Have you been keeping up with Claire on the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog? She's shaking things up and posting a challenge every Monday. I thought I'd better get my stuff together and try one out since I've missed the first few. This week Claire's thrown out a color challenge, and let me just say...it was a challenge!
I don't know that I've ever put these exact colors together before! Check them out:
See what I mean?! As I was working things around, I was afraid I was making a hot mess, but by the end, I loved it! It's different, fun, and funky...and the best part? It got my mojo going again after a VERY long break from stamping.
I used all of the colors in the challenge, starting with the bright pink card base and dove gray cardstock. I stamped it with two fab background stamps: the houndstooth from Heirloom Patterns and the script from Text It. The sentiment is from Sweethearts and I think it fits the sassy feel to this card! And I stitched! I have never done that before, but my sewing machine has been out for awhile and I thought, "what the heck!"
So thank you, Claire, for this terrific color challenge! Can't wait to see what this Monday will bring! And if you want to play along, the details are here... and it involved prizes!
