I was determined this week to combine the color challenge and the sketch challenge from SCS and this is the card I came up with. The colors for the color challenge this week are: Garden Green; Cool Caribbean & Chocolate Chip. These are particular colors I would have put together but that is what I like about the color challenge it takes you outside of what you would normally do. I didn't even know I had garden green until I went looking at the color combo site to find out what green I had would match the best.
As the sketch had a squarish shape mounted on it I decided to use one of my "my favorite stamps" stamps and this is the one I decided to use as I liked the idea of coloring the ladies dress chocolate and caribbean and then reversing those colors for the background. The green panels are stamped using the weave background which I just love with brushed corduroy distress ink. Its hard to tell by the photo but I have also sponged the sky on the main image. The grosgrain ribbon has been colored using my tria markers again, I am loving how I can achieve the color I want without tooo much effort or mess and I have sooooo many shades of markers much better than ink pads.
