This time the challenge over at the Watercooler Challenges is a colour challenge:
I wasn't sure of the colours to begin with because I wouldn't have picked them for a card. But then, that's what challenges are for: to push you into territory that is unfamiliar and uncomfortable. Still, it took me a while to decide just how I would use the colours together and what direction the card design would take.
I used Naturals White as my base cardstock. I wanted something neutral that would compliment all three colours. Next I cut a layer of Rich Razzleberry and used my little star punch to cut stars along two sides. I attached that to the base with my Snail tape runner, pushing it as close to the top and right hand side as possible while still leaving a narrow border for the base to show. Then I cut a piece of Whisper White and stamped it using my Hardwood background stamp and Crumb Cake ink. I cut a matte for the piece out of Crumb Cake cardstock, leaving only a narrow border. I attached that to the card with Dimensionals, pushing it as close to the bottom and left hand side as possible while still leaving a narrow border for the base to show.
Remember all those stars that I punched out of the Rich Razzleberry? I took six of those and attached them, using Dimensionals, along the left and bottom of the Hardwood layer. I coloured some rhinestones using my Daffodil Delight Blendabilities and then mounted those in the centres of the empty star shapes. Then I mounted some uncoloured rhinestones in the centres of the Rich Razzleberry stars.
Finally I was approaching the finish line and had to decide on my sentiment. I knew it would include Daffodil Delight because I didn't think the coloured rhinestone were enough to represent the colour. So I cut a star from Daffodil Delight cardstock using my Stars framelits. Then I used them to cut a smaller star our of Whisper White. Prior to cutting the Whisper White, I had stamped it first with Rich Razzleberry (off-stamped once) using my Work of Art stamp set and then with Black Memento ink using my Yippee-Skippee stamp set. I used Snail to attach the Whisper White onto the Daffodil Delight and then Dimensionals to attach the matted star onto the card.
I didn't like the empty top left corner or bottom right corner and so I attached Candy Dots in Crumb Cake. That seemed to finish it off.
