Card for Color Chef Challenge #3

Here are the Color Chef Challenge colors over at KJ's Stamp Pad

Here is my card

Just a quick and simple card...I didn't even use any foam tape or foam dots..gasp!
This is a 5x7 card using CTMH's black cardstock. I cut a piece of White Daisy Cardstock 4x7 and random stamped it with the flower images from our new Tickled Pink stamp set using Watermelon, Sunflower and Black ink.
Now this is actually very difficult for me because I am RS challenged! No matter what I do I can never seem to get the 'random' bit right. Soooo I decided to random stamp a larger piece and cut it to 4x7 which seemed to help a bit. Then I cut that piece into 3 and adhered it to my card. I stamped the sentiment and added a couple of bitty brads. I would love to have added some ribbon but I didn't have any watermelon or sunflower colors and the white and black didn't work.
Not my best card but it was a fun challenge and once again I got to use an ink that I had never used before! Thanks Kelly!
I know there are like a bazillion papercraft blogs out there and it is hard to see them all...however if you have never visited Waltzingmouse Makes.. blog then I recommend you take a minute and check it out. This talented lady makes some amazing cards, and crafts, and her photo's of Ireland are amazing. She also said she will be posting a 'how to' on how to use your brass embossing plates in your Cuttlebug soon! Now that sounds like something I would definitely like to learn.
Hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday.

Oh...so pretty. I bagged this challenge for the week. I struggled with the color combo...it ended up in the trash...but your take on it inspires me to try again!

VERY pretty. Love those colors together!!

Do you know about stamping in a visual triangle when you random stamp? You start with your largest image and stamp it three times to make a triangle (not next to each other...just look at it and imagine making the triangle, the images are the "corners." When you finish with your largest image, do the same with the next image and so on, gradually selecting smaller images to "fill in." Don't forget to stamp off the page, too.

Forgive me if you already knew this...but in case you didn't, I wanted to share...

I think you've mentioned that blog before...I subscribed then and agree, she's a fantastic artist!
