As You See It Color Challenge! 

I'll admit sometimes I find color challenges daunting, like oh my word I have to think and stamp without a layout daunting.  They make me stretch my imagination skills and let my creativity run wild within the color limits.  

I would of never put these colors together on my own but I do love the combo.  Check it out!

If you don't have these colors please use what you have similar, these are color from Stampin' Up, but I'm sure there are like colors out there.  I actually didn't end up using a lot of So Saffron in my card and since it was so light it hardly shows up.  

I used a SU! stamp set inked in Staz On on watercolor paper.  Next I colored it in with Stampin' Write markers in the color challenge colors, then I spritzed the whole thing with water.  I waited for the marker ink to spread and then dried the paper with my heat gun.  

Something about the classic easy to create and elegance in this card makes me swoon.  

Please play along with us this week at As You See It Challenge!  Can't wait to see what you create!

As You See It Challenge

Time for another challenge!  Are you ready??!!  I will admit I'm not in love with the card that I made for this week.  I tried my hand at making again, and well sometimes a card design is just not one you love.  The moral of this story is to finish it up anyway because a complete card is better than a never made card!  

The design is a great one though!  

 I'm excited to see what you all come up with and who knows maybe I'll revisit this great layout again when fresh new stamps arrive to my home!!  :)
