Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 17



We've been craving some warm sunshine here in the Midwest, so what a perfect color inspiration this photograph is for this week! I found this wonderful inspiration called Sunshine Yellow Color Pallette from The Sweetest Occasion. The colors of these vintage clutches remind me of So Saffron, Going Gray, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, and More Mustard.

To join us in the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 17, simply create a papercrafted project using these colors (or similar shades), post it on your blog or other public gallery (Splitcoaststampers, Paper Craft Planet, Stampin' Addicts, etc.) using the keywords Curtain Call, link your posting back here to the Stamping Stage, and then come back to enter your name and the exact link to your project in the Mr. Linky box. You have until Saturday, February 20th before midnight (CST) to enter your Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 17 project.

Those who are chosen as Show Stoppers will be awarded this badge to post on their blog and share the exciting news! I will be picking more than one Show Stopper for every ten Curtain Call Color Challenge submissions!



Embrace Life



I went a little crazy with the color spritzer...spritzed a little to much, I think! Anyway, I love the layout of the card that I found in the new Paper Crafts magazine...wow, there's some great inspiration in there! Have any of you ever sent a card to Paper Crafts for a contest before?

I did a little collage stamping using the Embrace Life stamp set. The images were inked up in So Saffron & Going Gray, then colored in with More Mustard and a Blender Pen. I spritzed some more color (More Mustard & Going Gray) over the entire card, so you'll see hints of it here and there:)

Oooh, what a fun colour combo. Hope to be able to play again this week. the Olympics are taking first seat to most things since we are the host city and I'm an Olympic junkie so hopefully, I can sneak this in sometime. Great sample card. I sent you my e-mail. Let me know if you didn't get it and I'll post it in a comment here.

I don't think you went over board with the spritzer at all. It looks great. Love the houndstooth. I haven't used ANY mine, yet. Although I do have a houndstooth idea planned for sometime down the road.....

Sue said...

Stacey,
Hope you don't mind but I decided to try a second card, a more manly card card with your color selection. Having a fun week here in Virginia.
