Here is my color challenge card for this week on splitcoaststampers. It is CC90: blush blossom, true thyme, and cranberry crisp. Since I was short on time this week, I brought out my all-time favoritest set.....Roses in Winter. I just love this set. Especially with the rock and roll (where you ink it up in one color and then roll the edges around in another color) and smooshing (stamp your image and then smoosh it 1/4 turn in each direction for a smooshed, soft look) techniques. I am pretty sure I learned both of these from StamperSharon - one of my stamping favorites. I think it really softens the roses and makes the look. I stamped the sentiment a tad bit crooked, which will of course drive me nuts.


I tried the paisley stamped in blush blossom first, but it just wasn't working for me. It is very unlike me to stamp it in a dark color on light cardstock, but for some reason it just worked here. I am not thrilled with this card, but I really really wanted to use my new velvet ribbon from Starlitstudio ebay store.



Also, there is a way way awesome prize to be given away during CC100! We are getting closer, ladies! It is so unbelievably awesome too! I will be so jealous of whoever wins this awesome prize. Leigh O'Brien is designing it right now and I'll have some teaser pictures soon!



Ok, that's all for tonight.

Very pretty card...love those cards with RIW. I had never heard of the very technical "smoosh" method either ;) I will have to give that a try.
