I'm back with the final color challenge for the month of October. It has been such fun to play along with these challenges every week, and I am so grateful to the ladies over at Splitcoaststampers who invited me to be a guest designer for these past four weeks! I've had a blast working with the beautiful color combos they came up with!
This week's colors are Mossy Meadow, Baja Breeze, and Crumb Cake:
I came up with two very different card ideas for this one. The first is a Christmas card, of course! I am slowly working on them this year, because I've learned that I really don't enjoy mass-producing too many of the same design. It gets a little boring for me. But if I want every card to be different, I have to really start early and keep plugging away!
For my second card, I made a floral birthday design:
To start, I inked up a clear block with Baja Breeze ink and stamped it down onto some watercolor paper to make a square impression. I blended it lightly with an Aquapainter and dried it with my heat gun. Then I stamped the flowers from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Nature Silhouettes set in Mossy Meadow ink. The sentiment comes from LJD Pretty Poppies, and I stamped it in Soft Suede ink. I mounted the piece onto Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake mats, tied some Mossy Meadow ribbon around it, and popped it up onto a Mossy Meadow card base with foam adhesive.
These colors are so earthy, you can really do a lot of different cards with them. They'd make a beautiful lake scene too, and they're soft and muted enough for a sympathy card as well. Thanks for coming over and taking a look! Have a great week!
