Better Late...Color Challenge

I always love Kristina's color challenges but never manage to get one done. But I actually did it yesterday. You can follow that link for this weeks details and her cool graphic. The colors are teal, sky blue, pumpkin, green galore and white. I also got some inspiration from Julee, who inked and debossed her Cuttlebug folder, and Tori, who makes those gorgeous Spellbinder's flowers. I stamped the snail (Inkadinkado) using Memento black on PTI white. After coloring with Copics, I over stamped the CHF Lined Paper Backgrounder with Soft Sky ink. I separated the sentiment into two lines to stamp on a small Labels I die cut from Spellbinders. I actually used only orange ink to sponge the large flower, because the pumpkin pie looked so brownish when I tried it. I thought this matched the paper better. And since I took the pictures, I folded up all of the flower petals for a little more dimension. Much better. In case you give them a try yourself.
Stamps- Happy Belated Birthday (Inkadinkado)
Paper- green galore, taken with teal, pumpkin pie, sky blue, (SU), white (PTI and GP)
Ink- soft sky, teal, green galore, only orange, pumpkin (SU), tuxedo black (memento)
Accessories- flower creations, labels 1 (spellbinders), Copics, SEI brad, CB D'vine swirls, white gel pen, dimensionals
