Hiya friends, welcome to another week at The Color Dare! We were thrilled to see so many talented crafters join us last week--thank you! This week, Riley's got a doozy of a color combination--at least I thought so. CD 92: Pure Poppy, So Saffron & Very Vanilla. Seems simple right? Well....I have to admit, I still have not completely embraced Pure Poppy and find it challenging to work with. But that's what this is all about, right? Challenging ourselves outside of our comfort zone. So without further adieu...
I like the paper I used and the stamps...just not crazy about the final result! And, I had to throw some Chocolate Chip in there because I was swimming upstream on this one, lol! Love the new Framed Tulip textured impressions folder though! And so yummy in Chocolate Chip don't you think? The background paper is Botanical Gazette designer series paper and it is sooo pretty. This piece was already distressed, I just added the stamped images from Nature Walk, starting with the row of speckled eggs along the bottom, in Chocolate Chip, and the floral image in Pure Poppy.
I also added the waterspots from French Foliage in So Saffron, the sweetest bumblebee from Nature Walk in Pure Poppy and a Chocolate Chip sentiment from Cheep Talk. I matted the whole panel onto So Saffron CS
and added a double row of the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border in So Saffron & Pure Poppy. Some yummy Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon with just a touch of Chantilly Crochet Trim finished it off nicely. I repeated some of the images on the inside, leaving lots of room for a quick note of Christmas thanks--still working on those!
So there you have it! I am confident that y'all can come up with something fun for Color Dare 92! Be sure to check out the rest of the design team, below, for some fabulous inspiration. If you play along, be sure to link up your project over at the Color Dare blog and use CD92 in the description. Can't wait to come visit you!
