Thursday! Time for another challenge over at the ColorLab!! We hope you'll stop over and play along this week! Look at this fun combo!!

Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive & Chocolate Chip

Thanks to fellow ColorLab Chemist Jen Timko and all her creative efforts with this set, Every Moment, I had to order it! Click over to her blog and see some! I just went to get her link, and her most recent sample uses this set!! 

My card base is Chocolate Chip with a background layer of Elegant Eggplant textured with the Vintage Wallpaper folder in the Big Shot. I stamped the bird image in black Stazon on Watercolor paper. I wish I had remembered to try my Watercolor Crayons, but I'm out of the habit of using them and automatically grabbed my blender pen and classic ink. Need to work on my coloring more!! Anyway, the stems are Old Olive, Cattails Chocolate Chip,and bird Elegant Eggplant. I added corners of Chocolate Chip with my Photo corners punch and attached the image with dimensionals over Old Olive Taffeta ribbon. The saying was also stamped on Watercolor paper and punched with the Wide Oval punch. I added two butterflies that were stamped off once and lightly colored them with Elegant Eggplant. I like a little touch of something with the words! The oval is layered on an Old Olive Decorative label with dimensionals to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by today! Do stop over at the ColorLab and play along! We love to see what you come up with!!

A bird of a different color. We usually see this set with a little yellow bird. Now I'm thinking of lots of other colors this birdie could be. I like your choices.
