Color Challenge Tuesday #25-2016

Tuesday's challenge is a color challenge.  This is the inspiration:

And here is how Kim took on the challenge - 

I drew inspiration from the flower for this card.  When I saw the picture, I immediately dug into my stash and grabbed my Hero Arts Flower Stencil and began inking it up on a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper.  The stencil is inked with Distress Inks -- Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon as shown.  Distress Inks blend beautifully on watercolor paper.  I applied Perfect Pearl to the ink while still wet and buffed to a shine with a soft paper towel.  The sentiment is from (CAS-UAL Fridays) and stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  I cut both the green and watercolor cardstock with Stampendous Fitted Frames B.  Adhere to a A2 size cardstock and add embellishments.

Here is Robbie's card - 

Love these fresh colors!  So much you can do with it.  I went the route of using some Stampin’ Up framelits and other supplies to create my card.  Using the Flourish framelits and Night of Navy card stock cut out the edge piece.  Then use Cucumber Crush card stock to cut out the leaf spray.  Next use the Flower Fair framelits to cut out the larger flower from Marina Mist and cut the smaller flower from Crushed Curry.  The last element is the butterfly cut from Bermuda Bay card stock using the Sunshine Wishes framelits.  Apply a dot of Tombow Multipurpose liquid glue to the back of all the framelits in various spots.  Set aside to dry.  Take a scrap of Whisper White card stock and using the Sentiment in Garden in Bloom stamp it with Night of Navy.  Cut the card stock down to size and use a sponge dauber to ink the edges.   Using a piece of Whisper White card stock that measures 4” x 5 ¼”, take the leaf spray and apply it to your card stock.  Attach the border over the leaf spray along the bottom of the card stock and cut down to size if necessary.  Attach the larger flower to the top of the leaf spray.  Apply the smaller flower in the center of the larger flower.  The butterfly is attached to the card stock in the upper left hand corner.  Use SNAIL adhesive to attach the sentiment to the upper right hand corner.  The card stock is attached to the Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  All supplies are Stampin’ Up.  Here is the completed card. ~ Robbie

I love the feeling of summer shown in both of the cards.  If you do the challenge, you can use two or three or all of the colors.
