Stampin' Up! Australia - The Artful Stampers Colour Challenge #9


This week, the team have a colour challenge to share with you so I thought I would go all out with the Melon Mambo and colour Blended Bloom with the Blendabilities. 

With my shading I only used the medium and light markers on each petal and I used the dark marker to colour those end curly parts of the petal. The middle was coloured with my Encore Gold ink applied with a sponge dauber. 

It is a very CAS card, but because the Melon Mambo flower is so bold, I felt that to add much else would be competing for the eye. 

I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch to help me come up with this card....such a great sketch...you could do anything here! 

Here's the list of blog hop participants.....I can't wait to see what our illustrious leader, Alisa Tilsner has come up with this week! She is next on the hop.
