Three Color Challenges

Hey Divas!!!  Design Team Member EK here today, showing off some three color coloring17022386_10154975460188954_1810022969252977118_n with the Whimsical Wishes stamp set over at Craftin Desert Divas.

With the popularity of card challenges around the net, and so many of them being coloring challenges, I thought I would show off how to take a fun stamped scene and still apply it to a three color challenge.

EK Gorman CDD 5-5.1The colors I picked came from this month’s Mood Board challenge over on the CDD Facebook Gallery.  The three colors I picked were, current, bright blue, and purple.EK Gorman CDD 5-5.2

I started off stamping out the fairy and sentiment from the Whimsical Wishes stamp set using my MISTI.  Then masking her off, and stamping three different sized flowers and the wand.  I just love how masking can create such a beautiful scene.

The card needed tones of sparkle so the fairy dust could be everywhere, so I colored in the white space with spectrum noir glitter pen.  I pulled out my Mix It Up dies and die cute a rectagle out of the card stock and matted it with some current card stock.  I added the die cut matte image back onto the negative die cut.  The card glitters so much!!!  It is the perfect Fairy Dust.
