Color Challenge




Gina K. Designs' Stamp Sets

Happy Camper
(Illustrator: Theresa Momber)

Life is Good
(Illustrator: Theresa Momber)



GKD Cardstock: white, fresh asparagus, & kraft (in place of sand)

I tried to make a part of a bird flying off/on the edge of the cardstock on the left by the twine. I used Rupa Shevde's Spring has Sprung for that. It doesn't show much and wasn't to scale which is why I added the twine where I did.Live and learn!


Other

Ink Pads: Black Memento, SU garden green & bashful blue
SU Markers: basic black & basic gray
Copic Markers: W-3 warm gray, W-5 warm gray, YG67 moss
Accessories: twine, brads, pop-up dots, handmade cloud template
