Hot & Spicy - Color Challenge
What a fun challenge this is. Over at Less is More color challengethis time the colors are "hot & spicy". As soon as I saw this I knew exactly what
stamp I wanted to use.
We recently took a trip over to Hatch New Mexico to pick up some chile
peppers (they are the best from there), once you see those strings of
red chile you know that Fall is here.
First off this challenge is all about simple or less is more as the
name states so I kept these cards as simple as possible.
The string of chiles is a stamp from Mark's Finest Stamps, I bought this several years ago with the intention to use it on a Christmas card. Living in Arizona I thought it worked well.
I colored the chiles with my Zig Clean Color brush markers, I tried
to leave some yellow showing but got a little too heavy handed with the red but it still looks good. The Merry Christmas is a Hero Arts stamp
that I stamped in black and then heat embossed clear.
to it, so I stamped it and heat embossed it in gold. I colored this
one using several Copic markers.
I fussy cut out the peppers but am going to work on trying to
scan in the image and cut it out with my Cricut Explore or Silhouette Cameo.
I would like to mass produce these so it would be very helpful if I can
get that figured out.
So what do you think, is that Hot & Spicy enough for you.
Leave me a comment and let me know which you like better.
I am so sad to say that when I went to link up Mark's Finest Stamps I
discovered that they have closed, such a shame but glad I
have the stamps I do have.
