Default CC371 Whispering Grey Sand (4/18/12)

Hey! Happy Tuesday stampers! I'm your color hostess this week - and you know me - I like it quiet and even-toned, so today's colors are neutrals.

(Sorry - I have the wrong date above it's 4/17 of course!)

I was inspired by a photo in a magazine showing drapes in wide, grey and white horizontal stripes against a sandy colored wall - and my color challenge was born!

Whispering Grey Sand

Whispering White
Basic Grey
Sahara Sand


My dessert option is to use stripes since that was what inspired me this week!

It might be a good time to do a masculine or sympathy card with these subdued colors don't you think??!! or maybe something else?! - I can't wait to see what you create to inspire us all!

Our Design Team this week:

Artystamper (Julia Aston) me!
MaryR917 (Mary Marsh)

Our inspirational April Guest Design Team:

kokirose (Pat)
atsamom (Kim)


CC371 Gallery


Please keep in mind, too, that while we list SU colors for the challenges these are just color reference points. Use the closest colors you have. We want everyone to be able to play!!!

Please put CC371 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

I just finished uploading a card, came over here to check out the color combo for this week and it was the colors I used for the background of my card! I do have Regal Rose in there too, so if it is too far off, just let me know and I will remove the keyword. Here is my card, Banner Rose.

I was all set to make a nice, soothing nature-themed card with these colours and it turning into this! Oh well, you did mention making masculine cards, right Julia? I hope the yellow button doesn't disqualify me from the challenge!

What a nice change of pace for this week's challenge! Love the soft, neutral colors and combos like this one are certainly in vogue. The dessert stumped me so I added some stripe-ish fibers.
