Welcome to the first ColorLab Challenge of the new year! Our first color combination is so beautiful, so spring-like, so….well you get the point. I love it! Take a look:
The new focus this year for the color challenges is to use the actual ColorLab as the inspiration. If you ever wonder “what goes with ____ (color of choice)”, then this is the place for you! We all have our go-to palettes but struggle with certain others. This will help you put colors together that are sure to work!
My card today was one of the last thank-yous that I needed post-Christmas. I told you that my stamping resolution was to try to get cards out on time and I only needed one more. Pretty good, given my normal track record. I’ll say that this one came together quickly since I was definitely ready for a change of pace.
Marina Mist is really a fantastic blue. I admit that I hadn’t take a serious look at it until recently. I was so excited to see Baja Breeze come back in the Color Revolution and then I was straight into Christmas stamping. I can’t wait to use this one more (and to get more coordinating accessories…translated, taffeta and satin ribbon). The grosgrain I used was a gift from my upline who knew I would fall in love with it. The background paper is the Playdate DSP and the Pear Paper comes from Greenhouse Gala. I inked up the flower from Friends Never Fade using my Stampin’ Write markers and used the sentiment from Say It Simply (Occasions Mini). I love that the DSPs do all of the work and make the most of a basic layout!
Don’t forget to go over to the ColorLab Challenge and see the fantastic work of the other designers! I’m going to be un-decorating my house for the next few days but I have another fantastic project planned for Tuesday and the next SUO Challenge. Thanks for stopping by…see you soon!
