Our team has colour challenges each week and I don’t often have the time for them but 2 weeks ago I had just a little time so thought I would have a go.
I had received the Free ‘Honeycomb Happiness’ set for Sale-A-Bration just 2 days before. I had been busy making some cards with it the day before. Which I will show you soon. Since this set was out still I thought I would use this for the challenge. I wasn’t sure of this set at first. I didn’t know how I would use it. I had seen some cute cards around with it though.
The Colour Challenge was Mint Macaron, Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight. To be honest I thought these colours were hard to work with but I would give it a try. After all that’s what a challenge is right!!
The stamps were sorted, the colour sorted, just the design to sort. When I get stuck with a design and I am not CASING a direct card I usually go to a Sketch design. I have a few on Pinterest. The layout for this card was based on the Clean and Simple Sketch #139.
So I have talked enough about how I got here but you want to see the card.
I used Shimmery White card to stamp the chick and the balloon on and coloured them with the aquapainter and ink pad. OK I cheated, I added some Calypso Coral for the beak and legs. 🙂 I cut them out and raised them up with Dimensionals. The paper is the Sale-A-Bration paper ‘Perfectly Artistic’ which is now not available. It was when I made the card 🙂 You can’t quite see but I added some Wink of Stella Clear Brush to the balloon.
Thanks for visiting. Why not go and challenge yourself to use these colours on a card.
See you next time,
