ColorLab55

Hello all! It's the 15th and that means another ColorLab challenge!! Grab your Lab Coat and play along!! Here are the colors for this month


Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight & Marina Mist

and the card I created.


I've decided you can make Fall leaves with LOTS of different colors!! I have open houses this weekend and this was an experiment with the Baby Wipe Technique to decide if I wanted to use if for the group or not. Fun fun!! Stop by next week to see if I used it for the group, and for more details on the technique!! The short version: add drops of desired colors to a baby wipe-using reinkers, darkest to lightest, and use that as an ink pad. That is how I inked my leaves, so they are all a blend of the three colors. Over that, I stamped splatter drops in Marina Mist. The card base is Cajun Craze with a Marina Mist layer behind the Naturals Ivory background. The edge of the background was sponged with Daffodil Delight, and a Daffodil Delight grosgrain knotted around before attaching to the Marin Mist. The saying is from Blessings from Heaven, a new to me set with some great sayings. I stamped the saying over a leaf on Naturals Ivory, added some light Marina splatters around the edge, sponged with Daffodil and layered onto Marina & Cajun. The elements is attached with dimensionals over the ribbon. One final accent, I added a Marina Mist 1/8" Taffeta knot around the Daffodil ribbon knot.

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you stop over at the ColorLab and see what the other Chemists created. And, don't forget to play along-you have an entire month!!
