Stamping Therapy...

Relaxation means releasing all concern and tension and letting the natural order of life flow through one's being -Donald Curtis

If you haven't tried the SCS Weekly Challenges, you MUST! Every Tuesday Emily posts a new Color Combonation Challenge....these really stretch my limits, as I tend to stick to my tried and true combos and favorite colors. This week it is Bravo Burgandy (not my Fave,) Night of Navy and Brocade Blue...Seriously Wiket Awesome combo!!! I have made 3 for this challenge already, and will probably do more since the paper and ink are out on my table still.

Bravo Burgandy, Night of Navy and Brocade Blue CS and Inks from Stampin' Up! Happy Harmony, Weathered, French Script and Cheesecloth Stamps by Stampin' Up! Sticked Ribbon from Stampin' Up! Silver Mini Brads and Silver Spiral Clip from who knows where. I cut out the flowers and popped them up on dimensionals, then added stickles. I highlighted the word Big with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen by Sakura, the corners of the blue are punched with a Heritage Corner Punch, layers are sponged, and the edges of the scalloped oval is highlighted with stickles as well as the stardust pen. I doodled a swirl w/ a pencil, then used my Mat Pack and Piercer on it, highlighting that witht the Stardust Pen also. There is a Little Tiny Sticky Jewel dotting the "i"
