Up!


We had a fun family day today. After the cabinet inspector came, we did some errands then took the kids out for lunch and took them to the movie "Up! 3D...what a fun time! I LOVED the 3D effect of the movie, and it was a fun and very sweet story. A fun family day. Now the kids are jumping on the trampoline with the sprinkler on it. They love that! A great way to have fun, and beat the heat.

So I started this color challenge card this morning, but didn't finish it till this afternoon. Judy is our hostess this week, but wow, did she give us a doozie...Really Rust, Not Quite Navy and Pretty in Pink. It has a sort of folk art look to it to me.

I used the new set Wings of Friendship from SU. stamped the background layer and inside rust layer. Then I stamped the main image 4 different times. The main rust layer, then the navy bird, pink flowers and the multi-colored wing. I then went back with my Stampin' Write Marker and with the pen tip added definition to the flowers, bird and leaf/swirls. It's a nice effect on a solid stamp.

I added faux stitching around the 3 patterned paper panels on the top left and bottom right of each panel.

I'm still not sure about the colors, what do you think?
