Happy Tuesday and welcome to a new color challenge for the week. It’s the Utah Diva’s Color Challenge and we are on week #51.   Here is the inspiration picture for this week –

This week we are starting to see some of our new In-Colors – Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo along with Pacific Point and Always Artichoke.  Some pretty glass beads are in this week’s inspiration picture.  I was looking at trying to make some paper beads but didn’t have papers in the right colors so I’ll have to do that another time.

Instead I went with a card and wanted to use a stamp set that I haven’t used before.

This is what I came up with.  It is a long card 6×3 that fits in the long open-end envelopes.  The base is Lucky Limeade, then a layer of Always Artichoke with scallops at one end.  The Whisper White panel is stamped with the mushrooms from the stamp set Funky Four.  It is hard to tell in the picture but I inked the stamp in Lucky Limeade and then took the Always Artichoke Stampin’ Write Marker and went around the outline of each mushroom.  I had in my mind that the mushrooms needed a little butterfly sitting on top so I pulled out the set Flight of the Butterfly and my Beautiful Wings Embosslet.   The stamped butterfly is done the same as the mushrooms – inked in Pacific Point and then outlined with the Stampin’ Write marker in Island Indigo before I stamped it on my card stock.  The words are Pacific Point.  I added two little die cut butterflies and some Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon.  Then at the very end I decided to pull out the new Dazzling Details that will be in the new Holiday Mini Catalog and add little touches of it on the dots on the butterfly and mushrooms and also on the tiny die-cut butterfly.  Here is a close up picture of that.

Oh yeah one more final thing – the mushrooms looked like they were just floating around and so i used the marker to add some scribbles underneath to ground them.  Here on this close up picture you can see the two colors on the mushrooms better.  Hope you like it.
