Missing You

Our challenge over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge is from Jane and here's what her challenge was:

Jane here asking you to use any shades of purple, orange and yellow together on your creation for this new Stampotique challenge!   I love color and these really talk to me. :)  Hope you will join us in making this Stampotique challenge one of the most colorful challenges yet!  Can't wait to see these colorful creations popping out all over blog-land in purples, oranges and yellows :)  After all..Summer is suppose to be hot and colorful right?  

For my card I took a few of my IMAGINE Crafts® Fireworks!™ Craft Sprays in Grape Jelly, Lulu Lavendar and Potter's Clay and sprayed them on my card base.

Once they were dry, I stamped my Village stamp 10010 from Stampotique in IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Tuxedo Black.

I colored the roofs of the houses with my copic markers and to add a little more, I used the Wild Honey Distress Stain daubers to highlight some light coming through the windows.

The top of my card needed a little something so I stamped the Sun, Moon and Clouds stamp 3026 in the upper left hand corner and also used the daubers on this.

As the finishing touch I sprayed some IMAGINE Crafts® GooseBumps™ Texture Spray in Shimmer on the whole card and typed my sentiment on my typewriter.

Hope you will join us over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge this week for a chance to win a $30 gift certificate for stamps.

Very pretty Kim. You used the colors perfectly. It has a nice artwork feel to it. Something you would see in a gallery.
