OTWC Challenge #20

There are just not enough hours in the day to get to all the challenges I love doing. Kim Wilson, over at Off The Wall Craftiness, is one such place I draw inspiration from. I don't get to play there every week, but I at least check out her inspiration photo. Look at this beauty!
Here is my card, and I always complain about purples. I just can't get the colors right in my photos. This came out looking more wine. Sorry, Kim. My image is from TLC Creations and I colored it with Copic markers. My card stocks are Pure Luxury, from Gina K. Designs. Sponging is done in Baja Breeze from SU! I added an organza ribbon and blue gems as my accents. I did a second image of the raspberries and cut and popped the berries, and then applied a thick coat of Glossy Accents.

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you soon. Time to run to work for a bit. Oh BTW, Kim is also selling the new Ippity Stamps by Unity! Check them out here!

The coloring on this card is just magnifico!!! Those berries look totally life-like and luscious! I love the use of labels 4 and the Baja sponging looks wonderful on these plum tones! I'm glad you take time to play so many challenges because I love seeing what you create!!

Mary Anne,
Your coloring is just brillant on this one and everyone for that matter. I did look at all your post I've been missing. They are wonderful.

No problem Mary Anne! I know how that is :) Thats why I have to use photoshop to edit the colors sometimes because they are so off when its not natural light and since I craft at night its never possible :) Lovely coloring and im happy to have you playing again! Good luck!!!
