Color Throw Down – Card Challenge

This is the first of a number of challenges between me, Kathy and Deborah . That Kathy sure knows how to throw down color – she ought to do it at least once a month with us.
The idea of the “Color Throw down” is to make a card using a number of copics that do not blend!! YES! You can make a gorgeous coloring card without having to pay a fortune on copics, to have all those matching colors.

Here is the sketch and the copic colors we have to use.

Visit Kathy’s blog for more details on the challenge and join the fun! A random winner will get a great price!

Now this is a real challenge for me, since my style is not coloring and I definitely love paper piecing and distressing. So here is what I found out. Try using colors on kraft! Great vintage look when not used on bright white paper.

So here is my card:

and a closer look

Now here is a sneak peek on the cards of the rest of the team
