Belles 'n Whistles Warm Color Challenge

 Good Morning, and Happy "Labor Day" for those of you in USA.

Today we have a brand new challenge over at the Belles 'n Whistles blog.  I think you're going to love this one, I know I love it, probably because this was my challenge idea.  ha ha

We are having a color challenge.  With September, comes change, kids going back to school, apple picking time, and at least here in NY state the leaves on the trees start to show signs of changing colors.  So I wanted to do a color challenge using  "Summer Sun" - "Real Red" - and "Olive Green"  trying to keep the colors as close to these as possible.

So there you have it,  do you think you're up for the challenge?  Use your favorite Belles 'n Whistles Stamps, and incorporate these colors, and show us what you have....

This is what I came up with using this cool color combination.

Aren't these two just the cutest little ones you've ever seen?  I really had a lot of fun coloring this image.  What do you think of my apples?  Do you want to know how I did that?  It's an clip art image of an apple, that I very carefully placed side by side, in order to make a line of apples, I then printed, colored, and cut them out.  After cutting them out, I used an embossing folder.  I used the very same apple to create my own "apple paper". So, as you can see, if I'm not coloring these sweet images, or making cards, I'm usually playing with stuff in Adobe Photoshop. 

Alright, that's all from me for now, check back later today 3PM EST and I will show you the 2nd sneak peek of Elisabeth Bells newest Digi image, to be released on Friday.  If you can guess what this image is, on the Digi Bells DT blog, you could win it....  =)
Now wouldn't that be sweeeeeeet????
