WOW! I'm just not feeling these colors this week! The Challenge was to use Purely Pomegranate, Brilliant Blue, and Old Olive together....and we were allowed to throw in a bit of a neutral. Since I almost never use Brilliant Blue (think I'm only on my second package of BB CS...EVER...and I discovered SU 12 years ago!!),and rarely use Purely Pomegranate (not a favorite, for sure!), this was not an easy combo to work with!! There are a few samples that made it into the trash bin, but I have been working on this combo off and on all day....since I was snowed in, it wasn't too difficult to find the time.
So, are you ready? Here's what I've come up with. Fairly simple. And you know what I always say, don't you?!! When in doubt, throw in some black....it can make a so-so card look incredible! Well, I'm not sure if it really made this one "incredible," but it made it much more pleasant to look at....gave it some "punch," so to speak. Not sure if you can see, but all of this was layered onto a Whisper White CS base. Oh, and see the flower? Do you recognize it? It's the flower from Be Happy, punched out with the 5 Petal Flower punch. Isn't that a cool idea?!! I happened upon this idea somewhere out there in Blogland and just HAD TO TRY IT!! (Sorry, I don't remember the source!) Then it was enhanced with a Olive felt flower from Flower Fusion....these are loads of fun to work with (we'll be using them at Stamp Camp next month!).
