Color Challenge

It’s funny that this color challenge inspired this particular card.  Here is the color combo:

I ended up making two of the same cards with a different color combo on each.   The card design was inspired by Mary Brown’s card.  I fell in love with her card the first time I saw it! 

Here are two cards that I made that are similar to her card (hers is much more beautiful and striking!)


Here was the first card that I made – I started with a Daffodil Delight base and stamped Daffodil Delight for the woman.  I stamped the image again in Melon Mambo and fussy cut around the boots and umbrella.  Here the blue is actually Midnight Muse.

While I loved the pop from the Melon Mambo, I wasn’t crazy about the tone on tone Daffodil Delight image – not strong enough.

Enter the color challenge…..I switched out the ink pad colors – the main image is Crumb Cake – you can see it much more clearly.

I switched the umbrella, sentiment, and boots for Not Quite Navy – it’s very vibrant in the picture.  I also added Marina Mist raindrops from her hand.  I guess in retrospect maybe I should have moved the raindrops elsewhere…..oh well, overall I was pleased with the cards!

Thanks for the inspiration!

I just love this set and it is so much fun to do the umbrella and boots in another color. What a GREAT card! Thanks for joining in the Create with Connie and Mary Spring Edition Saturday Challenge!

So cute...I have yet to stamp with this set...need to pull it out! The Daffodil Delight reminds me of the yellow rain slicker I used to have! Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary's Saturday Challenge!
