You are going to love, and I mean LOVE, using today’s ColorLab Challenge colors.  They are seriously beautiful together! 

The Perfect Plum and Basic Gray pair so nicely and I loved adding a pop of Bashful Blue.  I found another great sketch courtesy of the Operators over at Stampin’ 411 and got to work.  Something about this color scheme compelled me to pull out my Every Moment set.  I just knew the flower and the butterfly would be fantastic on this challenge. 

I started with a base of watercolor paper for my image and stamped the flower and butterfly in Black Stazon Ink.  Using my lightest color first, I colored my butterfly with Bashful Blue and then the flower with Perfect Plum.  I have Stampin’ Write markers in these colors so I used the technique of coloring a bit on a clear block and pulling the color from there with my Blender Pen.  I added Basic Gray to the flower center and stem, and then to the butterfly.  With the little left on my Blender Pen, I shaded a little around the images with Basic Gray.  I used the sentiment from Say It Simply (again!)…it really is a great little set!

For the rest of the card, I rolled out a frame on Perfect Plum with my Big Shot and the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder.  I did use some retired Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon and scrunched it using the thread pulling technique.  All you have to do is rough up the end a bit and pick a center thread to pull.  I did the same on the tails of the bow.  The bow is held together with an Antique Brad.  The team over at Pals Paper Arts have a Bow challenge this week…how fun!  Of course, I love a bow so I am thrilled to join in. 

I hope you love playing with these colors this week!  I can’t wait to see your beautiful creations!  I’ll be back tomorrow for the Stampin’ Addicts Sale-a-bration Blog Hop.  I’ll be showing you projects with the SAB choice Funky Four.  Thanks for stopping in today!
