SSINKCC#43 Color Challenge

I love a challenge!  And anytime I use Perfect Plum it’s challenging for me!!  That color just sits there waiting to be noticed by me.  In face, my upline, Anne Matasci and I started a Purple Plum Color Challenge with each other on Pinterest that we haven’t bothered with for over a year.  So I’m reviving the challenge, Anne!!

That brings me to today’s Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Color Challenge SSINKCC#43.

I just dove right in & hated the colors when I started, but now I think it really works!!

In fact, I really like it a lot!!  Where’s the plum?  It’s in the sentiment and the dark color on the roses.

I was in a hurry this morning and decided to CASE one of my own cards.

Remember this gorgeous DSP and Everything Eleanor?!!

Here are the measurements so that you can CASE it, too!

  • Stamps:  Picture Perfect
  • Ink:  Melon Mambo & Perfect Plum
  • Paper:  Whisper White Card Base (5 1/2 X 11, scored at 4 1/4 and 4 1/2 X 1 3/4), Tip Top Taupe (5 1/4 X 4, 2015 – 2017 In Color DSP Stack (4 1/4 X 1 3/4), Melon Mambo (4 1/4 X 2)

Be sure and check out what other great ideas the SSINK Team comes up with for combining these colors!  And join us by adding your card in the color challenge SSINKCS#43!

Oh What Fun!!!

Guess what I just learned how to do?!!  Picture Collages where I can feature all my favorite “go-together” colors!!

I often have customers ask my how to pick out colors that go together to make a card.  By clicking on the category, COLORS!, on my side bar, you’ll see many beautiful color schemes to choose from.  Ok.  Today you’ll only see one.  But I’m inspired!!!  So I plan to keep adding lots & lots of these!
