Color Combo Challenge Day 5
It's been a fun week of color combos at the Penny Black blog! You have until September 27th to enter a project in the Color Combo Challenge using any or all of the combos. The details are here.
This is the last combo, and as you can see, I've taken some liberty with the colors. I've used dark brown cardstock for the base and a duller shade of orange and a brighter shade of the gold. As long as the colors are in the same family or a different shade, you have followed the guidelines for the challenge! The image is from Penny Black's Blooming Garden. As you can see, I've stamped it twice and added a layer of petals for dimension. The butterfly is a Creative Die Flutters by Penny Black. I colored the seam binding with a Copic marker.
Hope you will join in the fun!! A color combination is a great starting point when you are short on ideas!
Last night I attended a talk given by a gentleman who was on the 19th floor of Tower 2 at the World Trade Center when it underwent a terrorist attack. The talk was mesmerizing. The gentleman is now suffering from what doctors have told him is a terminal condition due to the hours he spent in the dust and debris cloud before he was able to leave the area. Needless to say, he is a changed man both physically and spiritually. I was honored to hear his story and remember the victims and their families.
It's been a pleasure having you as my guest today!!
