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder in my 'Bug.
The last time DH and I were at Barnes & Noble, I was able to pick up a copy of Paper Craft's Go-to Sketches. I started off using one of the sketches on this card, but my image was a little too large for that particular design, so I ended up going a different way. Which is usually what happens when I try to follow a sketch...lol! That's quite alright though, because the book is just filled with oodles and oodles of ideas and inspiration. I'm sure that I'll be able to get a sketch the right way sooner or later...lol!
For more inspiration with this wonderful color combination (I think that it's just perfect for Summer), please check out what the other Ladies from the Blogger's Challenge group have come up with. You can find their links here. Enjoy your Friday, and thanks so much for stopping by for a visit...Toodles! :D
