Ready for another ColorLab Color Challenge? It proved to be the motivation I needed to get back to stampin' this week! Long week so far! Not sure why, other than more weird weather! We are lucky to have not been getting any of the severe weather that has hit other parts of the Midwest. Today though, feels much more like a Fall or early Spring day than a late May day. No sun, a cold North Wind and some rain.

Anyway, here are the colors for this week:

Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze &
 a Touch of Very Vanilla

And since these colors are somewhat masculine, I of course had to grab 'the boat' again! Hopefully you all aren't sick of it yet. I did do something very different with it this time!! The card base is Soft Suede with a Baja Breeze background that was stamped with the Wonderfully Worn background and textured with the Square Lattice folder. The Top Note was cut from Crumb Cake. I used an oval frame from the Bigz Die as a mask and sponged Very Vanilla Craft Ink onto it. I used a sponge dauber and went until fairly evenly all covered. I set it with the heat tool so I could get to stamping!! The boat was stamped with Soft Suede ink. I blended more Soft Suede on the boat, and added Crumb Cake accents to the sail. Then I masked the sails and boat and daubered Baja Breeze over. Lightly for the sky, darker for the sea. Gold brads accent the top 3 points on the Top Note and on the points of the Modern Label Punch saying element.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Do stop over by the ColorLab and play along!! We love to see your creations!!
