DSC#169-Color My World

It is time for another DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge.  This week's challenge was a Color My World challenge design using Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry.  I absolutely love this color combination because it is bright and eye catching.  It makes me think of spring.  So, my first thought of course was the Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set!!

The chick was painted by using Crushed Curry and watercolor techniques.  Super easy and what a great watercolor effect!  The contrast of the Melon Mambo in the matting, and the use of Cherry on Top Designer Paper Series for the banners compliments the coloring of the chic beautifully.  I hope you enjoy this cute 'Hello' card!!

    Honeycomb Happiness

    How Cute is this?!  I love this stamp set Honeycomb Happiness from Stampin' Up!

    It's in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure!



    This stamp set makes it so easy to watercolor!  I had a lot of fun creating the little chick and balloons with my aqua pen.  I used 'Crushed Curry Classic', 'Melon Mambo Classic', 'Island Indigo', and 'Mossy Meadow Classic ink stampin' pads.  The splatter of color in background was created with the 'Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set'




    I stamped the little chick using the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set in 'Crushed Curry Classic' ink.  Balloons were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The leaves were created with 'What I Love Stamp Set'.






    I created the circle opening with the Big Shot using the 'Circles Collection Framelits Dies





    I used the 'Cherry on Top Designer Series' for the banners. Matted card with the matching 'Melon Mambo' Cardstock.  Added dimensional tape on back of circle die cut.





    I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Honeycomb Happiness.





    The inside sentiment of the card was created with the 'Perfect Pairings' Stamp Set featured in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.
