Color Chef Challenge #4
This is my card for this week's Color Chef Challenge over at KJ's Stamp Pad. The colors to use were Black, Watermelon, Bubblegum, Baby Pink and White Daisy. When I started out making this card I had this idea that I wanted my random stamped images to be glossy, and I would use versamark and ink together. I think in the end it altered the color just a bit, especially the watermelon. I think I will read up on this technique just a bit and see what I was doing wrong.
I also used a clear acrylic flower in the center of the knot that doesn't show up all the well in the picture.
Supplies from CTMH-Black CS, White Daisy CS, Baby Pink CS, Bubblegum CS, Black ink, Bubblegum ink, Watermelon ink, Baby pink ink, Black staz on ink, Clear acrylic flower, black brads, corner rounder Floral charm stamp set, Friendship blessing stamp set
Other-Black ribbon, clear embossing powder, crop-0-dile
I also wanted to take a quick second to tell you about something very exciting starting onThursday and Friday. Of course the release of the new Summer 2009 Close to my Heart Catalog on Friday Morning, but in addition the 1st ever CTMH Blog Hop!! A really sweet consultant Erin Burney has organized the whole thing and the fun will start at Midnight(Pacific Time) on Thursday and will feature all new projects for you to see using all new products from the new Catalog. I will have a really cute project posted for the event. (Of course no matter how hard I try, I wont be able to stay awake till midnight, but I will catch all the fun on Friday morning!)
What is a Blog Hop? Over 40 consultants will have their blogs linked together, and all you have to do is "hop" from one blog to the next. At the end of each of the post you will be given a link to go to the next blog.
All the fun will start at Erin's Blog and go from there.
Not to worry I will give you directions on where to start or where to go to next! It's going to be so much fun!
