My Weekend Color Challenge Card, Thank You Fairy Much!




Good Day Everyone! I havent gotten to play along with my CDS DT sisters in the color challenge in a very long time so I was detrmined to do something ths weeked. Besides I hadn't gotten the chance to ink up these little fairy's just released this month. They are called playful pixies and they go along with my Rosebud line at CDS. So when the baby was finally sleeping good I had two choices; I could clean and do laundry (which is what I NEEDED to do) or I could have some fun with my stamps....Gee, what to do? ;) I think the choice was pretty obvious! I was actually able to get this done in record time for a couple of reasons, (I knew I had to, like I said I was determined!), With it being a color challenge that part of the work was done for me and I didn't even have to think about my layout, basically I stole the sketch from my good friend Lisa (with her blessings of course!) who happens to be hosting the challenge this week! I had to tweak it just a bit to make adjustments for the stamp set I used but the basic idea was done for me. So thanks to Lisa's pretty color scheme and layout I was able to fly through this one! Also it's only 4 1/4x4 1/4 so it's a little smaller than what I usually do and so that helped too. To find out more about the color challenge click on the link to the right, we would LOVE to have you join! (this is one way Clear Dollar Stamps scouts out talent for our DT!) And to check out Lisa's color challenge card or the one I used for my layout click Lisa Lara in my DT list in the sidebar!

AMAZZZZZING! I love the two different embossed backgrounds and how you seperated them... among everything else of course :)

Chris said...

Those two embossed areas (with the inking just right!) are perfect for this card. Makes me just smile, it's so cute!

This is just beautiful. I do believe Mama needed to get inky today! The laundry will wait! LOL! You make such lovely cards.

Love your sunrise flower, Shawne! What a cute, cute card.

Lisa Lara said...

Hi Shawne. So happy you played. I just love your layout. I love just the little bit of sponging on your embossed panels. That's awesome. Your sweet fairy is sooooooo cute with your coloring. I love how you did your sentiment. Wow. I love listening to Adele while I type. I love also how you take multiple pictures so we can see all angles.

Your "pixies" are very cute, like what you're doing with your NEW line! Don't KNOW how you find the time with all those little girls in your house! You have inspired ME to collaborate with a friend that can truly draw to develop our line of stamps!...we'll see!
