Hello and Happy Sunday! This week over at The Paper Players, the lovely Jaydee has a color challenge for us. I really wanted to step outside the box with this one but my mind just kept going to the Falling for Leaves Bundle. These are perfect colors for fall! I haven’t played around with that stamp set a whole lot yet, so it was time to ink it up.
I may have mentioned it before but Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry are two colors that I tend to shy away from. However, Mossy Meadow is a gorgeous green, so that kind of made up for it. But that’s why color challenges are so fun, they can take you out of your "color comfort zone" sometimes. That’s a good thing.
I used the Buffalo Check Background stamp on Very Vanilla because I am kind of obsessed with it right now. It looks great in EVERY color! I used my Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Markers and a ruler to add some additional color on the plaid background. I like how it tied all of the colors together and that it adds versatility to the Buffalo Check stamp. Have I mentioned that I love that stamp? Haha!
I also added the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint in a Stampin’ Spritzer bottle with some rubbing alcohol to add some shimmer to the Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry and vellum leaves. It is really close to Cajun Craze in color and I really like the added detail.
Won’t you join us and share your project this week?
You can link up your project through Friday October 19th, 2018 at Noon PST.
