Embellish Parties Color Challenge

The most recent challenge at Embellish Magazine is to create a party-themed card/project using the colors: black, white, red, and kraft. The sponsor this time around is DeNami Design, and there's a FABULOUS prize up for grabs!!!! Click HERE for all of the details and to see the amazing creations of all of the other participants!

This could be used as a card for just about any occasion OR as an invitation. Just include the party details (date, time, location, etc.) on the inside!

I created the design on the panel by repeatedly stamping one of the images from "For the Love of Dots" (Practicing Creativity)! Then, I colored in a pattern using my red and black Copic Sketch Markers! I had such a blast working with this stamp set!!!! I LOVE to color---I find it to be so relaxing. I could honestly sit and color these dots for HOURS on end! (And...I just might do that! Ha!) I can't wait to make more creations with this set using different colors, patterns, and dot combinations! FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

The sentiment is also from "For the Love of Dots." The outline of each letter is made up of teeny tiny dots----isn't that super cute?!?! I filled it in with my Startdust Clear Glitter Pen to give it some sparkle!

Thoughts? Leave me a comment!! I'd love to hear from you!

Stunning. Just stunning. The red, the tan, the everything. I love the way you colored the dots to create a pattern. I love the dots that frame the sentiment. Wonderful, wonderful.

Very pretty Lisa!! Send me an email about the Rocky Mtn. Rubber thing, I'm not sure I will be able to make it. I have to study for finals that weekend.
