It's time for a another challenge over at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog. We have a new hostess for the new month of March. Jeanne has chosen trio of spring colors to start off the her duties.
As always, you may use whatever brand of inks, cardstock, markers, etc. you have
in your stash as long as they are similar to the Stampin' Up ones named above. You are free
to add neutrals but this trio of colors should be the only ones other ones used on your card.
I had a heck of a time trying to match up the Blushing Bride color from my Copic collection. I started with corals, then pinks and by the end I was adding in some light reds. It doesn't match 100% but the inspiration is evident.
I began by die cutting the sentiment from the lower portion of a piece of white cardstock. I offset the stamping of the amaryllis and colored it in with the myriad of Copics I mentioned earlier. I cut the panel down just a bit and adhered it onto a green card base, leaving just a hint of the green to show on the left side. (Make sure you save the bits and pieces like the inner portion of the A.) I finished off my card with a spattering of jewels.
I hope to see some of your cards in the gallery this week!

I like your peeking bloom, Jules! How did I miss that Wplus9 Amaryllis?ReplyDelete
Wonderful card - I love the bold sentiment! Pinks can be difficult to color match with Copics - you did a great job!ReplyDelete
You did a rather awesome approximation of the pink! And it's a beautiful card, too.ReplyDelete

Lovely card! I like that you die cut the letters from the white panel (instead of from green & then adding them) - adds great dimension!ReplyDelete
I like how the blossom accents the big, bold sentiment. Very neat!ReplyDelete
