Where is the Red?

Well, I tried, but I just couldn't make it work. I tried a red clip, a red flower, a red eye..... so I didn't post this at the Hoedown. BUT - you must head over there to see the beautiful and fun cards that the Digi Team made for the Color Challenge this week at the Hambo Hoedown! We have teals and reds and whites and ivories. Lots of Kraft paper here! But, alas, no red!
I stamped my  Seahorse and sentiment (Hambo Stamps) in Encore Metallic Silver pigment ink and then embossed with White Detail EP. I colored in with a Teal water based marker. The chipboard flower is embossed with Ocean Spark EP. A little paper tearing, a little "seaweed" fiber, and this horse is ready to ride~!

Did you know that you get an awesome FREE digi every time you play at the Hoedown? I love the Laughing Digi for this week. Be sure to check it out~!

This is sooo cute, Judy...your little sea horse is adorable and I love how you created the water!!!! I am sooo excited to be on the RN DT with you...Congrats and welcome!!!

Bonnie said...

Oh Judy you are so funny! I supposed the little seahorse could have red eyes since he has been in the water haha! This is a marvelous card even if it doesn't quite match the challenge!!

This is cute and creative with the water. The clip is a great touch and something I never can do well. Darling card Judy.

Woo Hoo! Congrats on making the Rubbernecker DT!!! I just saw it on their blog and ran right over to congratulate you!!! What fun that'll be!! Great card here...yeah, I'm not sure how to get the red to work on it, either!! That seahorse is a hoot!

Eiglas said...

I actually agree with you. The red wasn't needed and would have spoiled a perfect card!

Julia Aston said...

The embossed swirls are so perfect on this sea themed card and I love your blue waves!

I just love everything about this one! The seahorse is such an eye-catcher, but those waves just put this one over the top! Great job, as always, Judy! :)

And congratulations on your new DT gig! They're lucky to have you! (I speak from experience!)

Love the sea horse! (Betcha could have added a teeny red crab in that seaweed to make it work for the Hoedown!)
