Complimentary Colours at MMM

Hello everybody

I cannot believe a week has gone by since I last blogged.  We are into week 3 of our colour challenge at Make My Monday,  and this week we are looking at complimentary colours - in particular yellow and purple.  Yes - they really do work together, but it is essential to get the right tones.  I have used fairly rich colours, but if you pop across to the challenge you will see that these colours have been used in all manner of ways, and I particularly like the way the soft tones have been used by several of the design team.

My card colours are both from the Tim Holtz distress range and I have teamed my image has been stamped with Dusty Concord to tone.  The yellow card has been through the bug in a embossing folder - one is honeycomb, and the other is a sort of basket weave.  As everything was plain I wanted to add some texture.  The image is a Justrite stamp and matches the Nestie.  The flower was made with a Cheery Lynn die and a pearl brad was added to the middle.  Ribbon is Stampin Up.

Mynette has certainly kept us on our toes with the colour wheel challenges, and each time I have been pleasantly surprised that the colours do work.  How sceptical is that of me ....

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.

  7. This is wonderful Val and I know what you mean about doubting the colours. My initial reaction was a bit wide eyed but having seen what you and Suzi have done with them I will have to have more faith in future, lol! The embossing looks fabulous and I love the stamp.
