CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Hi everyone!!! Today the Stamp TV Center Stage Alumni are joining together to share a color challenge that Carolina Buchting presented us with. We have decided to get together now and then and just challenge ourselves to our own little hops to continue sharing ideas and designs as we go. If you arrived here by way of Shannon Bracken's blog, you are on the right path.  If not... skip back and start from the beginning.  I'm sure you don't want to miss a single creation from our team! *smile*

Carolina's first challenge to us was to use, Kraft or Tan Leather, Green (Creme de Menthe, Grass Green, Fresh Asparagus, or Green Apple) and White.

For my card I used Gina K's, Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight, Creme de Menthe for my base.  I next layered on top a piece of Kraft card stock.  I began with Gina's  "Botanicals" wording stamp for my background.  I stamped it in Vivid Ink, "Tuscan Tan" and hen stamped my flower image in Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then sponged around the image with some Memento, "New Sprout" ink and around the edges with Memento "Desert Sand".

Next I colored the butterfly from the Stamp TV Kit, "Enjoy the Sunshine" and colored it with my Copic markers.  My sentiment came from the same Stamp TV Kit.

I used my oval Nestabilities to put my butterfly on and shaved off the edges to place it on the corner. 

Next... head on over to StampTV to complete your hop.  Thanks for joining us tonight!!

Stay tuned for more Hop Challenges from the Stamp TV Center Stage Alumni!!
