Blogger’s Challenge 63 – Color Combo!


Today’s Blogger’s Challenge was to use the new In-Colors (or similar) of Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango and Riding Hood Red to create our card!  Wow…those are certainly bright colors combined! 

My card kind of reflects the weather today…blech!  What was in my head just didn’t come out the way I wanted and after tweaking it a dozen times, I just said ENOUGH!  lol!  Anyone else have creative times like that?

I started with a base of Pacific Point and scalloped the front edge, then added the layer of Tangerine Tango and scalloped the edge of that, too.  I stamped the entire flower in Kiwi Kiss on Whisper White, then removed ink from the flower petals with my sponge dauber.  I then used sponge daubers to add more Riding Hood Red and Tangerine Tango ink to the flowers.  After I stamped it, I cut the Whisper White to remove the left flower.  I added the Pacific Point striped ribbon (love the new ones!) and then punched 3/4 and 1" circles from the various colors to add along the side.  This is where a greeting was supposed to go, but nothing fit right.

I’m off to check out the rest of  the Blogger’s Challenge participants.  Hope you enjoy your weekend.  We are headed to the Lake again on Saturday.

Go Bucks!

Looks like all your struggles turne out really well. I like the effect you achieved on your card. It’s vibrancy is fun and playfu. Great job Connie…
