Jan. 15, 2011 CSS Alumni Color Spotlight Blog Hop

Welcome to the StampTV  Center Stage Alumni  1st blog hop of the New Year!

  If you arrived from Jennie's blog, you are in the right place.  If you would like to start at the beginning, click HERE.

This time were are using Gina's Color Spotlight challenge.  Gina has posted two color combos, but here are the colors I used:



This is what I came up with, using Gina's "Autumn Splendor" stamp set.  I colored the image with Copics, and then added a red bow made with the Bow-easy.
The dp is Basic Grey matted with Gina K Pure Luxury CS.  The piece of Fresh Asparagus CS was CB's for added texture.



I really liked this color combo.  Now it's time for you to head over to Kay's blog to see the lovely creation she has for you to see today!
Thanks for hopping along with the CSS team!  We hope that you will play along and post your card at Gina's challenge link for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice, valued at 24.95 or less.
