BC - Color Challenge and a Catch Up Challenge

Happy Friday! - It's time for the Blogger Challenge over on Lisa's Blog (Splendiforous Creations).  I missed last weeks challenge and was a bit bummed because the theme was, By The Seashore and I love the ocean and have several beach themed stamp sets that I could have used.  Time just got away from me and I never got a card made for the challenge.  I thought well maybe I could make it up with this weeks theme and then I checked and it was a color challenge, Red, Black and White (or Vanilla) and well I thought how on earth could I pull off a By the Seashore card with those colors....Well here is what I came up with:

So what do you think, did I pull it off or not?
I used this sketch: Roughly changing the bottom portion just a little since I couldn't put a "wave" upside down!
Details:  Card Stock: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Stamps:  Amuse Studio: Life's A Breeze
Ink: Real Red, Memento Tuxedo Black and a Copic Marker (R29)
Punch: Fiskars
Nestabilitie Dies
Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug)
Paper Piercing Tool and Distressing Tool.

So now why don't you join in on the fun and show us your work.


  1. You totally pulled it off. It's adorable. I love the textured circles on the red layer. Very nice.

  2. You definitely pulled it off perfectly. Love those little crabs on the bottom and the chair is perfect.

  3. I think you pulled it off, fun card. Great idea to combine the two/three challenges.

  4. You pulled it off brilliantly, Ida! I love the punch that you used...reminds me of waves! The little crabs are a great addition too! Have a Happy Weekend! :D
