There is a prize up for grabs and the DT has created some beautiful cards. All the details are at the Lily pad.
Before you begin with a color challenge it's good to round up your colors. Pull our your markers, pencil's and some papers. In this case I wanted to pull the colors into my card with my scrap paper stash. As you can see the colors are not exact and I added one. It's a loose challenge to spark your creativity.
The "Lily Pad Color Palette" Challenge this month is sponsored by Karber Digital Images.
I hope she doesn't mind that I altered the glasses. I wanted the sunglasses to reflect the beach. Click here to see the image "Thinkier Leslie". You might want to check out this other card where I altered the sun glasses too. It's one of my all time favorite cards.
The inside sentiment is from SRM stickers. The "happy" is from PapertreyInk that my sister purchased for me. I cut all of my circles with Spellbinders and used the sand dunes from the same circle dies. All of the paper is Penny Black's Mix and Match papers. See the supply list at the bottom of the post for links etc.
Lots of Glossy Accents on the glasses. Sorry for the bad photo it's the only way the GA shows up.
Ready to create?? Grab your punched squares. ( I used a Spellbinder die to cut mine)
Now mix them up and recreate new squares. I added tape to the backs of each square. Easy!
Create a rectangle with the squares.... play around until you are happy with the colors. I made sure to have the darkest color at each end for balance. ( the bits of brown and yellow are my cropped work surface in case you were wondering )
You all know me by now so that means I have to add some white right? In lieu of dots I added faux stitching. I purposely did some single stitching and some double stitching on my lines.
I used some blue chalk ink and this "Lace Edged" stamp from Penny Black to add a touch more color to my background.
This is the finished background with the sentiment. Please send me an email if you have any questions.
Thanks as always for clicking on my blog. Have a happy weekend. Hugs, Kathy
