A Color Challenge

Today's challenge on SCS was to use one color family... I choose my least favorite color family of BOLD BRIGHTS. What can I say... I'm always looking for a challenge! I picked glorious green and brilliant blue from this collection because I had alot of both colors.

I'm surprised how much I really ended up liking this card. The colors look much better than I thought they would... so much nicer that I want to throw out a color challenge to see what you come up with!



Make a card using Glorious Green, Brilliant Blue and White, then post a link back here in the comment thread. You can upload your card to a Splitcoast Stampers gallery or your blog so I can go take a peek at them all. I'm gonna make a few more projects with this color combo too.


Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

I too don't care for the bold brights all that well, but you're right, this looks great! I have to admit I did use a lot of glorious green (and handsome hunter, another I don't use often) at Christmas. Real red usage was high then too -- how obvious is that!! Your card is beautiful. I am off to make cards today, so maybe I will give this color combo a try -- valentine's in blue and green... interesting!

I just got this cute cowboy in the mail today and just had to try him! His hat, scarf and holster are up on dimensionals. Fun colors, Michelle, and you used them to their fullest potential!

Here's my Sheriff
