Watercooler Color Challenge

WCC26, Color Challenge

It’s time for another Watercooler Challenge! This is a color challenge from Jean Fitch. Doesn’t that photo just make you want a piece of lemon pie? Or Key Lime? It screams summer to me.

Instead of a card, I made a tag this time. I’ll either use it for a gift or add it to a card later.

Here’s my take on the challenge.

WCC26, Stampin Up!
I inked the Lucky Stars embossing folder with Daffodil Delight ink, then sponged it with Crumb Cake ink to “vintage it up” a little and tone down the yellow.

I used the 1/4″ circle punch to punch the hole in the tag, and then punched circles in two Crumb Cake card stock scraps. Then, I die cut a 1/2″ circle (approximately) around the 1/4″ circles in the card stock and layered them over the tag.

I added some of the new Gold Metallic Thread behind the die-cut butterfly, looped some Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon (oops – it retired) in the tag and tied it with more metallic thread. The butterfly looked a bit naked, so I added a string of Basic Pearl jewels to the center.

Check out the challenge here, then create a project using the colors (or similar colors) in the challenge. The design team has provided ideas for a creative springboard. Link your project to the challenge blog, and your card could be picked as a favorite!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy!  Have a wonderful day.
