Color Dare 85




Color Dare 85
Melon Mambo
Blushing Bride
Pacific Point

I love the two pinks with the pop of Pacific Point in this week's colour challenge.  I don't own any Blushing Bride, so subbed in a colour from my LSS which I hope is a close match :)  

I combined this week's colours with Mercy's Sketch.  Just love this woman's sketches!! You can dress them up of keep them simple, the sky is the limit :)


I pulled out the very first Verve set I ever purchased - Serenity.  Yes, this set is where my Verve addition began LOL!  Julee has so many fabulous sentiments in her sets and a wonderful selection of Bible verses as Plain Janes in fonts that I absolutely love (not to mention her flowers!).  I over stamped the sentiment with the Serenity leaf image, but it 's a bit hard to see as it is such a light colour.


Continuing with my addition theme, out came the lacy circle nesties again.  I crimped the horizontal banner for some added dimension and embossed the melon mambo panel with a new embossing folder I don't even know the name of just yet LOL!  One of the local scrapbooking stores I shop at brilliantly split up the four packs they now come in so you can buy them individually.  I twisted my rubber arm for, oh.....about a second, and into my basket it went :)    Two leaves from Verve's Autumn Splendor, a button and two black half pearls finished the card of nicely.

The rest of the Team has lots of inspiration for you.  You can check out their creations here:

You are making it VERY hard to resist those lacey Nesties when you crank out all these beautiful cards using them! :-) Love all the texture you included...great job using these bright colors (well, 2 out of 3 are eye poppers).

There are so many wonderful elements on this card, Marisa! I love the texture that the crimping and embossed panel add, and the watermark effect of the leaves behind the sentiment is lovely.

Benzi said...

Very pretty, Marisa! I do like how you over stamped the sentiment and that embossing folder is very pretty, too. Hope you didn't hurt your arm with the twisting...LOL

Emily Keaton said...

Marisa, you did a super job with these challenge colors!! I just love that combo of bright and pretty colors. Lovely job on the layout, and once again I love how you overstamped your sentiment with a subtle image.

Another perfect color challenge completed! Your ef is awesome - especially in melon mambo and those lacy nesties really may need to be my next investment. You always do them up perfectly!

Renée said...

I have always loved that quote and I love how you've framed it so beautifully in this sketch and with these colours!

I went to check out the latest callenge at The Color Dare and this stopped me in my tracks! Such a gorgeous use of the colors, you have completely inspired me. That embossing folder is a must-have, too!! :)

I like the choice of embossing. The sentiment looks pretty with the faint image behind it. Such a great accent with the leaves and button.

Joan said...

Beautiful, Marisa. I love how you've placed the verse in a circle.

Dawn B. said...

This is beautiful. I love the way you stamped the verse and the flower. This is becoming one of my fav. embossing folders. Great job..

Lee-Anne said...

Just beautiful Marisa. I wouldn't have thought these were the easiest colours to work with, but you have done an amazing job. I love the Verve sentiment and the embossed background, just gorgeous.
