DRS Designs Color Challenge & Merry Monday Challenge

The challenge at DRS Designs is a color challenge. The colors are perfect for St. Patrick's Day card and Easter cards. Here's the photo for inspiration.

Here's the St. Patrick's Day card I created for this challenge.

I started by using a green gelato to do a color wash on some water color paper. I used a nestie to die cut this panel and then stamped the new Irish Inventory sentiment in Stazon Tuxedo Black ink. The panel was layered on green CS and then on a white card base. The shamrocks were punched out with a MS punch and sponged around the edges for some definition before attaching them to the card. Some small orange rhinestones were added to the centers to complete the look. Hope you like it.

This week's prize for this challenge is your choice of two DRS Designs' stamps. They have just released some fun new stamps too. Hope you can join in the fun.

My next card is for this week's Merry Monday Challenge to use a Santa on your card. My favorite Santa image from DRS Designs is Wintertime Buddies. I think it's the cutest image.

I stamped the Wintertime Buddies on white CS with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics and die cut with a square nestie. It's layered on some red CS and some small punched snowflakes and rhinestones were added to the image. The blue panel was dry embossed with a Darice snowflake folder, another one of my favs. Some white lace and a "joy" button with some blue baker's twine complete the look. Hope you like it. I'm pretty sure my granddaughter, Joy will like it. :-)
