ID: Color ThrowDown - Color Challenge - Amen card
3.75"w x 6.25"h

Created: March 16, 2010

Just came across this beautiful blog - Wild Dragonfly Designs - and through it the Color Throwdown challenge blog and thought I'd give it a try. Used my latest Martha Stewart Punch Around set "Deco Fan" - love it. And a new stamp I just got from The Stamp Barn "CFRA036N".

Colored the stamp with Tombows in the Challenge colors, misted with water and stamped onto Arches 140# HP watercolor paper. Dried and cut around the design. Rubber stamped the quote (QuietfireDesign)with Blue Lagoon and clear embossed it.

Figured out the measurement I wanted for my card and what would work for the punch, then just punched away on the front only. Since I didn't use the same dimensions as suggested, I have about 1/8" error on the long side. Will alter my thinking for the next one. Adhered the artwork to the card.  Then added the "Thinking of You" which is one of  my calligraphic Peel Offs under the ECraftDesigns label. Added some left over background paper, which happened to use the same colors, under the cover to show through the scalloped edge.



NOTE: These and other Peel Offs are my calligraphic word sentiments on the "Elizabeth Craft Design" labels. There are 11 styles available at the moment with another 2 to be available end of 2009 or begin 2010. They come in four different colors (gold, silver, black, and white); "Thank You", "It's a Boy, It's a Girl", "You're Invited" Congratulations" "Happy Birthday, "Love"; "Friends", "Thinking of You", "Xmas Seasonal", "Xmas" & Happy Anniversary"
