This week, Silke is challenging us to use this Color Combo on a card or project - how easy is that??? We can't wait to see your ideas!!!

Please remember there is no time limit on our challenges - participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave us a comment linking to your card/project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC




Here's my project for this lovely colour challenge;


First, forgive me if I break my arm patting myself on the back, but I'm tickled with this punch border! I used my cornice border punch (martha stewart) on the white card stock. Then, I cut out 3 circles using a nestie die. I cut each of the circles in half and lined them up with the arches of the border punched pattern. I'll be using this again - love it!

I coloured Agnes Ketto (stamping bella) with prismacolour pencils and jazzed her wings with Diamond stickles. This card was just a whole lotta fun to do.

Please check out the samples by the Design team on the OCC blog, and leave some encouragement.

stamps; agnes ketto (stamping bella)
paper; origins (basic grey), tawny (prismatics), petty cash, brown, coconut swirl (bazzill)
ink; espresso adirondack (ranger)
accessories; circle nesties (spellbinders), ribbon (SU!), cornice border punch (martha stewart), diamond, tiara stickles (ranger), clear rhinestones (heidi swapp)

Ooh, so beautiful! I think your border is simply awesome. You are so clever! Your Ketto image is fabulously colored and I love the glitter. And I think I ordered that DP and will hopefully have it soon. Gorgeous!

Great card! those colours go wonderfully together and I too like what you did with the scalloped edges.

I was admiring that border too Loretta! BEAUTIFUL card!!!!!

Stamping Becky said...

Your coloring is great! I have to agree with you about the border. The points of the white border lines up perfectly on the dip of the green "scallops". I really like the dp you've chosen for this project too.
