ODBDSLC17 Summer colors Blue Green Yellow

I should be packing up the camper, but I wanted to finish this up and post it before I forget and time gets away! This is the image I was trying to use with last week's sketch at ODBD but it wasn't happening. I was pretty happy that this week's challenge was using the same colors (Blue, Green & Yellow) I was trying to use then and with any ol' layout. I used this challenge to force myself to do something with the image, that was already colored, and the papers, already cluttering my table, rather than bury it or put it all away for another day, month, year.... as it happens to many of the images I've stamped!

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils. I know orange wasn't one of the challenge colors but, I couldn't help coloring the orange, well, orange! The green paper used is actually a little lighter than it shows in this pic, closer to the shade of the bow. The stamp is from the Fruit of the Spirit set from Our Daily Bread Designs. I had been admiring this stamp and the DTs' artwork with it for some time over at ODBD. Last year I won this stamp from Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine when it was part of the "Whose Stamp is it Anyway?" contest!

Stamp: ODBD Fruit of the Spirit Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Paper: SU, DCWV
Other: Prismacolor pencils, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder-Divine Swirls, Spellbinders Classic Ovals, Bow-Easy, Satin Ribbon
