CCJC8 – Color Combination Challenge

Today's Saturday Create with Connie and Julie Challenge is a Color Combination!  We were to use Orchid Opulence, So Saffron and Certainly Celery in our project!  Every week on Create with Connie and Julie, we issue a challenge for our subscribers.  Last week's winners were Lisa Martz and Robin Gregor with Honorable Mention to Cynthia Stevenson!   Congratulations, ladies!


I pulled out my Shades of Spring Designer paper because I knew it contained that color combination.  I love the paper, the designs on it are HUGE however, so I'm always hesitant about cutting it.  I must admit, it wasn't so bad!  lol!  I figure I can always order more!


I started with a base of Certainly Celery, then layered on the bold multi floral pattern from Shades of Spring.  I ran the second Certainly Celery pattern of Shades of Spring DSP thru my Big Shot with the Top Note die, then turned it and ran it thru again to make the medallion under the bird!  I punched the bird from the new Two-Step Bird punch in So Saffron and sponged the edges.  I punched the leaf/vine several times from Certainly Celery, then sponged the edges, and placed them under the bird.  I added floral buds by punching the bird's wing several times from Orchid Opulence cardstock.


Between the Certainly Celery and background DSPs, I used a strip of Orchid Opulence cardstock that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  Finally, I stamped Happy Easter from Well Scripted Stamp Set on So Saffron with Orchid Opulence Classic Ink and punched it with the Scallop Oval punch!


Pretty busy….but I like how it turned out!
