Hello there! Happy Tuesday! I don't know about you but I think it's time we did another Color Challenge! Whatdya say??? :)
Today's photo is one that I took at Urban Arts & Crafts last weekend. It's a snapshot of some of their beautiful specialty papers....aren't they gorgeous?! A few things to keep in mind about the colors.....
We're using chocolate brown for the bronze-y color you see on the papers. The bronze color looks a lot darker when the light's not shining right on it, so that's why I've chosen to use a chocolate brown for that color. The aqua is a light aqua -- not a bright turquoise. AND, the cream color is strictly optional. I know some girls feel like they really need a light neutral of some sort so use it if you need it, but if you can get by with the other 4 colors, that's totally fine too! I'll be using Papertrey's pure poppy, aqua mist, dark chocolate, kraft and vintage cream but just like always, you can feel free to use whatever brand of crafting goodies you have on hand. :)
Another thing to note, the challenge will run thru the weekend and will end next Monday (see specifics below).......what that MEANS is that you coooould make your challenge card this Saturday for World Card Making Day and have a little card fun to celebrate the big day, while also participating in the challenge! ....just sayin'.... ;)
Can't wait to see what you come up with this week! I think this will be a FUN one! Remember to let yourself enjoy this creative process.....don't stress about it! It's just paper, right? :) And for those of you that have said that you don't feel like your cards are 'good enough' to play along, EVERYONE is 'good enough' to play along! This challenge is JUST FOR FUN so there's no reason for anyone to feel like they can't play too! You just might be surprised at the feedback you'll get from your fellow crafters.....feedback that can be so encouraging and just might help boost your mojo!
All righty, have a ball and I'll anxiously await your projects this week!
