Friends Having Fun: Color Challenge #4

Hello! It’s the 5th of July and I am probably recuperating as you read this. My family and I had a duel house party, and I am predicting that it’s gonna be a little crazy- in a good way! And let me mention, there is a fabulous blog hop that I am in today with my girls from Smeared and Smudged and Simply Betty Stamps! So please click HERE to see that post!!!

It’s time for the FOURTH Color Challenge with Friends Having Fun. Can you believe it??? We’ve been doing this for 4 months already? Here are the colors I chose for us!

What do you think??? They are pretty, vintage tones. Not bright. So, here’s what I made…

FHF-#4-1

Using my brand spankin’ new “Pirate’s Life” stamp set from Bombshell Stamps, I made this card! How awesome is this Bombshell??? I love her, and her parrot! I colored her and her bird using only Distress Inks. Yup, I’ve been doing this quite a bit lately, because I just love the completed look. Here’s a close up.

FHF-#4-2

You can click on any of the images to see them bigger.

FHF-#4-3

The colors I used were: Weathered Wood, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, and Antique Linen. I stamped the images in Chestnut Roan from Color Box. I like how the brown gives the images a softer look, rather then a harsh black, which would have stood out too much here.

FHF-#4-4

I created the background with my Distress Inks as well. I used a few different stencils that I had laying around.

And if you go to Bombshell Stamps’ home page …guess what you’ll see??? THIS card! Yup! Because I am Ms. July (I CANNOT get tired of saying that!), I was able to feature one of my cards…and this is the one I chose! So please go take a peek! It’ll make me feel good! ;}

And, please show some love to the rest of the Kaleidoscope Krew! They made some killer projects that I just know will inspire you!!!
