Celebrate - The Challenge #68

Happy Monday!

Time for a new challenge

As you see, it's a color challenge this week!

Love that color combo! 
That photo also reminds me of Mary Engelbreit products.  

Check out how all the Design Team used those beautiful colors:

Monthly Featured Designer --  Greta Hess from ggnursecreations
Weekly Guest Designer---Sheri Gilson from Paper Crafty's Creation

Make sure to leave each one of my fabulous teammates and our guest designers some blog love!  We love comments too!

For my card I did some watercoloring, stenciling and sponging ---
I finally was able to watch all the stenciling videos in the Stamp Nation Stenciling class and decided to do some myself.  I stenciled on top of my watercolored background and then I moved the stencil around a bit adding some extra little squared circles inside some of the larger ones.

I used Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberries distressed inks for the watercoloring, the sponging through the stencil and also to create paper for the butterflies.  The top layer of the butterflies is an ombre effect. The sentiment, Celebrate Artsy and stencil, Square Dance from Stamplorations.  If the sentiment looks a little messy, it's suppose to be.  ;) The butterflies are Impression Obsession and the banner is Paper Sweeties.  I finished off the card with a few silver sequins.

I had a blast using this bright color combo!  Now it's your turn to 'WOW' us and link up your color inspired project in the Inlinkz on Lesley's blog!
