October 5,2016 - Color Challenge The House that Stamps Built


 

This week over at The House that Stamps Built is our monthly color challenge.  The colors were turquoise, orange, and violet, and despite the fact that my middle color looks  more yellow than orange it is orange in real life.  I used stamps from REPEAT IMPRESSIONS . these darling little dragon flies come in large and small - I used the small dragonfly 102F and the vertical sentiment Happy  Birthday 6104J.  I had made a birthday card in July for DD using the same watercolor brush technique and a single image and I really like the way it turned out.  I have a wide water brush that I use for applying the brush strokes.  The Happy Birthday was stamped on black and embossed in white and then I finished it off with a black scallop edge.  Had to have a few sparkles and sequins to finish the card. 

Hoping you will create a  card using this sketch as your inspiration over at The House that Stamps Built.  You don't have to use a REPEAT IMPRESSIONS stamp but if you do you will an additional entry in the random drawing drawing for a a $25  REPEAT IMPRESSIONS gift certificate.  HINT:  Take a look over on my side bar and you will see a 10% discount on REPEAT IMPRESSIONS STAMPS.  We would love to see your creation. 
Now go take a peek at what our Design Team teammates have created for this weeks challenge.

Beautiful!! Love how summery these colors look on your card; and the charm is the perfect finishing touch!

Love those little dragonflies. In fact, my personalized stamp that I put on the back of all my cards has a little dragonfly on it. This is a neat way to use three very different colors that don't always seem like they belong together.
