You're Sweet -- Color Throwdown #327

Hey Everyone!  I'm popping in today to show you a card for this week's Color Throwdown and this week's Simon Says Stamp 'anything goes' challenge.  I had some time after a bit of organizing (which I'm convinced was really only moving piles around), so I thought I would reward myself with some card making.  I have a few art journal entries to show you as well from the Documented Life Project 2015, but I just haven't taken the pictures yet.  Trust me, I've been keeping up even if my stuff isn't very good from week to week.

My card today uses a set from the January Studio Calico Card Kit.  I'm not quite sure if I'm in love with these kits yet. . .the jury is still out.  I've only used the stamp from this kit and managed to use some goodies from a past Simon Says Stamp Kit (those I do love).  I sprayed over a stencil with Copic marker BG49, and colored my fruit with Inktense pencils.  I still need to play around with those some more.  I don't believe I've very good at them, but they are interesting to me.

Stamps:  January 2015 Studio Calico set
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Paper:  turquoise cardstock, TE Sugar Cube
Accessories:  Inktense pencils, black embossing powder, SS Moroccan Stencil, purple twine, foam tape

Thanks for stopping in!
