Blogger's Challenge April 17, 2009

The Blogger's Challenge this week was a Color Challenge. When I saw the Always Artichoke, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, and Sahara Sand together, I thought of the Baroque Motifs set right away! To make the pearl a sage color, I colored it with a Sage Shadow marker, dipped it in clear embossing powder, and heated it. Then I repeated that step to make the sage color a little darker. I roughed up the edges of the Sage Shadow card stock and used Stampin' Dimensionals to make some contrast between the 2 Sage Shadow card stock pieces.



Here's what I used:
stamps: Baroque Motifs, Warm Words
card stock: Always Artichoke, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand
ink: Always Artichoke classic ink pad, Sage Shadow marker
accessories: Color Spritzer tool, word window punch, ticket corner punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, mini glue dots, Pretties Kit, clear embossing powder, heat tool
