It's a Challenge

I keep thinking that I need/want to particpate in more stamping challenges.  There are a lot of them and sometimes it is just the jump start I need when I'm feeling  uninspired or everything I make starts looking the same.  I stumbled upon this one Hand Stamped Sentiments and it was definitely a challenge for me.  The challenge was a color challenge and here's the colors: Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, and Pear Pizzaz.  Crushed Curry is not one of my go to colors but I decided to give it a try and this is what I came up with.

Stamps:  Fabulous Florets, Six-Sided Sampler
Ink: Early Espresso, Pear Pizzaz
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz
Punches: 1-3/8" circle 
Big Shot: Pretty Print folder
Extras: Early Espresso Taffeta ribbon(retired)

I am pretty  happy with how this turned out and really like how the Early Espresso ink looks stamped on the Crushed Curry card stock.   The firm foam ink pads is what makes it possible to have such complete coverage over the Curshed Curry card stock.

You know that since I made this card I have used Crushed Curry a little more.  I am a little less intimidated  by it and can see it will definitely be a great color to use  as we head into the fall.   

Do you participate in any stamping challenges?  If you do let me know your favorites, I would love to find a few more to participate in.
