The Stamping Boutique's Challenge #11 - Cool Colors

For the next fortnight, The Stamping Boutique has a challenge up to create a project using ONLY cool colors.  If you don't remember from art classes what's 'cool' (I say purple and green combo, but I think I'm using the word 'cool' differently) ... Here's a color wheel to help you out ...

(Hey wait a sec - My 'cool' colors fit into the cool side of the color wheel!)

I chose this Journal Cynthia and colored her with Copics with purple and blue hues.  The papers are digital papers from Bearly Mine Designs.  I can't believe how hard it is to find some purple designer paper in the stores - what's up with that?!

I used clear glitter gel pen, Purple Stickles and some irridescent shimmer paint for the clouds.  I tried 6 different pics and just couldn't get it to show up - trust me - they shimmer with a little bit of blue hue to them.  I tied some eggplant grosgrain ribbon to 2 of the corners.  The image panel was cut with my Creative Memories oval system & then "out of the box" for the clouds.

Hope you like it ... Make sure you give it a try and submit your entry on The Stamping Boutique's Challenge Blog for a chance to win.

The winner will receive 3 digital images of your choice from The Stamping Boutique.
The top 3 will get to display The Stamping Boutique's Top 3 badge.

Have a great day!
