Try Out a Color Challenge!

It's Tuesady!! Today we have another fantastic Try It Out Tuesday challenge from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design to jump start your creativity! This week's challenge {TIOT50} is a color challenge! My *almost* favorite type of challenge {sketches are #1 of course!}. The colors for this week's gorgeous inspiration are aqua, coral, and either white or cream. My coral is on the darker side, this is actually the berry color from PTI; it's comparable to Cameo Coral from SU -- but prettier. For my image I chose Spunkette, one of the original Elisabeth Bell for SCACD images from Sampler Edition #1. She is SUCH a darling little fairy, I adore her long, sweet wings, beautiful flower outfit and flowing hair.

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. After she was colored up, I cut her out with snips, layered with Classic Circle Nestabilities, and put together the mats and layers. The rest is all patterned paper {Basic Grey and PTI}, ribbon and faux stitching! Remember, the Ranger Inkssentials white gel pen is the bestest!! I loves 'em, they alllllllllllways work, woohoo! Kaisercraft pearls to finish it off and she is PERFECT, another gorgeous girl from the minds of Elisabeth and Susana!

I incorporated a sketch with this week's challenge too OF COURSE, you know how much I love sketches!! This is TESC97 from this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. You KNOW I love Taylor's inspiration, always tops on my list when I need a good sketch!! Here's it is for reference:
