ColorLab43

Man, where do the weeks go?? Time seems to zipping by me! The good news though is, Thursday means it's time for another ColorLab Challenge! Do stop over and play along with us this week! The colors of the week:


Not Quite Navy, Riding Hood Red, 
& Early Espresso


I decided to go masculine. And I resisted the "urge" to grab Sail Away again. Instead, I grabbed the Countryside set and my Watercolor Crayons. The card base is Early Espresso with a background of Riding Hood Red. On that background I stamped the apple image randomly. Then I spritzed it with Early Espresso ink before texturing with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. The truck was stamped on Naturals White with Early Espresso ink. I added color from my watercolor crayons with a blender pen. Because I used my classic Early Espresso instead of Basic Black or Black Stazon, I need to be fairly careful when coloring or the Espresso will bleed. And, actually, I discovered when it did bleed, it just contributed to the antique look of the truck. Otherwise known as a happy accident :) The truck is Not Quite Navy, apples and sign are Riding Hood Red, baskets and grass are Early Espresso. I added a little spritz here too with Early Espresso before attaching to a Not Quite Navy later, adding an Early Espresso 1-1/4" Grosgrain ribbon to the side, and attaching to the background.
