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.

Products used:

Card Stock:  grey, chartreuse, flamingo (peach), white
Ink:  Fun Stampers Journey Black Licorice #IP-0041
Stamp:  Fun Stampers Journey Lovely Day Stamp #AT-0188 and Stampendous Bouquet for you
Dies:  Spellbinders A2 Fancy Postage Edge Die, and Tim Holtz Tag Collection

I hope you like this card and that you will take the plunge and join in this week's challenge too.  And be sure to stop over to www.canyoucaseit.com and see all the wonderful creations by the design team.

Thanks for stopping by,
Jeanne
