Saturated Canary Challenge # 1 ...You Color My World!

Good morning stampin' friends! I was so excited to see that Krista Smith has started a new Saturated Canary Challenge blog and so I had to play along with the very first challenge! I am totally addicted to her sweet and funky images...you should check them out if you haven't already!!!! So, they have a great sketch to use and I looovvveeee sketches! I decided to flip it and I printed out Kate Krafty A Ragamuffin which I got here at Krista's Etsy shop. I decided to print her out as a larger than usual image...that is the cool thing about digis you can resize them to fit your needs.


I used my BasicGrey 6x6 Out of Print paper pad and American Crafts cardstock and ribbon. I distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz Distressing tool and painted all the edges of the papers with Tim Holtz Picket Fence Crackle paint for a shabby feel.  I also used my MFT Die-nmaics flower dies and the open scallop border die....love adding a touch of black to a card it is a great design element as it grounds and makes other colours pop!
Here is the inside...pretty simple! Both sentiments are from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!

Have a stampin' great day!!!!

Thrilled to see you being able to use Krista's images. I do like your use of the black - it does just as you say - make the other colours 'zing' & especially so with both the pink & aqua in this.
