Color Challenge!

This week's the challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is a color challenge. My Outlawz Coloring Challenge teammates, Carla, Penny, Karen, Vannessa, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge. You should check out their blogs to see their gorgeous artwork.

Our August sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering our lucky winner three digis of his/her choice from the Sweet Pea Digi Stamp Store.  Play along with us for your chance to win!

Here's the color palette, courtesy of Design Seeds.

I should mention that Teresa's Marina is available in both rubber and as a digital stamp. I used the rubber version. Marina was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts) and colored with Copic markers. Turquoise Spica Glitter pen (Sakura) was used on the swirls in her hair. White Gelly Roll Glaze pen (Sakura) was used on the pearls in her hair. Clear Gelly Roll Glaze pen (Sakura) was used on her bracelet, the coral, and the miscellaneous water droplets/bubbles.

The image panel was die-cut and matching cardstock was die-cut with dies from the A2 Card Creator Nestabilities set (Spellbinders). One of the dies from the 5" x 7" Card Creator Nestabilities set (Spellbinders) was used to die-cut the darkest aqua/teal paper, which then took a ride through my Big Kick inside the Waterfall 5" x 7" embossing folder (Couture Creations). Cardstock was also die-cut with two of the three dies from the Grommet Tag die (Spellbinders). "Hello" from the Handwritten Sentiments die set (Little B) was die-cut from the tannish cardstock. The starfish and shell were die-cut and enhanced with my VersaMarker pen (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts). A Crab punch (Punch Bunch) was ued to punch a tiny crab to adorn the sentiment tag.

Thanks for visiting today!
