First Edition Moment

First Edition Moment published on 14 Comments on First Edition Moment

I had a little time today to play some challenges that I love.  What a bonus!  Stampin’ Celebration is one of my favorite inspiration sites and they have a really pretty piece this week.  At least on my computer, I saw River Rock, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla as the way to go.  I also found a great sketch over at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge so off to stamping I went.

The colors really made me want to play with my Every Moment stamp set.  This was one of the first sets in this year’s catalog that I completely fell in love with!!  I have also seen the friends of this little chickadee on my bird feeder lately.  Hopefully I captured his colors closely.  I used some of the First Edition DSP in the background for some visual texture and sponged it with Soft Suede and Early Espresso on the edges.  The image was watercolored using River Rock, Soft Suede and Early Espresso.  I really LOVE those colors together!  For the last detail, some Espresso Satin Ribbon was cinched in a bow using an Antique Brad.

I had some trouble capturing this card.  It just seems prettier in person but you get the idea, at least.  So happy to have you drop in today.  I’ll be back tomorrow with another ColorLab Challenge.  Until then, have a great day!

Oh so pretty. Great looking card. That stamp set never grabbed my attention in the catalogue but I really like your card with it.
Way to use those colors. I have trouble with River Rock and have never really liked it. I love it when I can see cards that other people make using that color successfully!
