Sunday Stamps Color Challenge

Normally I like color challenges, but this one is certainly a big challenge!  Today's Sunday Stamps challenge is Red, Pink and Black.

Love the big stamp in the new photopolymer set, Another Thank You.
  • I embossed the large image in black o glossy cardstock (now retired, bah!). That is a normal size (A2) card and love how big it is!
  • I used my daubers to run Melon Mambo and Real Red randomly across the background.
  • To add a little something, black dots are up in the corner!  Love those dots!

Before I made the card above, I tried a different approach but just didn't think the colors worked as well.

  • The large Thank You is embossed in black on Whisper White.
  • Using the set Polka Dot Pieces, I stamped the large and small flowers in Real Red, Basic Black and Melon Mambo. Using the Scallop Circle punch, and smaller circle punches, I punched out different parts of the flower and layered them using dimensionals.
  • Added more Melon Mambo dots to the bottom!
It's another beautiful day here in Connecticut!  Enjoy your day, wherever you are!
