Perfect Peacock: TGIF Challenge
Anyways... it was back to reality yesterday, so after I got the kids to bed, off to the craft room I went. I decided to start my crafting with a challenge, you know... get the old creative juices flowing again,
TGIF Challenge blog. This week's challenge: A colour challenge! I love these! Design a card using the colour combo: Basic Gray, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight! This is challenge #TGIFC15.
Perfect Peacock... Now, I can't say that in any other circumstance, I would have chosen this stamp for this colour combo... but I borrowed it from my MIL awhile ago and it was right there on my craft table, so I decided to run with it. Weird, I know... but I like the end result... who would of thought it would of work!?! Not me!
I stamped my peacock in Basic Gray ink onto Shimmery White cardstock and then coloured it in with Basic Gray, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight markers.
Now, I know what you're probably thinking... that I cheated, and added green and various shades to the colour combo... But I didn't! I only used Basic Gray, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight markers. Seriously! When you over lap the Pool Party Marker with the Daffodil Delight marker... you get... green! Who says you need it all!?! Don't tell my hubby I said that! ;) Also the various shades in my colouring is just from colouring over it 2 or 3 times.
Well, thanks for stopping in. I hope you like my take on this colour challenge and make sure to hop on over to the TGIF Challenges blog to see other great samples! Happy creating!
