Friday Mashup! Sketchy Colors!

Hello and Happy Friday!! It's time for another fun Friday Mashup Challenge!! This week, Lesley gives us a great sketch and lovely colors. So here is your challenge:

  1. Make a project using the colors Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Early Espresso, Old Olive, and Whisper White

  2. Make a card using the sketch (above)

  3. Or Mash them Up and make a project using these colors and this sketch!

In classic Mashup fashion, Icombined the challenges for this card:

My card base is early espresso, and I added a layer of pink pirouette from the Subtles Pattern Paper Stack. I then added a square of riding hood red retired dsp, but it was too plain, so I created my own dp. I stamped randomly from Friends Never Fade and Fabulous Phrases on whisper white then placed that over the riding hood red layer. I cut out a circle with the big shot and circles die, and used my markers to color another image from Friends Never Fade. I sponged the edges and added brads from the neutral collection. My ribbon is from a retired "ribbons original" but looks similar to the current grosgrain. I used my modern label punch, adding a layer of espresso on the edges. The final detail is a couple of basic jewel pearls colored with my pink marker.

This is a great challenge...and I can't wait to see what you come up with!! Be sure to link your card to the Friday Mashup blog and use keyword FM15 in your online gallery.
