Curtain Call Color Challenge: {ACT 43}

A new Curtain Call Color Challenge is posted every Sunday! This posting will remain at the top of the page until the challenge closes on Friday night. Please scroll down to see updates through the week:)

Isn't this such a fantastic Scandinavian-flare inspiration photo from decor8? I love the bold brights of those modern pillows...totally Stampin' Up!'s Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango & Pacific! Last week, we used some NEW In Colors...this week, use some old ones:) Can't wait to see what you're inspired to create with this bold and modern Curtain Call Color Challenge: {ACT 43}.

To participate in the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 43...

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 43 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, August 20th before midnight (CST) to enter your Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 43 project.

Join us for the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 43 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!

Grunge Rock

For my third and final attempt at this awesome color combo...this is what I came up with! (My first attempt is now in the bottom of the trash can.) I really wanted to use this rockin' set called Grunge Rock with the modern and bright color inspiration. It was fairly simple to put together...(after a few practice cards...LOL).

Stamps: Grunge Rock
Paper: Pacific Point, Whisper White CS, retired DSP
Ink: Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss
Other: Tangerine Tango Striped Grosgrain

Here is actually the second card I made tonight (remember, the first one was pitched...yes, it was that bad:)

This one would be perfect to place in Hannah's lunch bag on her first day of school!
