Splitcoaststampers CC467 Color Challenge

How fun, I was able to enter into two different challenges. The first one is the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge CC467. The challenge was to use Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay and Midnight Muse with a topping of Watercolor.

The other challenge was for the Operation Write Home Mid Week Color Challenge to use Teal or Turquoise.

I had recently received my StampinUp Swallowtail stamp and decided to make a card with it. I really like the stamp, there are so many possibilities with it.  I also just received my StampinUp Hardwood stamp. Let me tell you I LOVE, LOVE LOVE that background stamp! I can see me using it a lot!

With out further ado, here are the cards I made, the photos are a little bit dark, it has been very overcast here and I had to take the pictures inside, plus my phone camera would not flash:

Stamps: StampinUp SwallowTail, Hardwood, Express Yourself, Label Love
Ink: StampinUp Midnight Muse, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, MFT Natural and Chocolate Brown, Archival Black
Paper: StampinUp Whisper White, Midnight Muse, Coastal Cabana, GinaK Pure Luxury White and Brown, MFT Natural
StampinUP Heat and Stick Powder and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

Thank you for looking and have a blessed day!
