Last week was a very special week for me. I mentioned in yesterday's post that I was selected as a Dynamic Darling at Dynamic Duos. And I was also so honoured to be selected as A Cut Above at The Paper Players. I was walking on air all week! This week's challenge at The Paper Players is a colour story and I really wanted to play along. But it was a challenge for me, for sure! The colours are quite bold, and I don't naturally gravitate that way. I'm more of a "softie" with sweet pinks, baby blues and buttery yellows. But I was determined...!
Here are the colours:
And my card:
I used a technique I saw on the Lawn Fawn blog about a week or so ago that I really liked, creating the sky and grass with ink. (Check out the video!). Then I just added the road and clouds, both from Paper Smooches Metropolis, and the sweet little car and sentiments (beep and zoom) from The Alley Way Stamps Priceless Joy set. Finished it off with a Paper Smooches "it's your birthday" sentiment. I'm hoping that the kraft card stock and the hints of black are considered neutrals :) I thought I could use this for a little boy's birthday.
Hope you like it, and thank you, as always, for coming by to see me!
