Birthday Flowers (LSC186)

Wendy was tough on us today! Following are the rules for the Limited Supplies Challenge:
  • 1. White/Vanilla as main color
  • 2. Second color MUST be either black, brown (any shade) or gray
  • 3. Add a third color to accent the first two colors
  • 4. Use ONLY ink that matches the card stock colors you have chosen – no extra colors here!
  • 5. NO patterned paper or background stamps
  • 6. Stamp only ONE image, ONE time, somewhere on the white piece of card stock. Remember that you are LIMITED to only THREE colors – TOTAL!! No cheating by adding extra colors to a line art image that has to be colored in!
  • 7. If you use punches or a Nestabilties-type die, please stamp the image on white or vanilla there as well, keeping your top background layer white/vanilla, too!
  • 8. Stamp a sentiment and add to your card (this step is optional) – only use it once
  • 9. Embellish as you like (ribbons, brads, Cuttlebug embossing folders)
  • 10. NO “distressing” the white card stock – (that would be sponging!) – we want to keep these layers “clean”

I think I followed all those rules, don't you agree? I inked up the main image stamp with Going Gray and removed most of the gray from the flowers, then I colored the flowers with Pretty In Pink Marker, huffed and stamped. I used white gel pen for the flower centers. Thanks for visiting my blog today!
