COLOR CHALLENGED?


So today is the day I decided to do a Color Challenge on SCS http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=234011. Colors for today: Really Rust, Brocade Blue and Marigold Morning

Why today? Well, my daugther Melanie went on a playdate to her friend's house, so my daughter Vanessa wanted me to do something with her. So, I thought we could both make cards. She does like doing that. What kind of card should we make? How about trying out the color challenge? Well, I do not have paper or ink in the Rust color, so I had to improvise. I came up with the idea of using my pastels, in which there is the Rust color. I versamarked the Big Blossom stamp (which I have not used yet) on the marigold morning paper and used the poppin' pastels techinique with the rust color. I used the ink Marigold Morning with the crosshatch background on the Brocade Blue as the cardbase.
I am trying to do more of the challenges on SCS, to get more familiar with color combos and layouts.
