1st Crafty Secret Challenge at Paperee

June 20, 2009

Julie has posted a challenge in the "We Love Crafty Secrets" group over at Here is a little excerpt from Julie's challenge:

CONTRASTING COLORS! Pick your favorite color and then use it's complement--red/green, blue/orange, purple/yellow, etc. Also feel free to use any shade in between as I did--turquoise/muted orange.

And to add a little excitement we are also throwing in a prize. As Julie will be away on Friday, I will do a random drawing from the names of all those who have participated in this challenge and the winner will receive a "Birthday Kids" stamp set!!! So hurry over to Paperee, we would love to see what you create.

Here is the project that I made just for this special challenge. Image is from the Garden Girls stamp set of Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps, which was stamp using Tuxedo Black Memoto Ink on white cs. I then colored the image with various Copic markets. This was then matted onto a DP from the Lime Rickey Paper Pad of BasicGrey. For the frame I used another DP from the same set and die cut/embossed it with the Classic Frame from Spellbinders. I then sponge some Faded Jeans distressing ink onto the frame. Flowers were die cut from the Scalloped Edge Frame, also from Spellbinders. Then I added some blue rhinestones to the centre of the flower and then punched some ferns from a Martha Stewart punch and placed them around the flowers.

Now, don't forget to visit us at and join in on the fun.
