May Color Combo with Heather H. (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you! This month is kind of that lovely in between spring and summer season - so I wanted to be bright and happy to celebrate the return of sunshine, flowers, and getting outdoors - plus, I really wanted to play a little more with the adorable kitties in the Purrfect with Evelin T Designs stamp set!

Here is my color inspiration for this month - I don't know about you, but I would just love to step into that scene!

I began by stamping a sentiment from another Evelin T stamp set - Wish Big using Black Jack Catherine Pooler Ink. I then did some distress ink blending on the top half using Spun Sugar Distress ink, then mixed a little of the same ink with some Worn Lipstick, mixed with a bit of water, then used it to add some splatters over my card front. I also added some white ink splatters over the top for even more texture.

Finally, I colored up my adorable image with Copics and a white gel pen for accents, then die cut with the coordinating dies and mounted with foam adhesive on my card.

Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! This challenge had a few less entries than lately - I'm blaming the weather making everyone want to get outside instead of craft! But there are still some GORGEOUS entries! Sooooo...on to the favorites!

First up - this soft and dreamy beauty from Maryam...seriously - this is breathtaking! Maryam had several beautiful entries - but this one stole my heart!

Next up, this fun and happy baby card by Rosali - LOVE those beautiful stripes, the cute critters so beautifully colored, and the sentiment and stars! Just a lovely card all around!

And finally, despite everyone being ready for spring these days, Trina P made the CUTEST little snowmen cards for her entries! I love the inky backgrounds and fun techniques - but this little cutie using the body of the snowman for the "o" in "snow" was SOOO cute!


Celebrate your Day
No. 1 | MeganBeth
This is just such a fun card for any gender and age!  I love the movement on this card too!

And since we had so many gorgeous, colorful entries (and because I just feel like it and one the perks of being the boss at w&w is I can do these things on a whim!) I randomly chose one of the Heather's favorite cards featured above to also win as well!

No. 7 | Maryam
What an amazingly beautiful card!  I love the use of the wide swath of organic color behind the fabulously colored all-in-shades-of-greys flower.  Just lovely!
