Limited Supplies...You'd better put on your Sunglasses...

Boy, this card is BRIGHT! It's a little out of my comfort zone, but isn't that what a challenge is about?

I decided to do some challenges...I've been sooo busy that I haven't really had time lately. So I started with the Limited Supply Challenge from SCS. The limits were as follows:
1. Choose one or more stamps that haven't seen ink in a long time.
2. Choose an old sketch challenge.
3. Choose an old color challenge.
4. Choose 1 or 2 embellishments. Try and choose something you've been hoarding.
5. Use any tools.

So I chose this Stampendous stamp I bought in February called Witch Shoes, and I have NEVER used it. So today's the day! The color combo I chose (Yikes!) is Tempting Turquose, Apricot Appeal, & Cameo Coral, and I chose an old sketch challenge (kinda flipped it and made my own sketch...oops!) to try for this.

I stamped the Witch Shoes stamp in Palette Hybrid Noir on Pearlized White cardstock, and then colored with markers and Ink Pads w/ a Blender Pen. I mounted the image on Basic Black CS and stitched around the edges.

I ran the Turquoise panel through my Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls Embossing folder for some texture, and then rubbed the edges on my Palette Hybrid Noir inkpad. I thought it looked better mounted on black so I did that with a tiny border. I also colored the middle set of shoes with the Sakura Quickie Glue Pen, and sprinkled w/ Dazzling Diamonds.

I layered the Coral piece on Papertrey White Cardstock, and added Making Memories Brads (which I have been hoarding!!) to the corners.

The Apricot card base looked a little sad so I inked up my Print Pattern background with Tangerine Colorbox Chalk Ink, and stamped that, then accented the corners with my Black Sakura Glaze Pen.

I tried to pick the sketch and color combo that was the least "me" I could really make a challenge of it. I hope you don't hate it...Got something more "me" for tomorrow.

Love ya....stay tuned for the challenge...I'll post it on Monday to celebrate Back to School!!

I love the LO for this one! I'm also impressed with how well executed it is even with all the bright colors. Brights aren't my first choice to work with, but you totally did them justice.
