Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 23

The Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 23 posting will remain at the top of my blog page through Friday night. Scroll down to view more recent projects.



After hitting you all with a bright & bold color scheme last week, I felt it was time to calm things down a bit. Look at this gorgeous inspiration room with the Sydney Damask wallpaper at Thibaut Design. I love the subtle Pretty in Pink, Whisper White & Kraft with the contrast of Basic Black!

To participate in the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 23...

1. Create a papercrafted (card, scrapbook page, or 3D) project using these colors or similar shades.
2. Post it on your blog or other public gallery (Splitcoaststampers, Paper Craft Planet, Stampin' Addicts, etc.) using the keywords Curtain Call including a direct link back here to the challenge.
3. Enter your name and the exact link to your project in the Mr. Linky box below.

Please note the new deadline will be Friday night: You have until Friday, April 2nd before midnight (CST) to enter your Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 23 project.

Join us for the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 23 and you could be one of the next Show Stoppers! We have two new award up for grabs! Those chosen as "The Lead" and "Top 5" will receive an award to post on their blog(s) and share the exciting news!




Praying for You



I inked up this lovely image from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set in Black Stazon and attached three flowers punched from the Boho Flower Punch with the Pretty in Pink Epoxy Brads. The layered designer paper is from the Sending Love & Bella Bleu pack, the perimeter of the kraft print stitched with the sewing machine. The real wow is that yummy Basic Black Satin bow!





Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers
Paper: Kraft, White Naturals, Whisper White CS, Sending Love & Bella Bleu DSP
Ink: Black Stazon
Other: Pretty in Pink Epoxy Brads, Boho Flower Punch, Basic Black Satin Ribbon
