H2H Color Challenge
This week’s Heart 2 Heart Challenge is a color challenge. (And let me just say, it was a challenge for me, although it did bring me out of my comfort zone a bit which is always good.) The colors are Gypsy, Cremé Brulee, and Black. I have to admit, my Gypsy ink pad was still in the wrapper. LOL! But after playing with it, I realized that I really like the color!
I pulled out my well loved favorite, Treasure Life set for the flowers. The background on the small Colonial White cardstock was stamped with the beautiful set from the Bliss Workshop on the Go in Cremé Brulee. Then I sponged some Cremé Brulee ink around the edges and stamped the flowers in Gypsy. The main background was stamped using the new Backgrounds & Borders set. Everything is matted on black cardstock. In fact, probably for the first time ever, I used black CS as my card base. I added some Cremé Brulee ribbon to finish off the front.
I added a piece of Colonial White CS inside and stamped some more flowers from Treasure Life. The birthday sentiment on the front and inside are from the new Card Chatter - Birthday set! (I love this set!)
Pop on over to the Heart 2 Heart blog and see what the other design team members came up with, then add a link to your own creation using this color combo. You just may win a great prize at the end of the month...
