Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges #55 - Color Challenge: Blue, Orange, Yellow, and Beige



What a week it has been! Zero motivation to craft, issues, and stress have caused me to waste away the week sitting on the computer. And even here I haven't been able to seem to get anything done! My biggest accomplishment of the week was acquiring 5 new Disney movies, 2 of which are currently "in the vault". It's lots of fun reliving these through my son's eyes, though, and I have to admit I'm enjoying myself (maybe more than he is! lol)!

I did manage to get one card made earlier this week for today's new Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge. If you haven't heard, this is one of the last TPSC ever as Kellie has decided to shut down the challenge blog. It is a sad day and a tough decision for her, but the entire team supports her and will be here until the end of February. Today's theme is a color combination and boy, did I groan loudly when I saw it: blue, orange, yellow, and beige? Whaaa? For whatever reason it screams "1970s" to me, but I actually discovered that I own an adorable paper pad from My Mind's Eye called Fine and Dandy with just the colors I needed! Who knew? So I printed off Lil Birthday Pinkette Faith and got to work.

Ms Faith is colored mostly in Copics with a few Prismacolor Art Markers thrown in. She is fussy cut and mounted with foam squares on top of layers and layers of fun! That sketch is from The Sketchy Challenge (#16), and as soon as I saw it I knew it was a must try! They are also holding a DT call so I thought it might be a good time to try for something new. When one door closes, another one opens, right? Well, I can hope so anyway! Along with the MME designer paper, I've used kraft as my beige as well as Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, and Apricot Appeal card stock from Stampin' Up. A doily, a Tim Holtz adage ticket, some flowers and a few pearl flourishes complete the card. I have to say that I am quite pleased with how she turned out! Not bad for a color combo popular the decade I was born!

And speaking of birthdays.... This pretty miss went straight into the mail to my crafty friend and design team teammate, Kathy Curry! Kathy's delightful work can be seen on her blog, Will Stamp For Wine. Happy Birthday, Kathy, and I hope the card hits your mailbox before this post hits your news feed!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E23, E25, E27, R20, Y35, Y38, YR04, YR07) and Prismacolor Art Markers (143, 198).

I'd also like to enter this creation in the following challenges:
- Celebrate the Occasion: #49 - Anything Goes Birthday
- My Time to Craft: #172 - A is for Adorable
- Birthday Sundaes: #42 - Birthday Card with Sentiment
- The Lily Pad: Patterned Paper

Thanks for the visit and stop back this weekend for the much anticipated Sassy Studio Designs FAN-tastic February release!

I love this! The papers are awesome, I would probably never have thought to use all those colors together, but it totally works. I love that cherry blossom flower too.
Sorry you're having a rough week, almost the weekend!

This is so adorable! Great coloring on ms Faith. I had pretty much every Disney movie on VHS...gave them all to my mom. I loved to sit on the couch when mine was a little one and watch them over and over and over! HUGS

Love the colors (orange is my fave), the coloring, the doily, flowers, everything. You are so sweet Regan, thank you so much! I will treasure this for sure!
