Paper Players color challenge


Nance has a pretty color challenge this week at  Paper Players:




It's kinda funny...I don't work with any of these colors very often, so I was surprised when I saw them. They look so beautiful together!!!
This was going to be a real challenge for me, though, as I wasn't even sure I had them all.

I found a lonely sheet of the coral and a half of the blushing bride. At this point I was thinking I'd need to make a few phone calls to see if any friends had what I needed! But I dug further....

I only had the gray and honey for inks, and  managed to find some DP that had the gray, but I had plenty of hello honey card stock. I ordered a pack when the new catty came out.

 That's kinda funny too. If you look at the card I had the most hello honey paper and I used it the least....a tiny center for the flower!

 I had all my supplies ready, and decided flowers were the best way to go with what I had. I don't typically do much layering, but I was already out of my box with the colors, so I gave it a go!

If you want to play along...head on over to Paper Players...it's lots of fun!

Stamps: SU petite pairs
Ink: SU black
Paper: SU DP, calypso coral, hello honey, basic gray, white, blushing bride

  3. Your card turned out beautiful Laurie! I love the layered flower and layout. It seems many of us had a challenge with the colors but when I look at the end results I can't tell at all.
