Wednesday Color Challenge -- Wisteria Wonder

Happy Wednesday, crafters.  There are a lot of gals at the Stampin'Up! Convention this week, so our blog hop number is smaller.  I went last year, but not this year.  I hope they have a grand time!

Our challenge this week has some pretty blues and purples.  Here is the inspiration piece.

Robbie did not give us a comparable chart with Stampin'Up! colors, and I am not sure how to set it up in My Digital Studio, but here are the colors:

Wisteria Wonder
Elegant Eggplant
Wild Wasabi
Coastal Cabana
Pool Party

I believe I used all of the colors, and it looks like I have done flowers again.  I love Blendabilities and have been playing with them on my flower sets.  On this card I used both Blendabilities and Markers.  I am happy with how rich the blue flowers look, but even the green leaves, done with markers, are pretty too.  Here is my card:

I started by using the Hexagon Hive Thinlet as a stencil.  However, by the time I added the flowers and the sentiment, it is hard to see anything more than a couple sponge blobs.  I like using that thinlet as a stencil and will probably do it again.  The flower arrangement is Sweetbriar Rose, which I really love.  I fussy cut it and popped it on Dimensionals so there would be some depth.  However, you can shadow around the image and get it to look 3-D too.

You should have arrived from Liz's blogsite, where you always find something really  nice.  Liz is a fantastic crafter.  Next you may continue back to the beginning with Robbie's blogsite.  Robbie comes up with some really super creations.  She is at Convention right now.  I am jealous, as I would love to be there too.  I hope she has a fun time and comes back with tons of ideas and a bunch of new stamps and product.

Until next time.............

Crafty Hugs,
