Here for You

Hello and welcome to another Center Stage Spotlight Alumni blog hop......whew, that is a mouthful! This time we have a color challenge for you.  We were to create a card or project using the following color combo:

  • White or Ivory
  • Brown
  • Light Blue (Little Boy Blue, Ocean Mist, or Turquoise Sea)
  • Yellow (Lemon Drop, Sweet Corn, or Wild Dandelion)
 You should have arrived at my blog from Lori McAree's awesome blog, but if you didn't you can go back to StampTV and start from the beginning.

For my card I chose to use:  Ivory, Brown, Ocean Mist and Sweet Corn. 

The stamps I used are from the GKD Lean on Me and Enjoy the Sunshine sets.  I toned down the Ocean Mist layer with a little bit of Tea Dye Distress ink to help it match the tone of the Sweet Corn cardstock. Isn't it awesome that we can do that with just a little bit of ink?   I am going to send you on your way now to Miesje Flach's blogaroonie so you can check out her amazing creation using these colors. 

Recipe:
Stamps:  Lean on Me, Enjoy the Sunshine-GKD
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa, Tea Dye Distress
Paper:  PL Ivory, Ocean Mist, Sweet Corn-GKD, K & Co. scrap from stash
Extras:  Ribbon, Flowers, Nesties, EK Edge Punch
