Mark 16:16 Color and Sketch Challenge



I was totally honored this week when Betty Wright, aka gbedwright, asked if I would make a sample card for this week's color challenge at Splitcoast!! (Betty was formerly on the ODBD Design Team AND served a term on the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen! Betty is outrageously talented!!!) And what great colors she chose this week too.....Chocolate Chip, Pretty In Pink, Rich Razzleberry, with the dessert option of houndstooth. Thank goodness for the Houndstooth Cuttlebug embossing folder or I would have to go to bed with no dessert!!! I chose to use two new sets from Our Daily Bread designs...the scripture is from "Baptism and Confirmation Verses" and the gorgeous scene is from "Confirmation". The designer paper, which was Cuttlebug'd, is Basic Grey "Bittersweet", which was a perfect match for Pretty In Pink. After embossing it, I lightly sponged it with Chocolate Chip...heavier on the edges. The image and sentiment panels were cut and embossed with Spellbinders Labels 8, then I sponged all three colors with Pretty in Pink toward the center, then Razzleberry, then Chocolate Chip around the outside. The image was stamped in Stazon Jet Black, colored with markers, cut out with scissors and exacto knife, and popped up on foam tap for dimension. Added paper piercing, satin ribbon, Basic Grey Opaline Pearls, and Pearl Glimmer Mist to finish!

I have used this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge 121 for this card as well. It was perfect for the sets I wanted to use for the color challenge. I have just recently came out of my cave and discovered the Mojo sketches...wow, I love 'em!! I know, where have I been, right?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a blessed week!!!
