OCC..Color Challenge Thanks

Good Saturday Morning Peeps!

It is time for another new challenge over on the Our Creative Corner Blog. This week our challenge hostess is Lori Rider and she has a fun color challenge with a twist for us.

The twist: use at least three different punches, and one of the three has to be a border punch.

I used a retired SAB set called "Sweet Summer". I really love this set and these fun flowers. I stamped with black stazon onto watercolor paper. I stamped the flower heads onto some scrap watercolor paper and colored them in with my aqua painter using both razzleberry ink and regal rose ink. I colored the stem and leaves with soft suede ink. I cut out the flower heads and added them to the main image piece with some dimensionals.

I used my first punch to round the top corners of the image panel. I then decided to use two border punches to make my ruffled bottom pieces. I used the lace border and scallop border punches. I used baja breeze, regal rose, soft suede and rich razzleberry card stock.


I added some rich razzleberry satin ribbon to tie around and make a bow. The sentiment on here comes from the Afterthoughts hostess stamp set. I added alot of tiny silver pearls to the flowers.

I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC  design team creations! To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project over at Our Creative Corner so we can check it out.

Well that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Oh how pretty, Vicki! Love the layered punched colours at the bottom! You made soft suede look good. That's been a colour I had trouble with. Not sure why
