Outlawz Color Challenge - 03/06/2012

Here is the inspiration photo and colors that are for this weeks color challenge at The Outlawz

Good Morning Chicks!

Another challenge over at the Outlawz!  I started this card last night with a brayer and Adirondack rainbow stamp pad.  I used the flower print stamp and memento ink to apply the image to the glossy paper.  I didn't like how it looked and for some reason I looked over at the box of embossing powders and grabbed the Stampendous Glitter Gold Transparent powder.  I thought it would stick only onto the stamped image as I had heat set the inks.  Well... the embossing powder stuck al over it!  There was no way I could even attempt to correct this with a small soft brish so used the heat gun to see what would happen.   It turned out really kewl!!  My photo doesn't show it well but I'm really happy with the end result.

After trying every color combination for background papers I finally chose the bright yellow and bright orange textured cardstock.  The ribbon is actually dyed seam binding.  I noticed that the challenge twist was to add a rosette.  My hands just weren't working right so tied a quick bow instead....ooops! 

Here is a closer view that kind of shows you what happened!

When it came to stamping the sentiment I again brayered the glossy cardstock and stamped the image and embossed it the same as the main image.  Once again.. it looks wayyy better in real life!

The recipe is as follows:
Sentiment - Penny Black
Main image - Have to look when I get home
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
         Big N Juicy - Sunset
Embossing Powder - Stampendous
Ribbon - Fabricland
Papers - Unknown stash

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week!
