Bloggers Challenge - Color Challenge


Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday, I'm so glad you stopped by today!  Thanks to everyone who played along with lasts weeks Embossing Challenge, it was wonderful to see so many different embossed projects! 

This weeks challenge is a color challenge - we're using the colors Brown, Green and Purple, the shades of these color are open for your interpretation.  I used Sage, Chocolate and Amethyst as my colors.


I found some fab flourish paper in my stash from The Paper Loft that had subtle shades of Green and Brown, that worked perfectly with the challenge colors.  I distressed the edges, on all panels, sponging with Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The sentiment (Accomplish Great Things IN0225-F) is from Verses, stamped in Chocolate on Vanilla card stock, I added the Torn Frames Technique to the Chocolate Panel.  The beautiful Butterflies are from Cheery Lynn Designs, cut from Amethyst card stock, and sponged with Walnut Stain ink.

Details:
Stamps - Verses
Ink - Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Ranger Coffee Archival
Card Stock - Vanilla, Chocolate, Amethyst, Sage
Other - Cheery Lynn Mini Butterfly Dies, Distress Tool, The Sticky Thumb Dimensionals, Ink Blending Tool, The Paper Loft Pattern Paper, Big Shot, Pearls, Glue Dots

What a lovely card. The embossed butterflies are so elegant and dainty. You did a great job using muted tones of the color scheme. I'm with Chrissy in that I initially struggled with the color combo but it all worked out in the end.
