CYCI Challenge #133 A Color Challenge

It's Sunday again, and you know what that means, another challenge over at!  This week we have a color challenge.  I decided to use some of my new Fun Stampers Journey products to create this weeks card.

I started with a base card using whip cream.  I then added mats of Lemon Grass, Whip Cream and Lemon Drop.  I stamped the sentiment, leaves, and flower using Black Licorice ink.  Using the Just Because  Stamp Set, the flower was stamped on watercolor paper and then colored in with a watercolor marker.  The leaves were stamped on the whip cream paper and colored with an alcohol marker.  

I fussy cut the flower and leaves and mounted the flower onto foam squares to give it some dimension.  I then filled in the center of the flower with Journey Glaze and attached the sequins also using Journey Glaze.  

I was so pleased with how bright and cheery this card turned out using a minimal amount of supplies.  I love the colors!  After I had finished the card, I realized that I simply could have stamped the flower onto the Lemon Drop paper and the leaves on the Lemon Grass paper and wouldn't have had to do any coloring.  Oh well, hindsight is 20-20!  

Come on and show off your ceativity!  Join us for this week's challege at Can You Case It!
