Blogger Challenge


New week, new challenge, much easier for me this week. This week it is a color challenge, Blue Bayou, Real Red and River Rock, white is acceptable if we need it. I am a true lover of River Rock, I really, really wish it was going to stay in forever. It's kind of a green/grey...very smooth cardstock and I like to use it for the color as well as techniques. It goes really well with vintage. I was pretty skeptical about these colors, but once I put them together, I am very pleased with my card. Stamp is from Hearts in Touch, Liberty Sheet....don't you just love it. I colored the flag with my watercolor brush, embossed the stars before punching them, and added a layer of DSP. Fun challenge! hugs.. P.S. Blog Candy 1 post down...**hint hint***
