Bloggers Challenge #69 – Color Challenge (Old Olive, Really Rust, Riding Hood Red)

This week's Bloggers Challenge was a color challenge using Old Olive, Really Rust, and Riding Hood Red.


I always have a lot of fun doing the color challenges…and decided to use one of my favorite Artistic Outpost stamp sets…


Stamps:  Serenity (Artistic Outpost)

Paper:  Old Olive, Really Rust, and Riding Hood Red (Stampin' Up!), Phoebe (Basic Grey)

Ink:  Palette Black Noir, Old Straw (Distress Ink), and Classic Really Rust (SU!), Encore Copper

Other "Stuff":  Grungeboard, sponge for antiquing card stock, Poppy self-adhesive rhinestones (Me and My Big Ideas), square and long rectangle Nestibilities

I used Really Rust ink to color the Grungeboard swirls, and then used a little Encore Copper ink on top of that.  I used SU! glue stick to adhere them to the card front. 

Today is the last day for Artistic Outpost's anniversary sale…be sure to visit their blog and leave a comment for the blog candy!

Thanks for looking…and have a wonderful weekend.  We'll be traveling to the other side of the state to spend the weekend with family…this is our yearly "Van Hal" get-together…we used to get together this weekend every year to celebrate my now deceased mother-in-law's birthday, and now we just make it a special day for all the siblings, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren to visit and share memories…it should be a lot of fun.
