This week, we have a fantastic color challenge for you by our very talented and sweet Dana Gustafson.
Aren't these fantastic colors? I just thought Christmas and a sort of shabby chic look. These are Papertrey Ink colors, but you don't have to use them...they are just for reference. Here's what I came up with. I just bought this Snow Angel stamp by Serendipity Stamps from my LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff, last weekend, and this card has been swirling around in my head all week. I stamped the image in Memento tuxedo black on Vintage Cream cardstock. I initially thought I was going to color the snowman a light brown color, but then decided on this great aqua color. I liked it much better! I added star dust stickles to pretty much everything on him...I just love that stuff! The plaid dp is Basic Grey's new Eskimo Kisses. (It has some pink in it in honor of Breast Cancer month!) The red dp is from SU's new Christmas Cocoa (it's in the Holiday Mini catalog). I used some Aqua Mist satin swiss dot ribbon by PTI. Lastly, I added some red glitter dots. I followed the SCS sketch challenge from last week.Want to see more? Here are links to the Just Us Girls DT that you can visit. Please leave some love for their hard work.
So what do you think you can do with these colors? We'd love to see! If you play, please post your direct link to the Just Us Girls blog so we can see them! If you post to an online gallery, please use the keyword JUGS3. Dana has thrown in some blog candy for a winner, too! She made these amazing flowers on her card and is offering a bag full of them! Thanks, Dana!
