Rasberry Suite Color Challenge #21 & 2S4Y #43

One of my favorite crafters to follow is Dawn McVey, so I thought I would give her color challenge a try! Besides, what else is there to do in the evenings when its 2 degrees outside with blustery winds and snow.

I also decided to kill two birds with one stone and combined the color challenge with my interpretation of this weeks 2Sketches4U sketch.

Here's what I pulled together with this awesome color combo, of course using stamps from my favorite stamps company - PTI!

The photo doesn't do the colors in this card justice. I colored in the polka dots and they are much more muted than what shows up in the photo. I also stamped on flower image with Versamark on the Lemon Tart cardstock. Thanks Dawn for the inspiration!

  • Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Polka Dot Basics, Big Bold Wishes, Friends Til The End)
  • Ink: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist), CTMH (Chocolate), Versamark, Copic Markers
  • Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist), Neenah (Brown, Ivory)
  • Other: Papertrey Ink Ribbon (Aqua Mist), Hero Arts Glitter
