First Design Team Challenge- A Color Challenge

Hello, All! My name is Beth Thomas and I am so... excited to be the first hostess for the Artful Inkables Design Team Challenge! Every other week Kristin and her DT will post a challenge with rotating themes onto the store blog. We would be so pleased to have you play along! If you should decide to join us, please, include ARTINK (all capitals) in the keywords when you upload on SCS. By having consistent keywords, we will be sure not to miss anyone's wonderful creations! If you dont wish to post your card to SCS, feel free to add a link to your creation in the comments section of this post.

Our first challenge will be a color challenge, which, between you and me is my favorite type! I truly have a passion for color and really like to "mix-it-up" sometimes! Sounds a bit scary?? Well, don't worry! I decided to go on the more conservative side today when I chose:

Sage Shadow
Blush Blossom
Close to Cocoa

Sound like fun? Be sure to check out the cards made by Kristin, her lovely card is attached to the end of this post, and the rest of the gals on their blogs:
On my card I used the beautiful, new set- Pressed Petals- with a stampin'-off technique. This technique is a quick and simple way to add dimension to your focal image and the beautiful silhouette images from Pressed Petals is perfect for it. I teamed my image with PP from the Baby 2 Bride collection from graphics 45. The colors in this pretty paper were the inspiration for today's challenge. The ribbon slide is cardstock layered on chipboard, then embellished. Both CS and chipboard were cut using a Sizzix die. Thanks for stopping by!

Take care, Beth

Beautiful cards!

Beth - the punched corner and pearls are a lovely addition - the color choices are wonderful!

Kristin - I love the background you created with the small bloom on this set - they look great colored in with the markers - and the ribbon is luscious!
