Time for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #503. This week it is a Color Challenge. Can you guess the colors?
If you guessed Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide and Crumb Cake, you are correct!
These colors are prominently featured in the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper aka DSP. Love the plaids, stripes and patterns especially those glasses! When I saw the glasses I knew I wanted to use the paper with the sentiment from the Bird Banter stamp set. I have had so much fun with those fun birds and their sentiments.
I stamped the bird in Tranquil Tide ink and used a blender pen to do a little shading. The beak and shadow was colored in using Crumb Cake ink and the head feathers with Night of Navy ink. Very quick and easy to do.
I wanted to tie in the Crumb Cake color a little more so I finished it off with the Crumb Cake 3/8" Classic Weave ribbon. This ribbon is one of my favorites. It is soft, easy to tie, and makes great bows.
Are you wondering how I got that border around the Lots of Label framelit? I used the #4 die ( #1 being the smallest label). I cut one out of Very Vanilla and another out of Tranquil Tide. I cut the Tranquil Tide label in half and used it to create the layer around the top and bottom of the Very Vanilla label.
Cut a strip of Tranquil Tide cs. The width doesn't matter, I cut mine around 1/2" wide. The length of the strip needs to be at least twice as long as the length of the label. Attach the strip to the side of the label and cut the length matching up with top layer. Repeat on the other side.
I hope you will join in the Challenge. Be sure to go to the Create with Connie and Mary blog and check out what the other members of the design team created.
