Real Soft Bayou

This was for last week's Color Challenge on SCS, Real Soft Bayou, to use Real Red, Soft Sky and Bayou Blue. When I first read that color combo, I didn't think it was going to work very well. Boy, was I surprised! I really like this combo! It's very different. I used the Sophia snow angel from the Snowflake Kisses set by Paper Pretties. This is my FAVORITE stamp in the set. I'll bet you couldn't tell by how much I use it, huh? I colored her in using ink pads and a blender pen.

Don't forget that Paper Pretties' next release party is tomorrow night, Monday, at 8pm CST! We're also giving away some Prettie Candy! To enter this contest, go surf around the Paper Pretties Boutique and send your top three favorite items to paperprettiesprizes@yahoo.com. One lucky winner will be picked at random and will receive a gift certificate for 40% off one regularly priced item! I hope you'll join us for the party! After all those sneak peeks last week, you'll be able to see a full card tomorrow, so check back! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Snowflake Kisses (Paper Pretties); Paper- Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Whisper White (SU), red (DCWV); Ink- Onyx Black, (Versafine), Real Red, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou (SU); Accessories- double stitched ribbon in Soft Sky, Nestabilities rectangle die (Spellbinders), white gel pen, blender pen, horizontal slot punch, ticket corner punch.

Great card, Charmaine. Like you, I'm surprised at this colour combo, but it's really lovely. Of course, your colouring had something to do with it. Love it.
