Color Create DT card

Hello everyone,

The colors that our very own Sharon has picked for this challenge is Blue, Sand, Silver and Black. The optional extra is Summertime.I have chosen the cutest little stamp by ArtStamps Inc. I have no idea where I bought it from. SORRY! This is the first time that I have inked him up. He is so cute so I don't know why I have not used him yet. I have colored him with my copic marker and my water color pencils. The bullrush has been hand cut ,pieced and then shaded with my chalks. I think it adds just what the card needed for that finished look. I have used a cute little silver snail, sheer ribbon, silver half metal dots and silver dragonfly charm. I have to tell you this color comb gave me a struggle. They were a true challenge for me!! You need to check out the inspiration from the DT for this challenge. The cards they have made are all just STUNNING!! Theses colors really brought out the creativity for the challenge.
We have a new and final member on the DT this week. Her name name is Deanne. She is like a breath of fresh air with her card making. You'll see from her blog that she has a very clean style of card making. Her cards are so beautiful and she rarely uses any stamps. Hop over and check her work out. Waving at Deanne.
