The first challenge for the I Dream of Stamping Winter Card Olympics challenges is a color challenge - to use either the olympic colors, or the colors from the flag of the team you are rooting for.
I decided to use the German flag colors, since they are who I root for when the US is not contending. The true flag colors are black, gold, and an orangey-red. I'm using Basic Black, Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry.I also am using the Taylored Expressions 100th sketch challenge sketch, along with some of her newest stamps, Fish in Love and the coordinating set Animal Love Sentiments. I got to use these sets for one of the make and takes and fell in love. I also used the Razzleberry lemonade dp from SU! along with some SU buttons.After coloring in my fish, I outlined both of them with Spica Glitter pens, then after stamping the sentimement, I cut it out with my circle nesties. Then, I added some crystal effects to the fish bowl to give it some shine and depth.
I hope you'll head over to the I Dream of Stamping blog and play along with us...we'll have another challenge posted over there on Tuesday evening! Happy President's day everyone!!
