Rockin' Teal

I was just playing around the other day and decided to do a challenge over at Splitcoaststampers (SCS). The color challenge was to use Taken with Teal, White and Wild Wasabi (or Glorious Green).

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but I really wanted to play with a new stamp set (Sweet Serendipity) that I haven't had a chance to play with since I bought it. And this is what I came up with. It always helps me when I have either a sketch or a color combo to play with. I get interrupted a lot when I'm stamping, so anything to make it go a little faster is always a plus! :)

I started out with a Taken with Teal base. Added a white layer and a Wild Wasabi layer on top of the white. I wanted to stamp a background, but didn't want to get up to grab one, so I just used what was in the stamp set (the "flower" stamp). Stamped it repeatedly onto Wild Wasabi. I grabbed the True Friend stamp set that was sitting on my desk, and Rock n' Rolled it in Wild Wasabi and Taken with Teal ink. I haven't used my Build a Brads yet so I thought I would add one to my card. I stamped the "circle flower" in Taken with Teal and punched it out with 1/2" circle punch and glued it to the brad and put a "pebble" on top of the punched image. Before adding everything to the card I tied some ribbon around the card. Added the flower image and the sentiment. Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by!
