Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday.
I have a very quick post for you tonight. It's almost midnight and I realized I haven't typed up my post for the Paper Players challenge tomorrow!
It's the awesome Sandy's turn to host our challenge this week and she has a color challenge for us
Shhhhhhh... don't tell Sandy... but Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral are two of my least favorite SU colors. SU has created some amazing colors... but these two are WAY outside of my comfort zone. I do love, Pear Pizzazz though.
So... in the spirit of challenges - I decided to take one of my least favorite colors and make that the primary color. Bermuda Bay. I then took my absolute least favorite color - Calypso Coral - and hid it. I know.. it's the chicken's way out.
Although these colors look amazing together - as you can see from the design from our very talented design team - they just don't run in my wheelhouse. However, they might very well fit into yours - and we would love to see what YOU do with them.
For my card, I used the new Altenew Sketchy Floral. I stamped onto some watercolor paper and colored the flowers with the equivalent of Bermuda Bay. I then added some drops to the middle of the flowers that are the closest I could get to Calypso Coral. the Pera Pizzazz is used only on the stamps. I love the way the colors turned out - a slightly muted version of themselves :-)
I do hope you will join us this week. If you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than our design team creations. They really are amazing.
I'll be back with another card tomorrow - and some blog candy! So I hope you will come back and join me. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
