ISS Color Challenge and Sponsored Challenge

InStyle Stamps is sponsoring this weeks challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenges  which happens to be a wonderful sketch created by Mindy.  Head on over there to see the gorgeous creations their Design Team made and also to join in this weeks challenge for a chance to win a fabulous prize from InStyle Stamps. 

It is also time for InStyle Stamps monthly Color Challenge.  This month we were given this color swatch to use:  

And here is what I came up with from both of these challenges:
Since I love blue, I used more of that color in my project, with subtle hints of the other colors and I also rotated the sketch to fit the Kissing Birds image.  The birds were paper pieced (the wings and top hat were colored over with my 110-Special Black Copic marker and then placed on with dimensionals).  The organdy Ribbon was colored with my BG01 Copic Marker to match the paper.  

We'd love to see what you come up with for our color challenge!  Head on over to the InStyle Stamps blog for further details.
Remember by shopping through this link: InStyle Stamps you will receive an automatic 5% discount on any stamp purchase you make.

Have a wonderful day!
