Today I decided to participate in my first ever color challenge on Splitcoast. It was a lot of fun. I created two totally different cards for the challenge. The first was made with a retired set called Beautiful Beach - it is a 3x3 card using Wild Wasabi (boo hoo, this will be gone soon), Taken with Teal and Whisper White. I stamped the shell and sentiment in Wild Wasabi. I then sponged the shell with Wild Wasabi and Taken With Teal. I used 2-way glue on the lines of the shell and added dazzling diamonds for a sparly touch. I then placed the Taken with Teal Square on the card front, wrapped front with twine and then popped up the shell on dimensionals. (Oh yeah, I cut out the shell!). I think it turned out great. I might find a set that is not retired and make something close to this for convention swaps. Oh yeah, I can not wait until convention.
The second card uses the same colors with Lovely as a Tree for the stamped image. I used glossy card stock, after stamping the image with Versamark and white embossing said image, I sponged Taken with Teal and Wild Wasabi over the entire image. I like this card too, but not as much as the first.
