Dawn McVey has started a color challenge and I decided to play along. I "know" Dawn (I totally DON'T know her, but I feel like I do--I read her blog and have a glimpse into her life, so I'm using the term loosely here!) from her design work for Papertrey Ink and her numerous cards in various papercrafting publications. She has a keen eye for color and is known to put 4 or 5 colors on one card---HORRORS! I remember when I began stamping I was specifically told---"no more than 3 colors for a card"---WHAT?? Yep, seriously, that's what I heard---over and over---but Dawn came to the rescue! I love challenges--they get me stamping when I'm stuck---and sadly, lately I've been stuck a lot! If you haven't been to Dawn's blog you MUST go---she's a stamping hero of mine. I love her style and I think you will, too.
Here's my take on the card---this is a simple layout that took me FAR too long---again, "stuck"---but here it is anyway! I hope to do quite a few of her color challenges, so keep your eyes peeled for some crazy color combos!
Short and sweet today. If you have any questions, let me know and I'll answer them~
