Challenge x3

It’s the end of another week and I’m winding down. Back to the grind tomorrow. The weatherman got it wrong today…instead of 85 and sunny it turned out to be 70 (maybe) and cool AND RAINY! It poured rain all night and a good portion of the morning. It was okay though because we had no plans to go out and I did get some new goodies in the mail over the weekend. Perfect day to hang in my craft room and play.  I did make a few cards including a few challenge cards.

I’ll start with a card for the Color Throwdown Challenge ctd439. This week’s colors are: Red, Orange, Purple and Yellow. The bouquet in the challenge photo is gorgeous!

This was one of the new stamp sets I got…it’s called Message in a Bottle from Create a Smile Stamps. Aren’t those little germs cute? I colored the image with Copics then fussy cut the bottle and covered it with SU! Crystal Effects. I used a memory box stencil to add some color before adhering the bottle with foam tape.

I used SU! markers to color in the letters. The MISTI makes it super easy to change the letter colors. I also used my MISTI to stamp the bottom half of the sentiment on a curve.
