Colour Challenge 8 – better late than never

I had hoped to complete another of Kristina's colour challenges last week but it didn't quite work out that way. Even though the challenge has finished, I thought I'd still show you what I made. This was the challenge picture & colour combination:

And this is my card:
I have to say I struggled a bit with the pumpkin pie in the combination, but I am pretty happy with the end result. As per the challenge I used brilliant blue, bashful blue & pumpkin pie card & ink & whisper white card. I used a swirl and flower stamp from the 'Priceless' set & a greeting & small flower from 'Short and Sweet'. Each flower has a brilliant blue brad in its centre & is raised on a dimensional. The greeting is stamped in brilliant blue ink on bashful blue card & punched out with the word window punch.

While I found this combination a bit more challenging than I expected & don't expect that pumpkin pie will replace celery any time soon, I'm glad I persevered with it. So, my challenge to you is to try this combination yourself or pick a colour you normally wouldn't use & see what you come up with!

PS: My friends, Sam & Kellie made great challenge cards, so check them out too. If you want even more, see Kristina's faves here.

Di that card is fabulous, I love it. It's such a shame you didn't get it in on time. It's making me like that stamp set a little bit more. Good luck with the current colour inspiration.

Hi Di,

Your card is beautiful! Kellie is is such a shame you didn't get it in on time!

Are you going to make one for this week's colours? Hope so!


PS. How did you do that wavy Pumpkin Pie strip?
