Bloggers Challenge 185


This week Bloggers Challenge is a color challenge. We are to use the colors yellow, brown, and green in our art. I decided to follow the sketch  given by the Critter Sketch challenge for the format. The first thing that came to my mind with these colors was something in nature. However, I was more in a steampunk type mood and this is what I came up with. I used paper from my Graphic 45 Steampunk pad for the main image and the strip behind her head. The larger, yellow background was embossed in a Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is from Tim Holt's Odds and Ends stamps. The green card base complements the yellow and brown of  the card I think. Anyway, this was a fun change from the past weeks of holiday stamping.
