This week our challenge was a color combo challenge. I admit I struggled a bit with this one. These are not colors I normally put together. But hey, it IS supposed to be a challenge, right? So, I rolled up my sleeves and jumped in. The colors in our challenge were: Sahara Sand, Blue Bayou, Rose romance, Mellow Moss, and Really rust. See what I mean?
I started with a card base of Sahara sand and layered a strip of Mellow Moss cardstock on it. I used my paper trimmer to cut a small slit in the crease of the card and fed the Blue Bayou ribbon through it and around the card. For the focal point, I used really rust chalk to create the soft background color. I inked up my flower with Rose romance and mellow moss markers and stamped it right over the chalk. The 'thank you' is also inked with the mellow moss marker. I have to say that the hardest part of this challenge was getting the Really Rust in there. I like how it looks as a background color tho.
