Cyberstamp Colour Challenge

Hi again!

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 …

Sat 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!!!
