This week at Create with Connie and Mary, they’ve got a hum-dinger of a colour challenge! I had such a hard time trying to decide what to do with it. When I am faced with a colour challenge like this, I find that if I make white the major colour and just infuse the colours, that seems to work. That said, I made it even harder on myself by not completely following the colours. I used Elegant Eggplant instead of Rich Razzleberry!
For this project unfortunately, the idea is not a happy one. I recently had a friend lose her father so I needed to make a great card for her. So, I decided that these colours would work for this meaningful card.
The base is Whisper White and I made a woven panel in the centre which I backed with some River Rock and Night of Navy. I also backed it with another piece of Whisper White which I embossed in the Big Shot.
I added a butterfly punched out with Elegant Eggplant and it sparkles just a little bit with some Shimmer Paint spritz and a few little Basic Rhinestones.
I’d love to see what you can come up with for this colour challenge so head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and try it out!
