I thought I would share another of the fun activities we had for our Aussie Demo Cyberstamp last weekend. It was a colour challenge … and I really did struggle with these colours. I decided I really didn’t like them … but then I saw some of the other submissions … and realised that sometimes it is getting the balance of the colours right that makes a colour challenge work well. Some of the other cards were just lovely!
But … mine??? Not so lovely!!!
So … the colours given …
Bordering Blue, Riding Hood Red, More Mustard & Ivory Naturals (or Very Vanilla)
Another “yikes” … but again … it was a challenge … so I had a go!!!
This layout was also based on Amy Rysavy’s lates sketch challenge – a repeat of an “oldie but goodie” … AmyRS5
I would like to try this sketch again with nicer colours! So … here is my card for this cyberstamp colour challenge …
Now … please don’t feel you have to compliment this card!!! I REALLY don’t like it … and for some reason just couldn’t make the colours work. But … I thought I would be brave and show you anyway!!!

Hope the weather is as beautiful in your part of the world as it is here at the moment. Yes! It is the middle of winter … but the days are full of gorgeous sunshine … and really mild. The kids and I had hot chips at the beach yesterday for lunch!!! There was a slight chilly breeze … but it was so nice to get out into the fresh air & sunshine! 😀
