Uh...it doesn't sound good, but I'll trust MamaK and try it. I'll reserve judgement until then.

This should be interesting! I had wanted to try last week's challenge, but never got around to it. Hopefully this week, I can make at least one.

I'm back from my errands to find orchid opulence and going gray? Hmmmm. Not sure about this. I have card stock but no ink. Hmmm. This will be a real challenge. But that's what this is about!

This is what I came up with. I used black as the neutral. I think it probably would have looked better with a hint of ballet blue. Not sure.

Hmmm........I have NEVER used orchid opulence. EVER.

Now, why couldn't they retire THAT color?!

Sounds like a true challenge for me!

THanks for the color challenge, it was really fun! Now if only I had more going grey paper...... I'll just add it to my list for my first July order I guess. Can't wait for the new cattie to arrive!

I liked this combo, It is one I'd probably use myself, although I may add a few more colors to accent. Thanks for the challenge!

OK, I happen to like these colors together. So here is mine. I used the aquapainter with the ink pad to watercolor the flower. I then took the marker and highlighted the flower. I also highlighted or shadowed the flower with the gray ink pad and aquapainter. Enjoy!!!

I was looking forward to playing today but sadly have no Orchid Opulence.
Will try next week. Can't wait to see everyone's artwork!

TLC16 finally got me to try Valerie's Definition Sheets. I have made a few backgrounds but this is the only card so far. I also want to thank Kaylyn Butler Conover who posted the RGB codes for all the S-U colors allowing me to tailor my definitions to match the cardstock. This card combines TLC16 with CC14:

I was able to post 2 for the challenge. I don't really like the 1st one, and will probably try to reconfigure it but I thought I would post it for the challenge. I think the 2nd turned out okay. Enjoy!

Good morning, I did this card late last night. I forgot to put in the description that I used pop-ups on some of the flowers. The scanner really did a good job of flattening out the flowers. Looks much better in person. Hope you enjoy!

Could you send me the link to the RGB codes? I could really use them for my scrapbooking. Thanks!

Here's mine. These colors look pretty nice together, plus I found that Mellow Moss ink looks good on the grey cs.
