Whew! I wish it was that simple. Maybe I wasn't suppose to play in the challenge today. I really should of gotten ready for my class tomorrow. I almost gave up making this card but I wanted to try the marble technique. I was in the same boat as Lesley (Marleygo) with just a couple of reinkers, so I had to play with these colors. These colors are out of my comfort zone.
The technique challenge for today was called The Marble Technique. We were to use marbles and reinkers to use as background paper. I chose brilliant blue and passion pink. I followed the tutorial instructions, but after having it all done. I had a hard time trying to figure out what stamp to use. I wanted it simple, so I found this stamp. I colored the sentiment with Marvy brush markers onto white c/s. I layered the sentiment and also used the piercing tool. I used the ms butterfly punch and added rhinestones for the body. I REALLY struggled with this card today. But at least I had the marbles on hand. I hope you like it. Thanks for the fun challenge. Have a great day!
What do you think?
*After looking at my card again, I should of left the piercing off the white part.

Struggle? Where? I love these colors and they are right in my comfort zone. It's funny you have reinkers for colors you're uncomfortable with. Maybe your subconscious is telling you something, lol. I think this turned out great, Bonnie!
