CSS Color Challenge Hop

I am glad that you are back to see what the Center Stage Alumni team has for you this time around.  If you arrived from Joy's blog, you are in the right place.  If you would like to start at the beginning, click HERE.


Our challenge is to create a card or project based on the following color combination:





Boy, oh boy- I love these colors!!!! and couldn't wait to create with them.  My card is a 4.25" square.  I CB'd the Soft Sand card stock, and then layered a Nestie.  The image is from Gina K's  "You are not Alone" stamp set. I colored the flowers with Memento markers and then spritzed with water to give the watercolor effect.
The two pearls were tinted with a Copic marker.



 PLAY ALONG FOR A CHANCE TO WIN-

Create and upload a new project for this challenge and it can only be entered into this challenge on StampTV to be eligible for a prize. However, you can use it for challenges outside of StampTV. If you use Gina K. Designs stamps, your name will go into the pot twice.

Please have your project uploaded to the gallery  at StampTV using keyword STVCSP15 by 8:00 PM central time, Thursday night, March 17th.

Friday, March 18th, we will announce a randomly chosen winner from all of the entries who will win any Gina K. Designs stamp set valued up to $24.95.

Thank you for joining in our hop, now head over to Linda Payne's blog to see her gorgeous creation.
