Color Challenge... PTI style



Today's challenge over at PTI is a color challenge. I chose Jessica W.'s colors of Soft Stone, Summer Sunrise, Aqua Mist, and Raspberry Fizz. Her cards looked so amazing and different I really thought I could pull it off. Now I am not so sure!! I changed this card at least 3 or 4 times. At least I finally came up with something I could show on my blog :-).

So, the base is Soft Stone cs with a mat in AM. I used tone on tone color ink (AM) at the bottom with Text Style II to give the mat some character. I die cut the SG: Flower out of RF felt and the Spiral Notebook die from Soft stone. I used Versamark ink and the Embellishments stamp set on the SN page. I edged the AM mat and the SN page in Summer Sun ink. Then, I stamped the sent in Summer Sun. Finally, I cut my own banner in Summer Sunrise cs and put it behind the SN page. Still lacking something... I sewed an AM button onto the flower using SSunrise floss and put 3 rhinestones at the top for balance.

Hope you like it!

Enjoy!

Kudos for taking on this colour combo, I stayed FAR away from it!!

I like how you incorporated the colours, and that fat ss banner pairs perfectly with the flower die!

Wow! So effective. I love the tone on tone stamping. It adds such nice detail and richness without being screamy. Clever.
