Theresa's Color Challenge StampTV

Are you tired of flowers yet? I'm not tired of these beauties from the Floral Frenzy StampTV kit. This card is for the Color Challenge on StampTV hosted by Theresa this week. The challenge was to use Pink and some of the digital paper that is free to download on GinaK Designs. It was created to use with and for this kit.
I colored the lilies with copic markers and sponged around the edge with brushed corduroy distress ink by Tim Holtz. I didn't want to add a lot of embellishments but I did want something of interest in the upper right hand corner. I decided to use my corner punch as a reverse decorative punch. I punched the corner and then folded it back so the fancy design showed. I mounted the main image on a piece of Pretty in Pink SU cs. The floral dp is the first sheet that I have used of the Floral Frenzy digital paper. I love it. I tied my ribbon around the main image. I broke down and used a piece of my precious pink ribbon that came in my Floral Fenzy kit, it is beautiful and has such a wonderful sheen to it.
I mounted the main image on the bottom panel that was another piece of Pretty in Pink with a piece of the pink/brown light digital cs.
The final step was to stamp the sentiment at the bottom. I love the way that the GinaK sentiment stamps are always bold enough to be seen when stamped but they don't distract from the image.
If you don't like color challenges, there is a 3-D challenge hosted by Donna Baker, a sketch challenge hosted by Kurtis, a Scrapbook challenge hosted by Emily, a new video tonight showing how to color with colored pencils and OMS (odorless mineral spirits).
I'll be back tomorrow night, not sure with what yet, but I always have something in the works.

Good Night
