A Color Challenge (Pink, Blue, and Brown)

GLUE ARTS WINNERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!!!  See the Glue Arts Blog to see if you are a lucky winner from this weekend's blog hop.

For today's crafty business, I am bringing you a layout that I made for a contest, because I can't resist a good contest.  Scrap That! is having a color contest, entries due Wednesday, to use colors inspired by their current kit.  Since I love love love this color combo, I decided to play along!


I just watched a SHIMMERZ video tutorial by Bethany Kartchner (see it here) on using their paints and a credit card to add color to your background paper.  I was so inspired to try this, that I got out my paints, and began crafting.  I have 2 colors of Shimmerz Pearlz and they happen to be pink and blue, so perfect for this challenge.  The brown you see there is a swipe of an ink pad.


So when I got some stamps from UNITY Stamp Co., there was a BIG bird (Free to Be Set).  Here it is stamped with blue and brown ink.  The stamp You and Me is from (Lovely Bits and Baubles Set).


This BIG bird cage (Free to Be Set) calls my name!  I am drawn to using it for some reason.  "So Sophie" was on the tag of a MME paper, so I used it, considering, Sophie is my subject!


Again, here is that film ribbon by Tim Holtz.  Love that product, it's quickly getting used up!  The measuring tape is an oldie but a goodie from 7 Gypsies.


And here are some more Unity Stamps (flowers).

Happy crafting!
