Colour Challenges

I did a few colour challenges this weekend, combined with other ones of course.

My first card is for Stamp With Us' colour inspiration challenge. I used red, pink and orange from the lipsticks for mine. It is also for Farm Fresh Friday's sketch challenge. I thought this card would be ideal to use at the end of the school year to give out to one of my team.


Stamps: Teacher Anya, Tart & Tangy, Frames with Flourish, Sincere Salutations

Papers: Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie, Copic White, Summer Picnic DSP

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie, SU Markers in Real Red, Green Galore and Close To Cocoa

Accessories: Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon

My next colour challenge card is for CC276 to use Soft Suede, Apricot Appeal and Almost Amethyst and for Just Us Girls Challenge #39 to make an apron card. I have never done one of these before so made my own template for it as I don't have a printer (that works anyway!) and couldn't print out the template they linked to.

I thought this style card would be great as a thank you for when I go visiting friends for dinner etc and the slip in the pocket does say thank you on it, but I forgot to photograph it so you could see.  


Stamps: Three For You, Elegant Thank You

Papers: Soft Suede, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White, Tea Party DSP

Inks: Apricot Appeal, Almost Amethyst

Accessories: Three for You Punch, Apricot Appeal grosgrain ribbon

My last card for the day is for Stampin' Royalty's challenge #25 to use Basic Black, Taken With Teal, Lavender Lace and Pink Passion and for Papertake Weekly's Challenge #43. This colour combo is absolutely gorgeous and will definitely go in my faves colour combos list.


Stamps: Priceless

Papers: Taken With Teal, Lavender Lace, Pink Passion, Whisper White, Night & Day DSP

Inks: Taken With Teal, Pink Passion, Lavender Lace

Accessories: Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls Embossing Folder, Lilac brads from stash, Anita's Teal satin ribbon
