BC Wk 63 - You're A Blast

"Got Sunglasses!" -  For this weeks Blogger's Challenge Group we had a Color Challenge using some of the new "In-Colors" from Stampin'Up! -  The colors were:  Kiwi Kiss (Love it), Tangerine Tango (Another favorite), Pacific Point and Red Ridinghood Red - These are all gorgeous colors but they are quite bright so I was leary about pairing them together.  In the end I chose to just use a "tad" of the Ridinghood Red and Tangerine Tango and went with the bolder Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss as my main colors.
I chose to use the Rocket from Pun Fun as the starting point for my card.  Rockets can pretty much be any color you want and sine these were (out of this world) what better image to use then a rocket!  My card base is Pacific Point Blue and I layered that with Kiwi Kiss which I stamped with the Paisley Print BG (retired). It sort of reminded me of swirling things in outer space for some reason.  I added 3 punched stars in Pacific Point with Orange brads (Queen and Co.)  The focal image was watercolored with the color scheme and raised up with foam mounting tape.  I highlighted portions with Spice Glitter pens.  I stamped the sentiment in Palette Noir Black ink and mounted it onto a piece of Ridinghood Red card stock.  I couldn't resist using a piece of the Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon, it's just so pretty.  I added a small punched star (source unknown) and a mini orange brad. The main panel was also raised with foam mounting tape.
So there you have it a bright, cheerful card to send to someone that I find a real "blast" to be around. - Now don't forget to check out how the other members interpreted this color challenge by clicking on the Bloggers Challenge Icon on my sidebar.  -  Off to Bed for me now...5-4-3-2-1  Blast Off!!!
