Colour Challenge No. 2

Sat 15 Oct 2016

I've got a lovely colour combo for you this week. Feast your eyes on this beauty:

Sunshine Stamping Colour Challenge 2

Isn't that just the most stunning photograph?! It's actually suggested flowers for an autumn wedding bouquet, and I found it at http://www.americanmeadows.com/blog/2016/10/03/diy-fall-wedding-flowers/ . I think it's just beautiful!

Here is the card that I was inspired to make using this combination:

Sunshine Stamping Colour Combo 2 Card

Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie really feel like they shouldn't work together, but I love this combination. It's vibrant, and cheering, and a perfect antidote to the cooler days that we're having at the moment. The die-cuts are from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, which as you can imagine I was desperate to get hold of, given my business name. I hadn't noticed the little butterfly before, though - I'd always thought it was another flower. What do you think? Butterfly? Flower? I'm still not 100% sure, but I think it looks great as a butterfly here, with its sparkly body. And I adore that scribbly flower shape! I layered two together on this card, a Melon Mambo one on top of a Basic Black one, to make it pop. The black is quite subtle, but it really makes a difference to how it looks. 

This one has gone off as a birthday card to one of my lovely team members, and I hope she likes it. Happy Birthday Emma!

Everything that I've used today is available in my Online Shop. I've popped a link to everything at the bottom of this post; just click on any of the photos and you'll be able to see more details. When you order, don't forget to use the current Hostess Code - you'll find it over there in the right hand column.

If this colour combination inspires you, I'd love to see your projects using it. Pop a photo in the comments, or drop me an email, and I'll share my favourites so everyone can enjoy them.

I'll be back tomorrow with another sketch challenge. See you then - have a fabulous day! xx
