I know a ton of people do the challenges at SCS and I keep telling myself I have to give them a try, so today I took a leap and did the color challenge! At first when I looked at the colors, I wasn't too sure about the whole thing. But then I thought this is a challenge, right? This is something to make you think a little out of the box or out of your comfort zone. The colors for today are Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss (or Old Olive) and More Mustard. I don't know that I would have ever put these colors together but once I started working on the card I was really liking the color combo.
Here is my card for the Color Challenge.So what do you think? I don't have any of the Kiwi Kiss CS so I used the Old Olive. The butterfly stamp and the rose flourishes in the corner is from the All Occasion stamp set from Inkadinkado. I used the Wizard from Spellbinders along with the Labels Four S4-190 and Classic Frames S5-012 die templates to make all of the diecuts.
Here is a close-up of the butterfly. To do the butterfly I inked the body with Old Olive, then took the brush tip of the Rose Red marker and made brush strokes coming out from the body. Then I inked the wings with More Mustard and for the final step I did the Rock-n-Roll technique using Old Olive. I did the butterfly twice, once on the diecut and one that I cut out and glue the body down on top of the other one. I also added a little diamond stickles to the butterfly.
For some accents I also added tiny little pearls on the frame and in the corners of the card.
