Color Combo Challenge at Penny Black Day 2


It's day two of the color combo challenge and just look at the deep, rich, yummy colors.  They work like magic on Penny Black's stamp Holly Concert 4337K. 
I love having a color combo for inspiration!

I've used Penny Black's stamp Christmas Reds and Greens.  It's not being used it as a Christmas image here so I put little white enamel dots instead of using Christmas red.  I originally stamped the image in black ink, but found it too stark so I overstamped it using Delicata gold ink.  Love the shadow effect with a shimmer that isn't captured by the camera.  Don't you love it when you can use a Christmas stamp that can be used all year round? The background was made using Distress inks smeared on an acrylic block, spritzed with water and then the watercolor paper laid on it.  The butterflies just showed up and I invited them to stay!

I hope you will visit the Penny Black blog and read about the challenge.  Your card can be any theme and there will be a new color combo posted every day this week.  And there will be prizes!!  Read about it here.

It is hard to think about Christmas with our 99% humidity and high 80's temperatures, but you know how it always happens before we are ready!  

Stop by again tomorrow ... I have a card made for each color combo this week.  Love sharing with you and so appreciate it when you leave a comment!!
