Weekly Challenge--Color Combo


You know what? I've never done a color challenge before! This was not really as easy as it looks....at least not for me! And as usual, I'm running behind! Busy, busy week as always. But here it is. I really wanted to put together a Thanksgiving-themed card to wish you all a wonderful and blessed day. Hopefully, you will spend it surrounded by those you love.

The challenge was to use Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Brocade Blue and any neutral. I used the Pumpkin Pie only on inking the leaves and shading with Chocolate Chip and Old Olive....an "interesting combo," but I did it!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Hope you will take some time to visit the other bloggers challenges.

Stamps: Sanded, Wanted, Linen, Autumn Fest, Hugs & Wishes
Inks: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
CS: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Brocade Blue, Whisper White
Misc: Corner Punch, Oval Coluzzel, Corner Rounder, Chocolate Chip Marker, Grosgrain Ribbon*, Paper Piercer & Template (from Tool Kit), Old Olive Mini Brads, Natural Hemp, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals

*Brocade Blue now available only in 5/8" width, the 1/4" shown is now retired.


Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Love your choice of stamps Barb! Fantastic card.

Barbara said...

Thank you, Everyone, for the compliments.

Stefanie referred to the use of the White Gel Pen, but I did not use one. The inks were sponged onto the rubber and then stamped onto Whisper White CS...that's why you see the white veins, or lines.

HTH!
