Pure Innocence Heart Stripes

I had a little time on my hands tonight and wanted to enter a few challenges and use another of the new Pure Innocence stamps that were sneaked this morning. This one is "Heart Stripes". Cutey, isn't she? Well you can pick her up on Wednesday night when My Favorite Things has its December release.

I love every single stamp set that is in this release and am so glad that I was asked to be a guest DT. I have been having so much fun using them. If you want to see some more examples of the sets being released head on over to Kim's blog. At 11 AM each morning she's posting links to all the sneaks being made that day.

The first challenge I wanted to do was the Color Throwdown #70. I wanted to do it because for me it was a real challenge to combine Dusty Durango, Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive. This is not a combo I would ever come up with on my own so I got to stretch and grow a little and actually liked the way it turned out. I used the Sweet Sunday sketch #46, now that was much easier to do than combining the colors. The last challenge is the Crazy for Challenges week 13 challenge to Get Punchy, for that I used the Martha Stewart Lacey Heart border punch on the olive cs.

Here are the rest of the deets: The card's base is SU Dusty Durango, the dp is from Imaginisce.

The image (oh cute is she?) is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics (stripes are olive and purple in case you can't tell), there are stickle highlights on her buttons and barette and hearts on the pockets. Her jumper is paper pieced with a scrap of SU Kiwi Kiss paper. The corners are orange Candy Dots. I took the ribbon from my stash as well as the heart button it on the bow.

Thank you all for stopping and looking. Don't forget to visit Kim's blog to get links to all the other sneak peeks.
