This week at A.R.T. it's a colour challenge.  The colours are three shades of grey (not 50, thank goodness - ha ha!!) combined with dark red and peach.  Oooooh! They were not easy!  Anyway, I started with dark red cardstock and layered on paper from Far Away paper pad (teresa collins).  Then I stamped the hydrangea image from JustRite's Botanical Medallions & Banners stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics and die cut it with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die.  Next, I die cut peach cardstock with a Spellbinders Scallop Circle and also dark red cardstock with another Spellbinders Standard Circle, then layered them all together.  I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) with Memento Gray Flannel ink onto white cardstock, die cut it with a Spellbinders Labels 8, layered it onto dark red cardstock, and added it to the background.  The horizontal panel is from the same Far Away paper pad and I added dark red ribbon and a bow.  Finally, the image piece was attached with foam tape.

Copic Colours used were: C1, C3, C5, R000, R01, R02.

Thanks for visiting!!
