Bloggers' Challenge -- 1/18/08

The Challenge this week was to use River Rock, Real Red, Blue Bayou and a neutral. I love River Rock, one of this year's new In Colors.....but, find it incredibly difficult to use, although I often see beautiful samples posted. I knew that this would be a real challenge!!!!

Well, just this morning, I finally had a chance to cut my new rubber, and was determined to use one of the new sets: Embrace Life. It's been sitting on a side table, uncut and neglected for a few weeks! Still not crazy about the combo, but it came out ok. Not a favorite, but it will do....what do YOU think?
Stamps: Embrace Life, Paisley Background
Inks: Blue Bayou, Jet Black StazOn, River Rock
CS: Natural Ivory, Blue Bayou, Real Red, River Rock
Misc: Red Watercolor Crayon, Aqua Brush, Red Watercolor Pencil, Corner Rounder, Wide Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Ivory 1/2 Pearl (Pretties Kit), Mini Glue Dot
Hope you'll take a few minutes to check out the other Blogger's ideas......our list of participants is growing. Can't wait to check them out myself!

Oh I just LOVE this card. Even though you and I find it hard at times to use River Rock ;-) I think you did a fabulous job. And I love the pearl in the center of the flower, what a nice touch!

Look at you getting all caught up and stuff! LOL. You did a fabulous job on all the cards. I love this layout. And again I am surprised at how nice these colors look. Funny I said I would never use them again, but almost did last night - I held off though.
