Some color challenges come easy and other not so much. Today's falls into the latter category for me. In fact, in PMing with some other SCSers with whom I correspond regularly, I had said that I wouldn't be doing the challenge. Well, it IS a challenge, so I decided to give it a "go". : ) Julia(artystamper), indeed went "arty" with the colors she chose for today's challenge:
The dessert was flowers, but I decide to do a non-representational image.
When I find a color combination that is difficult for me, I find minimizing one of the colors sometimes helps. Here I did it with the Real Red.

As difficult as this challenge was for you, Sallie, you pulled it off with wonderful flair!! I love the modernist design, which to me, looks somewhat like a foggy morning and street lamps. Maybe this is a scene out of London and the summer Olympics! The small amount of red framing is perfect!

Thanks for taking on the challenge Sallie! It is a GREAT idea to minimize one color when having difficulty using certain colors! love your wonderful sponging of the blue and purple - and the checkered background - at first glance I thought the image was a vintage stand up telephone!!
