The Dreaded Red

Why the title? Today is Just For Fun color challenge day and one of the colors is RED - I keep telling myself to just embrace the red... embrace the red... embrace the red... (I did peak ahead at the next few color challenges and there is not red in sight - Yippee)

Today's colors are:So red - I looked at my Just for Fun stamps and went for the obvious - Cardinals are red:

I blended the bird with different colors of red distress ink, the flower and leaves are blended with DI also. The background is antique linen ink direct to paper and then corduroy DI on Tim's wood grain texture folder.

I am sure the rest of the design team was much more successful with the red than me - so give them a visit! REMEMBER - play along and you could win a $50 Just For Fun gift certificate, see the blog for more details.

Happy Creating!


The Stuff:
Stamps - All Just for Fun - Large Cardinal, Brushed Floral, Background Block, Thank You
Other - Tim Holt Sizzix Texture Folder, Ranger Distress and Archival Inks
