Sunshine Stamping Colour Challenge No 6 - Remembrance Weekend

Sat 12 Nov 2016

Hello! How's your week been? I'm still working out how best to write up my colour challenges for you. This week, I'm going to try leading with the card I've made, and following up with the colour combination itself - do let me know what you think. Is it better this way round, or do you prefer having the colour combination picture first?

Sunshine Stamping Colour Challenge 6 Card

I do love this stamp set, and I thought I'd have a play with some watercolouring. This was done with our Stampin' Up! inkpads and an Aqua Painter, using our Watercolour Paper. What do you think? I'm still learning with my watercolouring, but I'm pleased with this one. I was also impressed that the new Stitched Shapes framelits were able to cut so crisply through the watercolour paper, as it's quite a bit thicker than our normal cardstock. I love this stitched effect - really adds a finishing touch.

The message is a simple one. It's been impossible to get away from politics this week, what with a certain election "across the pond", so for this Colour Challenge I wanted to focus on something positive and beautiful. Tomorrow is Remembrance Sunday, and people all across the country have been wearing their poppies as a mark of respect for all those who lost their lives so that we might enjoy ours. 

Here's the photo I based this card on, and the one that forms this week's Colour Challenge. It had to be poppies this week, didn't it?

As always, I'd love to see what you come up with using this colour combination. If you're feeling inspired, why not add a picture of your card in the comments, or send one to me in an email. Let me know what you think of these Colour Challenges - I'd love to know what you think!

Thanks for dropping in. See you soon... xx
