Hello! It’s time for another color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches! Louise, our challenge hostess, is getting into a Christmas mood, and she has picked a color combo that’s a step off from the traditional red and green and mixed it with a great metallic.
I”ll be honest, I had a hard time figuring out what to do with this color combo, but finally I got it together and came up with this card. I’ve used the current sketch from The Crooked Stamper Sketch Challenge for my layout. I used some scrap paper to mask off the middle vertical strip area and blasted it with a pewter-colored pearl mist. In real life, it’s very shimmery! I’ve added a second photo below to help show off the shimmer. Although our CC&S color challenges use the names of Stampin’ Up colors, any company’s products can be used so long as the colors match closely. So I’ve played into the shimmer concept and used Brilliance ink in colors similar to the other two challenge colors to stamp a few Christmas ornaments. The ornament panel is attached to the card with dimensional adhesive. Even though the colors were a bit out of my comfort zone at first, I’m pleased with how the card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you’ll join us over at CAS Colours & Sketches with your own take on these colors! You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, November 25 to link your card at the challenge website. Also, we’re looking to add some new members to our design team in 2016, so if this is something you’re interested in, be sure to add the letters “DT” to your name when you link your card, and play along in next week’s sketch challenge, too!
