Summer Card Camp

I just hate it when I sign up for something and then can't fully participate.  Such has been the case with Summer Card Camp.  This is the last week and I finally just told myself that I WILL participate this week. 

Today's assignment is a color challenge and I couldn't resist because these are the colors I think of when I think of where we live.
I put off my shower to head into the studio to try and fnd something to match...Not quite but almost.  The flower by Rubbernecker Stamps, actually looks much better IRL but it's overcast here today...seems there's a tropical storm playing around in the Atlantic today so the light is awful.  (go away!)

 I clear heat embossed  the image.  I tried the fingerinking technique on the flower that Jennifer McGuire introduced last week...yes, I did pay attention.   It reminds me of fun.  I used Copics to color the leaves as they were a bit narrower for fingerinking.

Be sure to scroll down for my CAS Clean and Simple project.  Two posts today...woo,hooo

Such nice colours... my fave really. And wow! Fingers used to colour the flower - brilliant. Really fresh and cheerful card. There is something about blues and greens that makes one's senses relax.
