I think I was struck by the depth, richness and beauty of these uncommonly paired together colors. Aren't you just in love with it?! ;) Well, here is your challenge: Make a card or project using at least THREE of the colors you see in the picture (Brown, Navy Blue, Orange, Ivory, and Gray) . Now, notice I am not making you use every color, or specifically the-elephant-in-the-room-color "orange". LOL! ;) With that said, I would love to see some Chocolate Brown, In the Navy and Pumpkin Spice combinations!
Here is my card to help you see how these colors can come together nicely. I got the orange in there, too! : P
I started off with a grey base then layered with Ivory, In the Navy and Chocolate brown. That fun vintage-y tape between the ivory and navy blue is Tim Holtz's Nostalgia themed Tissue Tape. I used Nina Brackett's "Grand Damask" set to create the pattern on brown. I stamped it several times with Versamark and then added ivory flocking on top to give it that "velvety" feel to it. I didn't have any orange embossing powder so I heat embossed the sentiment from Nina's "Fanciful Tags" in white and then went over it with Copic marker YR18 (that'll teach me for passing up getting orange embossing powder thinking I'd never use it!)
Please upload your creation to the STV gallery, using the tag STVCOLORJANICE5. You do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did! In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE! Please be sure to create a new project for the challenge versus linking up something you've created before.
You can find all the projects entered for the challenge here: STVCOLORJANICE5
Oooh lovely card. Any way you can add that green (bedskirt) in the mix? :)
These colors are really pretty Janice - and I think I see gold in there too. I wish I had some of that fancy velvet paper to use for this challenge, LOL! Hope you had a happy WCMD! :)
