KWerner Color combo #51

I am addicted to color challenges. I was never a fan, but they are really pushing me in directions I wouldn't have gone by myself. On that note, here is the one from Kristen Werner. This card is a combo of many challenges. It really all came together. Stamp TV color challenge was use brown and any other colors, so this worked great for that as well.
I also used the Stamp TV sketch for this week.
Here is my take on the challenge combos.
What do you think? I am really loving how it turned out. If you can believe it all of the ink is brayered to get the different effects, but it is all from Chocolate Chip, More Mustard and Regal Rose inks. Kristina had strict rules to use only and all of the colors in the color challenge. Thre is white on this card around the sun and in between the sky and ground there is a faint line or white. I didn't really intend for that to happen, but I liked the effect it created. It ended up looking like my lions were cuddling at dusk. The colors are always warm and wonderful at dusk around here, so I am sure that is the way in Africa as well.
I did all of the lions with flock as well. I used a dark yellow (more mustard), brown (chocolate chip) and dark pink (regal rose). I love to death the quickie glue pen. It makes the flock so much fun to put on the animals. It also gives them such a great feel and look on the card. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has an animal stamp set. (If you don't have an animal stamps set I would highly recommend that as well!) This was so stinking fun to make. I have never really brayered like this, but I love how it turned out.
This is for one of my good friends for their anniversary. The inside says never be the first to let go of a hug. Isn't that so much fun! How prefect for an anniversary gift.
It's a good life!
