Today's challenge over on The Play Date Cafe is a 'Color Splash' challenge ... inspired by the photo to the left. 'Color Splash' is simply black & white with a 'bit' of color. I've always liked black & white with a spot of red or yellow ... but I'm really liking this color and couldn't wait to see what I could come up with.
I decided to again use an image from Shabby chic papirskatter ... a wonderful new vintage blog I found that has some fabulous images to share! Thanks Heidi!!
Other items used on this creation are as follows:
Papers: Tempting Turquoise cs, Whisper White, Basic Black & Foof-a-la designer paper
Inks: Versafine black
Accessories: Petaloo silk flowers, Doodlebug sugar coated brads, Waterfall Stickles, Turquoise Spica pen, Hobby Lobby organza ribbon, Bow Easy, JoAnn's lace
I actually have shades of turquoise and aqua on this creation but I think it works! After getting it all together, I kept thinking the bow up in the right corner needed "something" ... but since I already had it adhered, I wasn't sure what I could do! Then it came to me, I just added a touch of "waterfall" Stickles on the knot for a little touch of sparkle and viola!! Perfect!! (please see inset for closer view & click for an even closer look).
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'm busy working on projects and waiting for this terrible snow storm that is supposed to be coming our way! Boy, I sure hope they are wrong ... I don't want any more snow!! Have a great day everyone. Please don't forget to stop back tomorrow for our next RAISE THE BAR challenge! Hope to see you then!!
