This week's challenge over at CCCB definitely stretched my imagination, but I sure had fun doing it! The colors that we were asked to use are:
They're quite pretty & I came very close to matching them. For this card, I used: Ranger Distress Ink in Mulled Lavender; 2 sheets of paper from a vivid-colored pad that I picked up at Wal-Mart for a song, rubbed with the ink on a baby wipe for that really ragged look; my largest classic oval Nestabilities; a strip of 5.5"x 12" cardstock, folded in half; Copic Sketch Marker #s 0, C5, G21, YG03, Y21, V09, Y11, V01, & BG10; some Thickers chipboard letters colored in Copic #V09; and an image from the CD "On Occasion" from Sunshine Graphics.This is a closeup of my coloring. I also inked the edge of the oval with the Ranger ink (didn't want it looking too "new" compared to the rest of the card).And here's the completed card so you can get the full effect. I think it has a nice "Spring" feel to it. These aren't normally colors that I would work with, I prefer either pastels or dark, muted colors, but it was nice to step out of my norm and try something new. Sure hope I did okay!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!
