Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is going just wonderfully! Are you all ready for the upcoming Holidays? I think that I am finally getting there. I have been so busy shopping, crafting, and baking that my posts have been sporadic. I just haven't had time to create for the blog so I am really glad that I can be a part of these design teams. Helps to keep me on my toes!!
So today is Thursday and that means another fabulous challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! And this week we have a color challenge. Just look at this beautiful swatch! Just in case you can't read the colors they are Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Night of Navy, and River Rock. Hmmm... Not colors that I would normally put together but that's what makes this such a great challenge! And everyone does it differently and that's what I love about seeing everyone's creation!
Instead of trying to use all these colors in paper, I decided to watercolor with them. And then stick to just two of the colors as my main color choices. And those two colors were River Rock and Night of Navy. Doing it this way makes it a little easier to put them together. I started with a card base of River Rock and cut another piece of River Rock a little smaller and ran that through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurry embossing folder. Then I used the image from the Greeting Card Kids set and watercolored with River Rock (for shadowing), Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive. I also used some Blush Blossom to make her face a little rosy. This is attached to a Night of Navy piece. Around this I wrapped a piece of wide striped ribbon in Night of Navy and tied the ends together with some linen thread. This piece is popped up on the River Rock card. Done!
O.k.! It's your turn! You can see what the rest of the design team created by going to the Create with Connie and Mary site. Then show us what you can do with these colors! Can't wait to see it! Have a super day!!
