Happy Friday Peoples!!  And with Friday comes the Just for Fun® color challenge!  This week Sandy challenged us to use the following colors:

Of course, my colors look NOTHING like the challenge!! REALLY!! I did try!!  And I just realized that I must be stuck in a creative mode.  I made another tag....with a silhouette.....and butterflies!!

Pretty straight forward on this.  Started with a vanilla shipping tag and pulled out the  Distress Inks. Shabby Shutters (that was my "lime" green) was sponged along the bottom with a touch of Mustard Seed.  Tumbled Glass was sponged along the top portion of the tag.  I stamped the Wildflower Silhouette from Just For Fun® with Walnut Stain and then did some generation stamping with the image to add the background shadows. The edges of the tag were distressed and sponged using Walnut Stain. The Small Butterflies were stamped on a first attempt tag (cough, cough) using Mustard Seed, Broken China and Walnut Stain.  They were cut out and adhered with rolled glue dots along the body only.  Tiny pearls were colored a light lime green with my copics and added to the bodies of the butterflies.  The sentiment "friends" was stamped along the edge with Broken China ink.  I paper pierced the flight trail and last but not least, the great fibers from my friend Melody completes the tag!

I think I am going to have to do another project with these colors this weekend.  BUT!! I need to try and stay more to the brighter tones of these colors!! HEY!! I should get points for not totally bailing out on the challenge! (Yes, I do try and justify my less than stellar creations).  Lucky for you all, there is lots of inspiration to be found from the other Just for Fun® team members!


Remember! You do NOT have to use Just for Fun stamps to play along (although, we'd love to see what you do with them, if you've got them!!).  Just link your creation on the Just For Fun Blog using Mr. Linky. 

Thanks for stopping by again today!  Remember to make time for some creativity over your weekend!
