Betty Wright has invited me to host some of theTuesday color challenges over on Split Coast for the next three months and today was my first time! Whoo hoo!! Boy - it's tricky choosing colors that haven't been done before!! And, of course, you want to pick colors people want to use while still being challenged!
So - for my first shot out of the gate I chose 3 neutral colors - white, basic gray, and river rock. There's also a 'dessert option' that goes with the challenge - something extra you can do on your card if you want to - I chose using a background stamp as my dessert option this week.
First, I dry embossed a square Nestability frame on the card. You can see my tutorial on how to do this here.
I stamped the background text across the River Rock panel and adhered it to a gray panel. Then I adhered the panels inside the frame. Next, I stamped the label, sentiment and scrolly and cut it with a Labels 10 Nestability. I adhered the label to the text panel using foam tape and added one little jewel to the scroll.
So what do you think of the 3 colors I chose??? Let me know if you make a card using them!
