CYCI #137 Color Challenge
I need to be totally honest with you, this week's color challenge kinda thru me for a loop! I had no idea how I was going to use Grey, Chartreuse, and Flamingo to make a card. So I set those three colors of paper on my craft desk and stared at them for several days. Finally, I just said "Just Do It!"
So I started with a grey base card. Then added a die cut mat of chartreuse thru which I weaved a 1/8 inch thick peach colored ribbon. I then cut another mat of the peach color and used the same die set to cut out the white paper. I stamped my flower image and colored it with Spectrum Noir Markers to match the papers. I cut a small tag and stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice ink. And attached it to the card with a ribbon bow. The white piece with the flowers on it is raised to add some dimension. All in all, I think it turned out pretty good. I don't think this is my favorite color combination. But I like the challenge it gave me, which forced me to think outside the box.
