You know how sometimes things get a little out of hand when you start crafting... That's certainly the case with today's post of not one but two cards. It all started with a simple little colour challenge over at Stampin' Royalty.
I completely fell for the bright colour combo which is actually strange as I'm no big fan of yellows or oranges but for some reason this colour combo really hit home. I found a nice flower stamp from a set from Kanban that actually I have never used, despite owning the stamp for at long time. The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Create Your Own Background so that's exactly what I did, and for that I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil and Tim Holtz distress inks.
|Colour scheme one: Festive Berries, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmelade
|I stamped and coloured the image inside the card and on the envelope.
For my second card, I looked for colour inspiration and found that both Colour Me...! challenge and Just Add Ink have a palette of turquoise and yellow. So all in all, the card that started with one simple colour challenge ended up being two cards and five challenges in total! Now the only question is, which one is the prettier one?
|Colour scheme two: Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed
|Some stamping inside the card as well
