One of my resolutions for the new was to do more card challenges. It's now February 7th and I haven't done a single one. Shame on me! Thankfully our great friend sent a little challenge out to our demo group to participate this week. I came home from class this morning and knocked this card in 15 minutes!
Orange and turquoise (Tangelo Twist and Coastal Cabana) is not my favorite color combo. Mainly because I am not a huge fan of orange. But that's why the challenge is so great. It made me reevaluate my aversion to certain colors. I own them, why don't I use them more often.
After looking at the colors, I immediately grabbed for my Sea Street stamp set. I envisioned something nautical but in non-nautical colors. Although now the orange is reminding me of life vests... Anyway I grabbed the set, but realized that I needed more texture, more layers, but I didn't want to actually add a ton more paper. Enter the Work of Art stamp. The chevron matched almost perfectly with my piece of Fresh Prints DSP (retired). From there I added the starfish, octopus, and greeting. And topped the card off with a few Bermuda Bay sequins taken off the thread. I just may use this color combo again sometime...
