Anything goes with color

Hi friends!  Welcome back for another fun challenge at 613 Avenue Create  and we have another "anything goes" challenge with a color twist  because of the Earth Day. You have to use earht tones in your project. We can't wait to see what you create this week!

Hola amigas! Bienvenidas otra vez a otro reto divertido en 613 Avenue Create y tenemos otro reto de 'todo se vale" con un cambio en el color,  para este proyecto tienes que usar colores tierra, beige, cafe, naranja y verde. No podemos esperar a ver tus creaciones para esta semana!

I made a Tent Fold Card (there you can find the tutorial, but it is with European measurements so I made one with american measurements). I used Kraft paper, brown - orange cardstock from The Recollections which I embossed. The sentiment of Unity Stamp of the week.

Hice una Tent Fold Card (ahi pueden encontrar el tutorial, pero esta hecho con medidas europeas asi es que me tome la tarea de hacer uno con medidas americanas). Use pape kraft para la base, el papel anaranjado-cafe es The Recollections el cual texturize.. El sentimiento es de Unity Stamp of the week.

Rick St. Dennis - Joanie the Flower Child - 613 Create Avenue - Tent fold card 3

We are sponsored by Rick St. Dennis. I chose the digi stamp called Joanie the flower child; I printed her on watercolor paper; colored her with prismacolors; I used gamsol to blend the colors; I put perfect peals at the center of the flowers, at her necklace, the band at her hair and the arm and here she is!!!!

El dia de hoy estamos patrocinado por Rick St. Dennis. Yo elegi la estampa digital llamada Joanie the flower child, la imprimi en watercolor paper, la pinte con prismacolors y use el gamsol para difuminar los colores. Al final le puse perfect pearls en las flores, en su collar, la cinta del cabello y la de su brazo .... y aqui esta!
