Stampendous Monthly Color Challenge

This month challenge is to make a card or project using the colors pink, brown, cream and gold or at least 3 of them.  I made this card for the Stampendous Catalog.   I took 2 wide pieces of Crepe ribbon (by Creative Impressions) slightly overlapping and taped them down.  Using Versamark I stamped and then embossed the image using Stampendous Clear Bark embossing powder.  The Embossing powder fused the two pieces of ribbon together.  I flipped the ribbon over and colored using Copic R83 on the reverse because embossing powder and Copics don't play nice.  I flipped the ribbon back over  and adhered to the card.

I hope you enjoy the little tid-bit.  You can go HERE and get your stamp from Stampendous and make your own.  The challenge starts now and runs through January 5th


If you've been stuck in a traditional holiday color mode, this is your opportunity to think outside the Christmas crayon box! Please join us in our challenge this month, and link your creation(s) to the InLinkz.  You don't have to use Stampendous images and/or products on your designs…but we sure love it when you do!   One lucky random winner will receive this fabulous Stampendous prize, Amore Frames Perfectly Clear set

You are just a blogging momma lately... Good to see! I'm very jealous that you can do shabby chic along with everything else. Is there anything you can't do?
