ColorfuLEE Yours!


The Mod Squad challenge this week is "ColorfuLEE Yours" and that's because Lee has given us the challenge of using browns and reds together. I used a Northwoods stamp and colored it with Early Espresso ink, and matted with red. The banner strips were done with SU red & early espresso cardstock, dsp, and DCWV dsp. I hand cut assorted widths and lengths of the banners and added some red bling from Pizzazz Aplenty. The bird was stamped on red cardstock and hand-cut, while I added some subtle green color to the stems.

This card is also headed for the Snippets Playground #117 since the banners were all done with leftovers.

That's going to do it for me today, but thanks for stopping by, and I hope your day is going well!

Gorgeous image, Carol, and a super creation. I really like the banners in different lengths.

We're beginning to see leaves coming on a few trees and they will all be popping out soon. Can't wait.

Very nice card, Carol. I noticed those touches of green on the stem right away and was thinking that I can't wait to see that in our yard. I love the papers you went with for the little banners and your little gems are so cute. Enjoy the evening.

I am loving this card Carol, so striking! The color combo is fabulous and I love that you stamped the cardinal on red paper and cut it out. Really stands out there! Mary would love this card as she loves cardinals! lol Hugs

Mary DOES love this card! Very much so!!!! First, anything Nwoods gets my eye. If it has a cardinal on it, well...it just sneaks into my basket. I like the CAS treatment you did on the stamp, as it shows off that beautiful bird wonderfully. Also loved the banner trim that you added for splash. It's perfect. Well done!!! TFS & Hugs

This is a great card! Gorgeous image and I love the added banners. The one with the wood grain/crackle print really matches the trees in the image. Great job!
