My first Colour Challenge



A couple of friends recently got into blogging and seem to be taking part in lots of sketches and colour challenges. (Hi Donna and Sandra!!). So I promised myself I would have a go at it as soon as I got the launch and the SAS done. So yesterday I did just that. I did my first colour challenge. It certainly was a challenge. I decided to try the Curtain Call Color Challenge found here: http://stampinwithstacey.blogspot.com/

I didn't look at any of the other cards that people had made before I did mine so that I wouldn't be influenced. I found it a real struggle using the colours, but then once I had finished and I did look at everyone elses I thought how good their cards looked. Why didn't I think of doing that? Whenever I looked at the colours they seemed so dull and I couldn't work out how to incorporate the Tempting Turquoise. I have to admit I hadn't noticed the Whisper White as one of the colours so there isn't much of that in my card as I wasn't sure about using it, I just used it to stamp the other colour onto. Oh well, not a bad card really, just not the colours I would usually use :)





Thank You for looking.

I think you should submit to color challenges more often, this card is beautiful! I often forget about tearing, it is such a pretty effect.

Nice to see that sentiment used - I just love it and need to pull it out again. Great use of this week's Curtain Call colours. Love the flowers (can't wait to get my set!) and your torn edges. Thanks for playing :D
