Peachy Keen Challenge 29 ~ Color Inspiration

Hello my Creative friends! I usually don't post on the weekends, but I had a chance to sneak off into my craftroom!:)  I really wanted to join in the Peachy Challenge's Color inspiration challenge this week! 
This is the color inspiration we need to follow:

Well, being that this was a "Boy" tag, I tried my best to follow these colors as much as I can! I was SO EXCITED when I got my peachy happy mail & in there were these AMAZING stamps! Is this not the CUTEST little boy you've ever seen??? The sentiment is from the Peachy July Stamp of the month! I was SO VERY PROUD of myself because I FINALLY got the nerve to use my prisma color pencils! One of my sweet bloggy friends Miss Kristal DeBold had sent me a link to show me her 1st DIY project! You can see it HERE! She decorated a jar for her prisma color pencils. So it inspired & reminded me that I've had these for 2 yrs & they were so pretty that I didn't even want to sharpen them & ruin them! lol...... It was a gift from a special person, that's why I didn't want to use them! ;)  Well, I immediately went to youtube & came across this super TALENTED crafter: Miss Annika Ryan's channel. She had a 2 part tutorial on how to color "Skin" on kraft cardstock! I now mine is not perfect, but it came out okay for being my first time! I just LOVE the fact that those pencils color AMAZING onto my FAVORITE paper in the whole world!;) 

Here is what the entire tag looks like!

It was really hard to get a good picture of this since I used clear cardstock/acetate for my tag.
I had a LOT of fun w/this challenge! If you haven't played yet, what are you waiting for my sweet friends? Head on over to the Peachy Blog HERE & play along!

Here are the products I used for my tag:
~ Echo Parks's "This & That" CHARMING 6x6 paper pack
~ Clear cardstock/acetate (from my local stationery store
~ Lastly, a little sneakie peek!;)

Thank you SO VERY MUCH for stopping by my blog! Enjoy the rest of your weekend & I will see you all back here soon! xoxo
