Blogger’s Challenge Week 21

This week’s challenge was a color combination challenge–we were to use Pumpkin, Olive, Brocade Blue, and Chocolate Chip.  We could also use white, vanilla, or confetti as a neutral.

I used Chocolate Chip for the background, and layered it with a piece of Basic Grey’s "Cultured" patterned paper from the Mellow collection.  I cut paisley shapes from Pumpkin Pie, Brocade Blue, and Old Olive with Nestabilities scallop paisley dies.  I then stamped them with SU!®‘s Paisley background stamp, and inked the edges of all with Chocolate Chip Classic ink.  I sprayed silk flowers with adhesive and sprinkled them with fine gold glitter, and the flower centers are vintage brads.  The sentiments are from JustRite self-inking stamps.


I love doing these challenges for a couple of reasons: 1) I don’t have to choose "what" I’m going to make, and 2) they make me think.  I do like getting ideas from other paper artists, but I also love the challenge of having to come up with my own interpetation.

Thanks for looking!!!
