SCRSC37: Splashing through Neutrals

[ETA new and improved photo - the other was AWFUL, sorry!]

Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to a brand new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge! This week we have a a colour challenge for you - use neutrals with a splash of colour.  I think I got this a little wrong, as I was thought it was neurals with one colour - oops!!  My colour splash is orange, but you could add as many colours as you want as long as the majority of your card is neutral.

I would also like to wish Sparkle a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!! Hope you have a birthday as wonderful as you, chick! I count my lucky stars every single day that I get to be on your Design Team - thank you!!!!!  You ROCK!!

I used Cruisin' Chloe for my DT make today.   When I update the photo you will be able to see that I used glossy accents along with some glitter on the windcreen and headlights. I applied one layer of gloss and then sprinkled with just a smidgen of glitter. Once that was dry I then applied a 2nd coat of gloss to finish.  It looks really cool IRL!

I also want to let you know that Sparkle is sponsoring Unscripted Sketches #100 this week and you could win one of two SCRS rubber stamps (Scooter Chloe or Swimming Lucy) if you join in.  So why combine our challenge with US#100 and you will have 2 chances to win some lovely SCRS rubbah!

Sparkle Creations challenge is open to all players. Each week a random winner will be chosen, and they will receive a SCRS rubber stamp. [In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation.]

For those who are interested, this card is for sale HERE in my ETSY SHOP.

Do pop along to the rest of the SCRS DT's blogs to take a peek at their awesome challenge creations and don't forget to wish Sparkle a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Thanks for dropping by! Hope you have a great Tuesday!
