InStyle Colour Challenge

Hi All,

It's time for another colour challenge from InStyle Stamps! Happens every second Saturday of the month.  To see what the whole DT have done, head over to the ISS Blog!
This is a special challenge, because we are also participating in the Fussy and Fancy Friday Sketch Challenge! Woah, multi-tasking!  This sketch was designed by Mindy Baxter.

Since Mother's Day will be coming up soon, we got some very "motherly" images to work with! This one is called Christine and Baby Jayla - aren't they cute???  This image hasn't been released yet - it will be coming towards the end of April.

Here is the colour challenge from ISS:

And here is the sketch from Fussy and Fancy:

My card base is Crushed Curry.  Then, I have a layer of Whisper White, Basic Black, and Crushed Curry again, embossed with the Dots Cuttlebug folder - but only the top 3/4, or so.  I added Old Olive eyelets to each corner of this base layer.  Next, is a tall rectangle panel made from Whisper White, Basic Black, and Old Olive CS, which was embossed with the Mesh Cuttlebug folder.  Across that, I added a strip of Basic Black CS, matted with Whisper White, which was punched with the Martha Stewart fence edge punch.  I added 2 Old Olive buttons with Linen Thread to either side with Mini Glue Dots.

For the main panel, I ended up with a rectangle, instead of an oval, but tried to back it with an oval.  The back part of the panel is a Basic Black oval, mounted with a Bermuda Bay scallop oval.  Christine and Jayla were printed onto PTI White CS, and coloured in with Copics.  I added some sponging with Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Bermuda Bay inks, and added some doodling around the frame with a black marker.  I stamped the sentiment (SU) sideways onto the panel in Versamark, and embossed with black EP.  I topped the whole thing with a bow made from White Organdy ribbon and my Bow Easy...attached with a Mini Glue Dot.

I hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
