Vivid Thanks

Hi there and welcome back!

This week's Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers is bright and beautiful!  Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay are Barbara's choice for this week and I LOVE them together.  "Dessert" is using a punch or die cut.  I chose to use a 2 1/2" circle punch.

Again the wonderful sketch at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge provided the basis for my card design.

Because I still have Blendability Markers in those colors (Stampin' Up! has discontinued them due to quality issues), I chose the Vivid Vases stamp so I could use the markers.  With the vases as the star of the show, I knew I could keep the rest of the card very clean and simple.

Only the three vases in the middle of the five on the stamp were used, which meant I had to carefully use the edge of the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad to ink up the vases.  Those three were chosen because the two vases on each end had leaves and green is not part of the color challenge this week.

My Stampamajig was the must have tool to help me center the vases and the sentiment.  The sentiment is part of the wonderful new Cottage Greetings, which uses pretty and whimsical fonts for all its sentiments.

Well, thanks for dropping by!  I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.  The links above will take you to great inspiration and hopefully you can join in both challenges.  Have a great week!
