CC100

I know that most of you have seen CC100 by now, but I really liked it and wanted to share it again...

Stamps: Stampin' Up! Delight In Life - Sellabration 2007 set.

Paper: Stampin' Up! Cool Carribean, Chocolate Chip.

Ink: Stampin' Up! Cool Carribean, Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom.

Accessories: Coluzzle oval template, mini glue dots, Niji Aqua Brush, Sakura clear Stardust pen, Tombow Mono Multi.

Well I didn't win the big CC100 prize, because I was too lazy and laid on the couch too long before getting up to do the challenge! That's alright, I plan on making that AWESOME color challenge book myself (CASE'd heavily....but there is no way it will be as gorgeous as the one Leigh made!) along with a sketch challenge book of a similar nature! Wouldn't that just ROCK?!

The base of the card is Cool Carribean and I layered a piece of Chocolate Chip over top that I had cut using my new Coluzzle for the very first time! I stamped the sentiment in Cool Carribean and added that little swirly gig for a bit of flourish.

The flowers were stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock and watercolored using re-inker and a Niji Water Brush (from TAC or Michaels-about $8). I used a Stampin' Up! marker to color Blush Blossom in the centers of the flower, the accented with the Sakura clear Stardust pen.

If you don't have one of these Sakura clear Stardust pens....you so totally need one. I got mine from StarLitStudios on eBay. I have seen them at Joann's, but once you visit the StarLitStudios store, Joann's is just kinda a waste of time!
