FTTC80 – Silke’s Color Combo Challenge



Hello everyone~

FTTC80 Color Combo Challenge 17Aug2010

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC80)!!  Silke Ledlow is our challenge host.  She is challenging us to a color scheme!  This one is not only easy and fun, but the colors are sure to make a beauty.   Simply make a card using the four colors of hot pink,  soft yellow, kraft, and black  that are listed in the picture and link it here!  While Flourishes stamps are not required, if you have them by all mean use them! We would love to see what you create!


What do you think of my card? To be honest, the combo was not so easy for me, but I really love how it was turned out :):) I used Summer Botanicals set (on sale!) for the silhouette poppy image. I simply stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with black EP. Then sponged the oval mat with the combo colors. The kraft background was dry embossed with the embossing folder. The sentiment from Tag Lines was stamped on the fancy tag. To finish off the card, I embellished with the bow I made with latte satin finish cotton ribbon and pearls.

It's always fascinating to see how the same colors can look so different on every card depending on degrees and arrangements. This is a beauty, Maki! The black silhouette really makes everything pop!
