Bloggers Challenge-Color Challenge

This week for the Bloggers Challenge, our group mom Lisa challenged us to use Kiwi, Blue and White.  Well, I started off really well- I made a BG piece from the Technique Junkies called Water Colored Glimmer Mist- using Key Lime, Blue Skies and a spritz of Graphite.  Hmmmmm
The image just ate my blue!  Is is barely visable- but it is there!

I wanted to use the Artistic Outpost stamps I won last month-this set is called The Outpost.  (I entered the Referral program on their blog for just using a set on my blog and posting on SCS, and I got very, very lucky- there are many very talented ladies that post their artwork there….).
I used Wild Wasabi- because I do not have Kiwi cardstock, and the white just drowned out the main panel, so I went to the dark side and added black instead- to add white into the card, I added the white as paper piecing for the house.   
My next card will be a Michelle Zindorf like scene with this image- if you have not visited Artistic Outpost before- you will be in for a treat!!! 
Here is the link to view the other Kiwi/Blue/White projects by the Bloggers Challenge group this week.
Thanks for stopping by- Have a great day!
