CCMC 154

Good Thursday morning! Time for another wonderful color challenge from our friends at Create with Connie and Mary! Here are the wonderful colors they are challenging us with this week:

And here is what I did with them:
In case you had a hard time reading/seeing the color names, they are Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, and River Rock. I do really like the color River Rock, but it does pose a challenge for me. I started by choosing my image from the Grow Your Way set. I just love this set! I stamped the image on watercolor paper in black StazOn and then watercolored it with Elegant Eggplant, River Rock, and Melon Mambo. This is mounted onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant and then popped up onto a piece of River Rock that has three gold brads. Then I glued the whole thing down onto my card of textured Elegant Eggplant. I stamped the greeting (from the same set) in Elegant Eggplant onto a strip of River Rock, cut a notch in one end and glued it to a piece of Melon Mambo that was punched using the dotted ribbon scallop border punch. This is popped up on the card. The sketch I used actually comes from Mary Jo's lunchtime sketch.

Time to check out what the other fabulous designers have done with these colors! You can see their fantastic work and a link to their blogs by visiting the Create with Connie and Mary site. And while you are there, be sure to upload your creation so that we can all see what you come up with! I look forward to seeing your fantastic projects! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Deb, I so like the way you snuck in the Melon Mambo in your card. Just a hint of it makes your card pop! Thanks for all the comments each week on my cards Deb!
