I love the colors that Kim chose for our Color Challenge this week: Island Indigo, Pool Party and Lucky Limeade with a dessert of piercing. I'm a big blue fan so I had fun with these colors. I had seen this cool tree when I was looking at items on Saturday's Inspiration site-Jennspendants. I punched a mask and used a sponge to make my background. I inked my stamp with Limeade then used a Chocolate Chip marker for the trunk and branches. Unfortunately I got a smear on my white section so I ended up cutting it to a much smaller size and rounding the corners. I didn't have a circle pattern for piercing so I used a heart shaped one and shifted it around my sponged circle. I used the Striped ef to emboss my Island Indigo piece. I rounded the corners and used my piercing mat pack to pierce corner accents. I made a brad bow using some retired Blue Bayou stitched ribbon and a star brad. My sentiment was stamped on a punched Modern Label then masked with a Word Window and sponged with Limeade.
