Curtain Call Color Challenge: {ACT 40}



I couldn't resist the fun and lively color inspiration from this stack of Ikea kitchen towels posted on the What's For Lunch Honey blog. The photographer, Meeta, on this inspirational blog is one talented gal! The Tempting Turquoise, Kiwi Kiss, Real Red, Basic Black & Whisper White was perfect to ink up the new Funky Four stamp set! Can't wait to see what you all come up with this week!

To participate in the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 40...

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 40 and make sure to include a link back here to the challenge.
3. Enter your name and the direct link to your project in the Mr. Linky box below.

Please note the deadline will be Friday night. You have until Friday, July 30th before midnight (CST) to enter your Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 40 project.

Join us for the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 40 and you could be one of the next Show Stoppers! We have two awards up for grabs plus a giveaway (details below)! Those chosen as "The Lead" and "Top 5" will receive an award to post on their blog(s) and share the exciting news!





Thanks a Gazillion

I really enjoyed this color combo, though I didn't think I would! Thanks for always challenging me to try new things!
Your little tree is so adorable, as is that little turquoise button. Lovely design, Stacey!

Julie Gearinger said...

Love your card and all of the other samples. This one was out of my "comfort zone" but I am glad I tried it (isn't that what the challenges are all about?) :-) I decided to make two cards- both completely different.

Thanks again for the weekly inspiration!
