Time for another fun challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary this week! This time it's a color challenge that includes -
The colors instantly drew me towards a masculine feeling for a card, but I told myself to not do the obvious. Instead I challenged myself to images and ideas not usually associated with this choice of color combination. So what did I do?
Florals and butterflies! Complete opposite of anything masculine that I originally thought of! I thought it would be fun to do a color block for the background. I used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, What I Love for the Lost Lagoon flowers and the Sahara Sand greenery. I used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Perfect Pairings for the Delightful Dijon "Hoorays". To soften the edges of the background, I added one of our fabulous Paper Doilies.
I die cut a butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlets and cut it in half. I sponged all 3 of our challenge colors on both halves and adhered them as if it was taking flight. Rhinestones helped to add to it's 'flight effect'. A little bling always makes things better, don't you think? Thanks for stopping by today! Please join us and play along with this fun challenge. Happy Stamping!
