So, if you noticed, yesterday's post was for a challenge that was last week, but I was ahead of the game for this weekend's color challenge. You can find all the necessary information -->HERE<-- Its the Clear Dollar Stamps Color Challenge over at Papercraft Planet. This is a great way to dust off those Clear Dollar Stamps you might have (although I'm sure yours aren't dusty).
The Stampin Up! color names are Bashful Blue, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, and White. Since I don't have SU! cardstock, I always have to substitute so I ended up using some American Crafts Designer Paper for my blue and chocolate, and then used Papertrey ink's (PTI) Pure Poppy and Chocolate for the rest of the accents - color is color no matter who makes it :)
I used one of my new EK Success border punches for the bottom border. I have to say that I really like these new punches. I also embossed my red center piece with my cuttlebug bird folder for some additional interest, added some Close to my Heart pewter spirals ( I love pewter anything) and PTI Chocolate ribbon.
But, at the center of it is this great bird stamp from Song Bird Silhouettes. I used a Close to my Heart ink called Heavenly Blue and it matched up pretty well.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are happy and healthy today. Our family is hanging in there. I spent most of yesterday in bed - I would feel ok for a bit and then absolutely horrible later.
