Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 3
I'm back! Thank you to all of you who asked about me over the last few weeks! I'm finally getting back into the stamping swing of things! Boy, have I missed my stamping therapy sessions! My stamp room is coming together and I was actually able to make some projects at the end of last week....YEAH! I'll be posting some of them for you to see very soon, and I'll be sharing some photos of my "Stamping Stage Studio"...so stay tuned!
Here is a photo of the rose that I received on stage at Stampin' Up! Convention for my Rising Star award. This rose had quite a trip home, back to Illinois, where my dear daughter, Hannah, claimed it as her own. The colors in the photo are Certainly Celery, Kraft, Melon Mambo, and Very Vanilla.
To play along in the Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 2, simply create a papercrafted project using these Stampin' Up! colors (or similar shades from other companies), post it on your blog or other public gallery (Splitcoaststampers, Paper Craft Planet, etc.) using the keywords Curtain Call, link your posting back here, and then come back to enter your name and URL in the Mr. Linky box. You have until Sunday, September 13th at noon (CST) to enter your project.
I will once again be picking my FAVORITE(s) Curtain Call Color Challenge submission(s) that will be announced as the Curtain Call Show Stopper at the end of the week!
Those who are chosen as Show Stoppers will receive this award to post on their blog and share the exciting news! I will be picking more than one Show Stopper each week depending on the number of entries there are. There will be awards given out for every ten Curtain Call Color Challenge entries!
I used a new technique on this rosey card called Striped Brayering. I just watched the Workshop Wow DVD last night that I bought when I was at convention a few weeks ago. The Striped Brayering technique is one of the "wow" techniques featured on the DVD. It's super easy! All you do is run just the edge of your brayer along the ink pad(s) and apply to the cardstock in a striped fashion. Start with your light color first and then add more contrasting ones as desired.
