Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #30

I am hosting the Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge today until Sunday 9pm EST. Get out your Clear Dollar Stamps and come join the fun here:

The colors I chose are:

Sage Shadow (muted green with touch of slate blue)

Regal Rose (Bubble Gum Pink)

More Mustard (Color of Dijon Mustard)

Optional: Copper

Neutral: White

These colors were a challenge for me. I chose colors that have not been used much. Even by me. These colors were new to me, except for More Mustard. So I went out of my comfort zone on this one. I even used my aqua pen and ink pads to color with. Yikes. Scarey.

First, I chose this cute cute cute image PATCHPAL BUNNY designed by our own Shawne Arnold from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS:

This was also my first time using him. I ordered him just before vacation and am just now getting to ink him up. He's sooooooo cute. I love carrots.

I am a bit disappointed with my picture taking skills. The sun is not shining through our overcast sky so I did my best with lighting indoors and still feel my card looks better IRL. Oh well........

Also, I did not have these colored papers, so I used my brayer and sponged for the BG.

Thanks for visiting.
