Pizzazz in Elements

What a nice surprise I got on Sunday night when Betty who hosts the color challenge on Tuesday's over at Splitcoaststampers asked me to help out and make a sample using the challenge colors for this week.  I almost said no because I haven't gotten my new in colors yet.  But since you can substitute colors that are fairly close I went ahead and did it.  It couldn't be posted until after 11pm last night so needless to say, I'm a little tired today. 

The colors for this challenge CC281 are all new Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight and Concord Crush.  The neutral I picked was white.  The only color I have at the moment, is Daffodil Delight.  I colored white taffeta in it  by taking a sponge dauber and putting the ribbon under it on the pad and dragging it along.  Then I just let it dry.  The background piece is actually Eggplant Envy that I ran through the big shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder which I had covered with versamark.  Then I embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I really like the effect, it made it come out darker like Concord Crush and it looks like ceramic.  Elements of style was the set I used and  last but not least the dessert this week was to use dew drops.  I do have some of those and if you look closely they are on a few leaves.  Hope you like and don't forget to leave a comment and get your name in the draw for some free SU toys.
