Color Throwdown Challenge #100
JFF is sponsoring the 100th Color Throwdown Challenge and will be giving away a $25 gift certificate. To enter to win this and other fabulous prizes go to Color Throwdown's blog, where prizes are listed as well as the link for everyone to upload their own creations to participate in the challenge.
Now, in case you didn't know...the above colors are from Stampin' Up. Unfortunately, I do not have those paper colors; but I was able to find solid colors from Bazzill's cardstock and printed paper from Basic Grey's Euphoria line at Michaels, that I think match very well. All Just For Fun stamps used are from the Collage Unmounted Set UMS7002.
So, to start.....card is 6x6 (Bazzill) "Ruby Slipper," background stripes are (Basic Grey) "Bless," and I sticthed all around the edges. I actually dragged my sewing machine out and sewed on my card!!! I was so stressed...I cannot sew straight and I was scarred to death of messing up my paper; if I would've sewed any slower I think I would've been doing it by hand. :0
Next, I used my (Spellbinders) S5-002 Labels 10 to cut out both (B) Ruby Slipper, which I used (Stampin Up) perfect polka dot embossing folder on, and (BG) "Delirium," which I stamped (Just For Fun) "dress form" stamp onto, using (Memento) Tuxedo Black ink.
The (JFF) "hand" is stamped onto (BG) "Fields" paper and cut out. The (JFF) "Tag" is stamped onto (B) "Vibrant Blue" and cut out as well as stamped again with (JFF) "Altered."
All edges are chalked with (Color Box) Chestnut Roan. Finishing touches are: lace, ribbon, button, hemp & pearls...all from my stash of goodies that I have aquired, but have no idea where they are from! :)
Hope you like the card and will participate in the 100th Color Throwdown Challenge!!!
