Catch the Bug oldie but goodie color challenge

Two ATCs (artist trading cards) made for the same color combo from Catch the Bug and sketch layout from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #127:

What a color palette!!!

What an amazing layout to use lots of patterns and/or colors!!

Here's the 1st ATC, an advent ATC, for December 8 or Day 8:

Light gray is the base cardstock (2.5" x 3.5") the light lavender cardstock slightly smaller is layered on top. The pointed shape is rotated on this ATC and the stenciled hearts are to mimic the bow. Light pink is the color of the pointed pentagon shape with purple and magenta for the stenciled hearts. #8 is stenciled in medium blue. So I managed to use the gray, pink, and magenta from the color challenge photo.

Here's a close-up to hopefully see the colors better and also the inking around the edges:

Supplies and vendors include:
*cardstock scraps from a Multicolor Scrap Pack by Colorbok
*deco tape from Jot
*number stencil from an old Tupperware stencil pack
*dark blue and dark purple ink pads from Horizon Group
*heart stencils from a Bible journaling stencil set from American Crafts

This is the 2nd ATC, a get well, for a great aunt to be mailed tomorrow:
Purple is the color of the base (2.5" x 3.5") and light pink for the slightly smaller layer. A turquoise/teal blue is for the pointed pentagon shape shown in the sketch layout illustration. Navy blue was used for "get" and dark purple was used for "well". Dark purple heart to mimic part of a bow is next to the 'w' of well and magenta hearts are in the 2 bottom corners. The deco tape has a lot of different colors in it and hopefully help unify the colors.

Some supplies to feature include:
*xoxo self-inking stamper from Jot
*deco tape also from Jot
*letter stencils from old Tupperware stencil set

A close-up to get more details:
This ATC also covers about 3 of the suggested challenge colors of pink, magenta, and teal.

Days 1-7 for December/Advent ATCs will be an upcoming blog posting later in the weekend. Until then, I will keep crafting in the cold heartland of central Illinois,
