JustRite Friday Challenge 055: Color

WOW -- a truly fabulous
C O L O R palette for this week's JustRite Friday Challenge! My mojo had gone missing during my recent "stay-cation" (enjoying our son's visit with us), but I'm finally feeling its return. Woo-Hoo! I totally think this palette is beach perfect, but I chose to use my new Forever Friends cling set from JustRite and I'm quite pleased with the result!
I so enjoy using my Copic markers in ways included on this card -- to color the small heart on the sentiment stamp, to add a bit more color to the tiny heart sticker adorning my large sentiment (it was very pale aqua before) and most of all, coloring my seam binding for my wrinkled ribbon/bow, all using B01 Mint Blue. You truly do not have to be someone who colors (well or otherwise) to derive fabulous benefits from Copic markers!
I cut/embossed the 3 largest Spellbinders' Heart Circles' dies in Papertrey Ink's Linen & Vintage Cream CS, as well as my Ribbon Tags Trio Three die from Linen. YES -- the JustRite Forever Friends' cling stamps fit these Spellbinders' ribbon dies -- a HUGE bonus for me! I then stamped my two sentiments and antiqued all pieces in Papertrey Inks' Chamomile/Chai inks. Happily I now have another birthday card to add to my stash!
