ColorLab5

Time for another challenge at the ColorLab!  Let's see what we're cooking up this week!!  Here is the inspiration:



Colors are Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake & Real Red.  My thoughts went along with the pencil and back to school, probably in part because my boys are starting TODAY!!!

Here is what I came up with:


A Good Luck with for someone starting a new venture!   Card base is Basic Gray.  Background is Daffodil Delight that I textured with the Square Lattice folder.  At the top is a strip of Crumb Cake, and under the bottom scallop edge is a strip of Blushing Bride, both inspired by the pencil.  Around the center is a Real Red Grosgrain ribbon.  The Scallop Oval Die was used to cut a Crumb Cake and the smaller Real Red oval.  I unwrapped my new Owl punch and gave it a try!  Love it and will be using it much more in the future!  Owl body is Basic Gray, eyes are Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride & Basic Gray.  Blushing Bride DSP for the body and a Daffodil Delight heart.  The owl is attached with dimensionals onto the ovals, and the ovals are attached with dimensionals over the ribbon.  The saying is from Fundamental Phrases and is stamped in Real Red on Crumb Cake, punched with the Large oval and layered on a Scallop Oval of Basic Gray.

Won't you play along this week?  Click HERE to enter the lab.
