Color Challenge!

Its our first challenge from Creative Inspirations!!! Our challenge was to use these great paints to make a card and it needed to be YELLOW, LAVENDAR, and GREEN.  I had just gotten some stamps from Verve’s latest release when we found out about the challenge and I knew what my card was going to be!!!  I actually used 6 colors to make this card: 

Yellow: Citrus and Sunshine

Lavendar: Plum and Amethyst

Green:  Sage and Evergreen

I stamped the image on twice, once on the card and once on separate cardstock.  I painted both sets of images completely with the lighter shade of each color.  Then I used a feather brush to drag the darker color around the edges of each petal.  I then cut out the center of each flower and attached it with a foam dimensional.  All that was left to do was paint the edges of each rectangle, do some scoring, and add a bow and some brads (Certainly Celery- Stampin Up!)!  It was pretty easy!  The paints have a great shimmer and very deep colors.  They work very well on Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock.  To see what our other DT members came up with:
