This Week's Color Challenge
Wow! What a tough color combo this week! Melon Mambo, More Mustard, and Baja Breeze! As I was cyber chatting on splitcoaststampers with my "Challenge Chaser" friends late Monday night, one of the gals (Hi Wendy!) first saw this challenge and said "WHAT??" So, I needed to give it a try. After all, I always say I love color challenges, I can't be intimidated! Well, this one came close!
I immediately pictured flowers with the melon and mustard colors, and a baja breeze sky. At first, I was going to use more embellishments and layers, but decided to keep it Clean and Simple (CAS). I used Awash with Flowers, a fun 2-step stamping set. I could have lined things up better, but I wanted to see how quickly I could do this! The outlines are stamped in basic gray, and I added old olive to the stamps and leaves. I sponged olive for the ground, baja for the sky...then added a scalloped oval in baja breeze. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped in more mustard on whisper white. Just added two gold brads and dimensionals for the final touch. Making a birthday card with brads fits this week's Party Time Tuesday challenge, as well! This card took 5 minutes to make, maybe less! Not every card has to consume your entire day!!
