Say it in…Raspberry, Olive and Orange

Posted by on August 12, 2011 in Annabelle Stamps | 10 comments

Hi ya,

It’s time for another challenge over at the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog where the challenge this week is to use the colours Raspberry, Olive and Orange. We would love you to play along with us…go on, you know you really want to! Each week’s winner will receive a blinkie and a special little something from the store.

My card for this challenge is very CAS…but it does use a very cute little butterfly from the newly released Whimsy Flowers stamp set. I wanted this little guy to take centre stage.

I coloured in the butterflies with prismacolor pencils (very heavily) and them covered them with glossy accents. The sentiment is from another newly released set called Dotted Flowers.

And while I was at it, I made another card with the same colours, this time using a little flower from the Whimsy Flowers set and the sentiment from the Squared Posies set.

I am loving the look of piercing at the moment as it adds another simple element to the card.

Why not check out what the rest of the DT have created with this colour combo and leave them some love!
