My Inky Friends and I hold a monthly challenge on the 4th Friday of each month, and it is that time again! This time we are issuing a color challenge. As always, the inspiration for this color challenge is taken from the Annual Catalog where you can find all kinds of creative sparks.
The challenge this month is to use Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Marina Mist, and Blushing Bride on a project.
That was harder to do for me than it should have been! I just don't use some of these colors very much right now.
But, that is what a challenge is about, right? Getting you outside of your comfort zone, or out of a creative rut.
You can participate in these challenges and share your creations with all of us. Check it out and play along!
I decided to try again, with watercolor this time. I used a #2 round brush so that I could get good control of the flow of color and water, and have a nice fine tip.
I used the four challenge colors plus So Saffron and Crumb Cake. The mushroom colors are actually Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz mixed together with varying amounts of each color.
Lydia Fiedler is to blame for the mixing of colors. She recently did a video where she talked about how creating your own neutrals from the colors you are using gives the best and most organic looking results.
So this card really does have my personal touch, fingerprints and smudges included!
