Today, I am continuing my obsession with color challenges, by posting this week's Colour Me...! challenge #30. Below, you will see that I am also still plugging away at past challenges. I actually did one over the weekend and the other on Monday, but saved this post so I can include the current challenge.
I am combining the Colour Me and Freshly Made Sketches challenges this week. I must admit that I struggle with combining metallic gold with certain colors (like daffodil!) but it seems to be all the rage right now. SU has some new specialty papers that I haven't ordered yet. I suppose if I had, this would have been easier! Ha!
Now...to some previous challenges...
Challenge #5 has a fun twist. Anytime the month has 5 weeks, we get to choose our own colors on the 5th week...5 of them! How fun is that? My card uses these 5 colors: crumb cake, cherry cobbler, always artichoke, more mustard, and not quite navy.
I embossed the not quite navy with the vintage wallpaper (I think) folder. I can't remember the name! The DSP is from a Holiday paper stack from a couple of years ago. I used markers to color the floral image, from SU's "Carte Postale," stamping on very vanilla. It was cut out with the Sizzix oval die, and sponged generously. The sentiment is from SU's "Trust God." Always artichoke seam binding and candy dots are the finishing touches.
Finally, I have a card for CMCC #6 ...featuring a monochromatic palette. I love wisteria wonder! It is probably my favorite in the SU Subtles collection. I was happy when they decided to put it in the regular lineup. The hardest part was deciding what stamp to use for this lovely color!
Thanks for coming by my blog again. Hopefully, I will posting some Christmas cards soon... I am way behind!
