Color Throwdown & The New Challenge {Hello}

Good day crafty friends! As mentioned in my last post, I fell down my icy front steps yesterday morning on my way to my car. Today I am feeling it. I was shocked at how stiff and sore I am today! Not to mention the many big bruises that are popping up! I am OK but really achy as expected! Thank you so much for your kind words yesterday. I appreciated all the thoughtful comments.



Yesterday I also shared a card and gift bag set I made with the Zoo Babies Stampin' Up stamp set. I have had that set since the Fall and it is amazing to me that I have only inked it twice. My new mission as a blogger and crafter is to use ALL the many supplies I have hoarded collected over the years! It is craziness.



So I got to work and pulled out the Stampin' Up set called Fabulous Florets. I remember when I just HAD to have this set! I dusted it off and stamped the floret in black and fussy cut it out and then stamped the flowers in Memento Black Ink and cut them out. Then I coloured the flowers with my Copic Markers in Yellow & Deep Orange. I used this colours from the Color Throwdown and my sketch that I shared yesterday at The New Challenge. This time I scored the lines using my scorpal...easy peasy!



{Supplies Used}
Stamps: Fabulous Florets
Inks: Memento Black & Copics
Papers: Black & White
Extras: Snips, Scorpal

So sorry about your fall Lesley. I hope you feel better real soon.
Love your card, so classy and elegant. The gorgeous orange flower just pops with the touch of black and all white background.

So striking, Lesley! I adore that orange (it's my current fav for the longest time now)! Love the contrast so much! Sorry about your fall. I must say the trip from my driveway to my mail box is the deadliest and I always try to be VERY careful (really feeling the age when walking on ice!!). Take care now!

Absolutely striking & beautiful! Love this card, Lesley! I have that goal, too--use what I've got! It's killing me not to buy the new stuff I want, but enough is enough--LOL! So glad you weren't seriously hurt. Ice is so frightening & often you don't even realize how slippery it is. I've fallen twice on the deck in the past few years--above freezing so didn't think it would be frosty, but it was!

Yummy card, love those colours. Hope you mend fast, nothing like hitting the ground unexpectantly. ( think I made that word up). Having never experienced snow or ice on the ground I have to say how lucky I am as I have a terrible habit of tripping over my own shadow so imagine if I lived in a snowy or icy environment. Bit of light humor there, anyway look after yourself.

Fabulous! LOVE the pop of orange!! So sorry you fell down the step - always a concern in icy/snowy weather! Soak in a hot both with some epson salts - does wonders :)

Broni said...
