Hello Blended Bloom


Hi, friends! Today is Wednesday which means it's time for a new challenge at Colour Me! This week it's a subtle combo of Pistachio Pudding, Blushing Bride and Rose Red. Yumm!!! I love pinks and greens together! 


I've been collecting Copic markers like crazy lately and wanted to use some of them for this challenge. The Blended Bloom stamp is perfect for coloring with copics, and I paired it with a die cut sentiment from Mama Elephant. The background was created by sponging with a Heidi Swapp stencil.




I'm also playing along with the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this sketch. The theme challenge is "In the Middle" at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is to create your own background.


Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Blended Bloom (SU)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Basic Black (SU)
Ink Pads: Pistachio Pudding (SU)
Markers (Copic)
Tools: Big Shot, Hello Script Die (Mama Elephant)
Accessories: Butterfly Stencil Set (Heidi Swapp)

Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll play along with us this week at Colour Me!
