Sunday Stamps! Challenge #117

Hello, crafty friends! Happy New Year!  How can it already be  January 3, 2016?   Time just keeps flying by!  Today is the first Sunday of the new year, so you know what that means...Yes, a new challenge at Sunday Stamps!  And its an awesome color challenge.  Take a look.


I actually ended up making two cards, and couldn't really decide which one I liked the best so I am sharing both of them here for you!  I used a new 2016 Sale-a-bration stamp set called Honeycomb Happiness.  Earn this item FREE with a $50 order from my online store starting 1/5/16! The images in this SAB stamp set are so cute! And coloring them is a breeze!  Given the colors in the challenge, I chose to use the ice cream cone image.  Who doesn't like ice cream, right?

For my first card, I decided to make a watercolor background using my Aqua Painter and Melon Mambo and Crumb Cake Ink refills. After it dried, I added circles using my white craft pad and sponge daubers.

For my 2nd card, I played with the same colors except I also used added another new item called the Confetti Textured Embossing Folder available in the upcoming 2016 Occasions Catalog. 

Supplies for both cards:

Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog
