February Color Challenge

It's color challenge day over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration! We hope that our colors and designs will inkspire you. Check out everyone's projects, go create a project of your own, and then link your blog up with ours over at SSINK!

Here are the colors that we're working with today:

Here's my creation:

The base is Pink Pirouette. I measured the stamps that I wanted to use from Countless Sayings 2 so that my cardstock was just slightly larger. The top part of the greeting is 2-1/4" x 1-3/4". The Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi pieces are the same size. I laid the "you," "make," and "me" on the cardstock where I wanted them, and then pushed the block down on top of them. This way they were already lined up and saved some me inking, stamping, and cleaning time. The Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi for the "Happy" measure 3-3/4" x 1-1/4".

I used the Secret Garden Framelits to cut out the leaves and stamped flower. I trimmed the excess off the stem of the leaves so that it wasn't sticking out from both sides of the flower. The flower image was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla cardstock. I then colored the petals with a Blender Pen and Pink Pirouette Ink; and the center with the Blender Pen and Wild Wasabi ink. Here is a closer picture for a little more detail.
