I'm so lucky to be the guest designer this month at Color Throwdown. I won't lie.. I still have a hard time with color challenges. The first thing I do is pull a sheet of card stock in each of the colors so I can think on them. I was certain I was going to use the inspiration photo and make something with a butterfly, but I got to thinking about this fuchsia stamp I bought but never used. Next was picking out some patterned paper (you know I can't live without it LOL!) Do you know how hard it is to find paper with any shade of purple in it?
I colored the fuchsia in Copic markers and then fussy cut them. I layered some different pattern papers and then slipped in a little "get well" sentiment stamped in purple. A sprinkle of sequins for a little bling factor and to pick up on the purple a little more.
Are you smitten with this color combination? Maybe you should give it a try! Need a little more inspiration? I know the Color Throwdown DT will blow you away!
Have a great day and I hope I see you at The Color Throwdown Challenge!
