Bloggers Challenge – Color Scheme

Lisa gave us a real challenge for today's Bloggers Challenge…Real Red, Taken with Teal and Crushed Curry.  Can you say BRIGHT!  But, they actually were fun to work with!


For some reason, these colors had a masculine feel to them for me (or at least they did today!)  I started with a base of Taken with Teal cardstock.  I added the Crushed Curry Scallop Edge Punch strip to the bottom of the Jackpot Designer Paper.  I wrapped some 5/8 Basic Black Grosgrain RIbbon along the top of the Designer Paper and secured on the back.


I stamped the King of the Grill image with Basic Black on Confetti White, then used my AquaPainter and Stampin' Write Markers in Taken with Teal, Crushed Curry, Real Red and Going Gray to color in the image.  I layered it on Basic Black.  I stamped "King of the Grill" in Basic Black on Crushed Curry, then punched with the Large Oval Punch.  I layered it on a Basic Black punched Modern Label and added two Real Red Mini Brads on the sides.  I added it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.


I think this will be a fun Father's Day card for my husband!  I'm anxious to see what the others have done with this color challenge!


Stay tuned tomorrow for a couple posts!  I have the SUDSOL Blog Tour going on, plus this week's Create with Connie and Mary's Color Challenge!  Fun day, so make sure you check back!

Great card!  The patterned paper reminds of a tablecloth at a picnic or BBQ.  Love the layered punches on the sentiment too!

Great card!  Perfect for Father's Day!  Only if it was going to my husband, there would have to be flames coming out of that grill somewhere!  Grill wizard he ain't!
