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.
