Smiley from Holy cow this week has sure gone fast! Of course, I did sleep most of the week away and that might have something to do with it. Thursday was a good day without any naps so I must have caught up and I’m feeling so much better.

Since today is Friday that means that it’s also the Just For Fun® Friday Color Challenge. I really enjoyed working with the colors this week. At first I thought ewwwww what can I do . . . and then it all just came together.

Rita a/k/a Smiley from challenged us this week to use


Okay, okay I know you’re saying ewwwww, but trust me . . . . give them a try! I think you’ll be surprised. We would love to have you play along with us!  You don’t have to use Just For Fun® stamps, especially if you don’t have any yet.  However, if you do play along, you might just be the lucky winner of a 25% Discount so you can go shopping!   All you have to do is make a card/project using the above colors and post a direct link using Mr. Linky on the Just For Fun® Blog.

Here’s my card!


I incorporated a few of the techniques that I learned from Wendy Vecchi last weekend. You might also recognize this sketch from Wendy’s book, “make art, studio 490 style II”. I was fascinated by her project on page 16, “you must believe.” I changed the design up to fit what I was working on, but left the general sketch as it was.

Hopefully you can see in this picture, the white shadow of the Wildflower Silhouette.


That’s one of the things I learned last weekend, stamping in white pigment and then inking over the top of it. When I had finished I felt the image was just a little to light and needed the extra pop of block to stand out on the card. Lots of over stamping using a variety of JFF backgrounds. What can I say . . . it was just way too much fun!

Now that you’ve been inspired by my card Smiley from, you should visit the other JFF Designers to see what they’ve done. Everyone has had a different take on the colors and you’ve just got to check them out.

  1. Well, that is gorgeous!!! Love what you used for your colour choices.
    When you say you ‘inked’ over the white stamped image, did you ink with a dye based ink or ink on a brayer?
