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!
