SIP #60 Color Challenge

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Hope your Monday went off without a hitch!  Since it's Tuesday I'm back over with Stamp, Ink, Paper with my Color Challenge DT Card.  

This week I decided to use my Swirly Bird stamp set.  I have to be honest that when the new Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog came out I loved the coordinating dies to this set and preordered them but not the stamp set. What was I thinking?? lol  I started seeing some fabulous cards posted with the Stamp set so of course I had to have it.  I went pretty messy and whimsical with this one but I love how it turned out.. although this is totally not my usual style!

I started with an Elegant Eggplant Cardstock A2 cardstock base and added a top layer of Smokey Slate that measured 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" for a very skinny purple border.  I stamped some of the scribble flowers in Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder and added a few leaves in Smoky Slate.  The splatters were stamped with Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder.  I cut out two  Elegant Eggplant Swirly Scribbles Flowers and stacked them to add some dimension.  I added them with the awesome Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I also used my a Stampin' Up! Marker to add some splatters in Blackberry Bliss, unfortunately this is a retired color but I really LOVE it so it's not going away for me!  lol  The sentiment is from the new Thoughtful Branches stamp set that just landed at my doorstep!  I just love the font in these gorgeous sentiments in this stamp set!  I stamped the You're in my Thoughts sentiment in Elegant Eggplant.  Lastly I added 5 clear dew drops from Pretty Pink Posh with my fine tip glue pen.  I hope you love this as much as I do.  I'm really growing to love messy!  lol

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Below is a list of the products used. Since both the Swirly Bird and Thoughtful Branches stamp sets are available in bundles, I've linked them that way as well!  Blessings,  Tina
