Splitcoast Colors: A Farewell

This week's color challenge at Splitcoaststampers is "A Farewell".  They have called it "A Blushing Peach Crush Pizzazz Parade" - FIVE colors!!  If you read on a little, the dessert option is to only use 3 or 4...but I got 'em all - although the Blushing Bride is a bit of a stretch...

Sweet 'n Sassy

The Blushing Bride is just a little Copic color on the flower petals.

I am NOT a five color person.  Two colors makes me happy - I can usually work with three - but five??!!  I had to find a sketch challenge to help and this sketch from Card Patterns gave me lots of blocks to fill in with color...

BIG NEWS: The downloadable Stampin' Up Copic Chart on my sidebar
has been updated for Copic matches to the brand new in-colors!!!

  • Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Treasured, sentiment from Oh Happy Day
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Concord Crush CS, Pear Pizzazz CS and dsp, Poppy Parade dsp, Peach Parfait dsp
  • Ink: Memento black, copics
  • Accessories: Nestabilities labels, misc gems, 1 3/4" circle punch, Stampin' baker's twine (yes, it's Lucky Limeade but I think it works!)
