Default CC127: bayou sand

I had to make a sympathy card for a family member who lost a childhood friend to cancer this past weekend. So the colors are a bit muted and perhaps boring today, but I think you can do something lovely with them!

CC127:

blue bayou (taken with teal)

sahara sand

chocolate chip


My sample


CC127 Gallery

Please put CC127 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card! If you need help uploading click here!




As always, I am open to suggestions for future color challenges! Please pm me if you have one. DO NOT SEND ME AN EMAIL!! If you do not include a sample, it is harder for me to use it! I will probably not respond, as I get several, but I save them for future reference!

Thanks for the colours Emily. Sadly, we all need to do muted, gentle cards from time to time. Not sure if i'll go down that track or if I'll do something bright - hmmmmm - thinking, thinking.

When you can't sleep, you STAMP! Quietly, of course, so as not to wake up the rest of the household.

Please take a look and let me know what you think.

Sorry to hear that, Emily.

Unfortunately, I didn't order Sahara Sand. Do you think Kraft would make a suitable substitute?

Otherwise, I'll just watch for all the beauties

Fun colors...although I'm not totally happy with my card. I did add a little yellow as an additional accent color. The thing I like the best was using the airart tool to add chocolate speckles to the main image.

Emily, I was so eager to do this challenge and then I realized I do not yet have SS paper or ink so I substituted with River Rock. Hope that is OK.

HERE is mine.

Hi, everyone! Wow, Emily, you sure can pick some color combos! I LOVE this one! I also FORCED myself to use Artfully Asian, one of my "must haves" that is rarely used.

Here is today's submission:

Emily, these were great colors and I had a quick early start this morning before I have to get to school and continue getting things ready there for school.

Oooo... sounds like an interesting combo. I rarely use Sahara Sand (it sits in the back of the paper file box) I can't wait to play. I'm sorry to hear about the loss, Emily.
