CYS-Challenge Your Stash- Color challenge

For the July CYS group, we are challenged by Barbara (Bejoyce at SCS) to use any previous color challenge from SCS weekly challenges.

 I used SCS Color Challenge #431 Midnight Muse (I used Navy), Rich Razzleberry and Gumball Green.
  On my sidebar, there is a link to colors that coordinate with Copics, ets....and I referred to the list and found , for Copics, Navy = B95 &97, Razzleberry = RV63 & 66, and Gumball Green YG63 & 67.
  I stamped the image from Technique Junkies (SD867) in Black Nuvo Hybrid ink. I colored carefully- the leaves first, then the birds using the Copics. I added some outline accents in C2.
I added twine and the sequins and called the card done!

 My youngest has 3 Bachelors degrees- one in Chemistry.  I love buying sets with beakers, etc...but she always tells me there is something wrong with the equation, or the sentiments etc. (And, I know as a nurse how irritating it is when someone gets something wrong- like on a TV show....)  Well, there you go- this set speaks of atoms and I do not know how anything can be wrong with it : )  Wahoo!

The CYS group can be located here.  List mom Barb had the brilliant idea- lets use our stash items- with a monthly theme, I am sure finding no shortage of items to use in my creative space for this challenge...!!! Even those in the 'get rid of ' pile....... HERE is a link to all of the July Cards at Splitcoaststampers for this challenge.

 The group says closed- but we ARE open to new members!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow a chemistry degree. How smart! This card is indeed perfect. I love this stamp myself and own it. I think you've inspired me to make this for my son in law who just got a new job.
