The Artful Stampers Blog Hop #117

This year has started a bit later for our blog hop challenges and we are doing them a little different. Instead of linking all the hops we are using hashtags to link together, so some are posted on Facebook, others on Instagram etc. We are also just doing colour challenges for the time being.

This is what I came up with:

CASE'd from Michelle Lupton
I know the colours we were given are quite bold but I muted them down by watercoloring and 2nd gen stamping. I used Elegant Eggplant for my sentiment and dashes but the colour is so dark that it looks like black. I also used a few neutral colours for may card stock which may be bending the rules just a little. (wink)
