The Cameo Spotlight Challenge #7 ~ Color


Is everyone ready for the next TCS challenge?  Today is the start of the The Cameo Spotlight #7 challenge which is another color challenge!  The colors are apple green, bright orange, rich red, and medium gray.  Of course, neutrals like black, white, and kraft are also included. 


I am completely excited to share that our sponsor today is none other than Paper Smooches!  I'm a HUGE fan of Paper Smooches stamps:)  Each set that Kim Hughes designs and illustrates is so well thought out with tons of stamps that can be mixed and matched.  And the designs are super cute and fun!  Check out The Cameo Spotlight site see what wonderful Paper Smooches prize is up for grabs this challenge!


For my card today, I made a spinner card!  (I cheated a little with the colors by adding the blue, shhhhh!)  My little green man flies down in the spaceship to the awaiting astronaut.  To get that mottled color in the planet, I colored yellow cardstock with an orange Copic marker.  Then I put some colorless blender on a piece of paper towel and rubbed over the colored areas.  The alien, astronaut, and background stars are from the Space Cadet set.  The sentiment is a combo of stamps from Autumn Groves and Surf and Turf.  I have so much fun coloring and fussy cutting those PS images:)  Here are some pics of the spinner in action!


For details on how the spinner works, check out this post.  If you'd like to try this card out for yourself, click here to download the studio file!  {Please review the terms of use for my cut files here}

Mahalo and aloha,
