Stamper's Dream Dreamy Challenge 7

May's challenge is a three part challenge! A color challenge, a challenge to use texture, and a challenge to use bling. SO fun! Tosha picked the best colors to work with:
Blush Red Dark, Island Mist Medium, Birchtone Light Accent with either Suede Brown Dark or Ivory. I think they are gorgeous together and I will definately be using that combination again!


Well, the color part is fairly obvious... For texture I did two things. The first one was embossing my Island Mist medium cardstock with an Impressabilities. I also added a Birchtone Light Accent cardstock frame. I inked the embossing details to make them stand out a bit more. The bling is sparce, but I added some Zva crystals to the centers of the chipboard flowers and to the letter i's in the sentiment.


Here is a close up look at the chipboard. The Maya road bird chipboard set is gorgeous. I love that it comes with different branches, birds, and wings! I wanted a springy looking branch, so I added some flowers. The bird wing and flowers were stamps with part of a flower image from Penny Black. The chipboard is covered in patterned paper (edges sanded) and the branch was painted, cause let's face it, no one needs that stress! :)
We cannot wait to see your take on the challenge! Remember there are 3 parts-color, texture, and bling. Use colors as close to the originals as possible. Label your card SDDC7 in SCS. Then, for a chance to win a prize, link your project back to the Stamper's Dream blog.
