Challenge Week 14

So, it's Saturday... bet y'all thought I wasn't going to participate this week huh? Well, guess what... even without a spectrum pad, I managed to fulfill my weekly obligation. I'm just a little late getting it posted...

The photo seems a tad bit overexposed (need to speak to my photographer!) because you can't really tell the spectrum colors - Bravo Burgundy, River Rock and Bashful Blue. So, what's cool when you don't own a spectrum pad, is that you can create your own colors... I just dabbed the stamp directly with a sponge of each color... kinda awesome, because you can 'place' the colors where you'd like... so the bottom half of the sentiment is in Bashful Blue, but I made sure the star dotting the 'j' was in River Rock. I also used a strip of Bashful Blue from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' kit and a touch of Crystal Effects on the top flowers.

Supplies:
Stamps: Season of Joy (Holiday Mini Collection)
Ink: Bravo Burgundy, River Rock, Bashful Blue, Sage Shadow
C/S: River Rock, Whisper White, Bravo Burgundy, Sage Shadow
Access: Burgundy Grosgrain, Winter Bright SS Kit; Crystal Effects, Sponges, Dimensionals
