We are always looking for those things that inspire us, that push us to create and spark that drive in us to make something out of this world. I am often inspired by color, and pattern. I absolutely love to get inspiration from challenge blogs and although I don’t make as much time for it as I want, I am lucky enough to be on a few design teams that helps me flex that creative muscle. Today is the new Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge and it’s leaning towards traditional Christmas colors… with a twist.
Here is the card I created.
These are the colors that we were inspired by to use for our projects, I love the unexpected blue which adds a cool twist to it.
I added the splash of blue color in the tag that I used for the card front. I threw in a little red onto it as well, so easy and fun!!
I love putting a large texture on the card front base, I used the large polks-dot embossing folder. Then of course I added some Dazzling Details over the raised circles for even more emphasis… it’s SOOO pretty in person!! I am off to rinse out my sinuses AGAIN… ugh!! But while I am busy doing that, LOL!!- Join us over at Hand Stamped Sentiments to play along with this weeks color challenge. It is a pretty traditional color scheme with a nice twist, give it a go!!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for a list of all my upcoming classes that I will post and update, I am a little behind- thanks to all the pollen and junk in the air… this too shall pass.
See you tomorrow!!!
