One More Challenge

I keep looking for challenges to enter - ones that really picque my interest - i.e. ones that have prizes.  I was searching this morning and found The Play Date Cafe.  The challenge was a color challenge.

I used techniques that I learned in both Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry online class and the recent Stretch Your Stamps.  This is my card.

To make this card, I used a sketch we did in Linda Howard's class last week.  I formed the card from a piece of orange Recollections cardstock.  I cut the four yellow pieces from a piece of yellow Recollections cardstock.  Again, Recollections for the pink.  I sponged Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink on a piece of white cardstock and stamped the image over it with a Martha Stewart stamp and Archival Ink.  I used the same stamp and the Squeezed Lemonade ink to stamp the images on the smaller yellow cardstock.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  The twine is American Crafts.
