This week at Create with Connie and Mary, there is a fantastic colour challenge:
I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do for this challenge – this doesn’t happen very often. Most of the time I play around for quite some time before actually getting close to a final design decision. I also wanted to play with my alphabets as I’m doing an alphabet class soon and wanted to get some samples done!
The base for this card is So Saffron and I layered it with Chocolate Chip and then Pear Pizzazz. I ran the Pear piece through the Big Shot with the “friend” texture plate and then sponged it for a little more depth.
For the central image area, I used Whisper White cardstock and sponged the edges with Baja Breeze. I then stamped the letters from the Broadsheet Alphabet in coordinating colours and added little bits of bling to them in the form of Basic Rhinestones, Basic Pearls and ribbon.
I added a little strip of paper pierced Baja Breeze cardstock to the right and some 5/8″ Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon accentuated with a button from the Neutral Buttons.
Like this colour combination? Head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and play along with us!
