Bloggers Challenge: Color Challenge


Today's Blogger's Challenge was all about COLOR. The colors we were charged with using for the challenge are blue, moss, and orange. I happen to love these colors together, so this was an exercise in pure fun for me!

My card uses the Watercolor Distress Technique from the February 2007 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter for the background. Color can be funny sometimes -- I originally intended the Faded Denim and Orange Marmalade Distress Inks to make up my background, but when they smooshed together they came out that lovely moss color, so I ended up with all three colors on the background. What a happy accident and perfect for this technique.

I collaged over the Watercolor Distress and added the other element to complete my card. All of the stamps are from Tim Holtz. I just LOVE the style of these stamps -- but doesn't everyone?

Make sure to check out the other creations -- click on the Blogger's Challenge link on the sidebar of my blog to get a list of players this week.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!

Wonderful eclectic mix of elements. How great that you created a background (by accident) using the challenge colors. These type of cards are hard for me to make but you do an awesome job with them.
