CC109 Color combination challenge:
Real Red, Sage Shadow, Basic Black
Let's face it. I am not a 'red' person. There are very few colors that I think red looks good with, and Sage Shadow is not one of them. I laid out the three challenge colors on my table, and I won't tell you what the colors first said to me, but it came down to 'ugly, yet....vintage'. I used stamps that I adore so that maybe I would not hate my card too much. I don't hate it, but the colors still are not pleasing to me.
The weird thing is that I have 3 kinds of red ribbon, and used two of them on this card. The ribbon was purchased for Christmas projects, no doubt. :)
Lace is from an old retired set. I used Sage craft ink, embossed it with clear powder for dimension, and punched out the circular holes to make it look even more like eyelet lace.
The ovals were cut by hand. The roses were going to be on a layered rectangle, but a vintage cameo came to mind, so it had to be an oval.

I'm looking at the thumbnail as well....I'll check back later for the big picture! What I can see is awsome, you did a great job!
***I think it's fun too to see which colors people like and don't like. Red is a favorite for me but I rarely use Yoyo Yellow, Going Grey or Glorious Green. Now ~there~ would be a color challenge for me, lol!

Alice I have the full picture here and it is GORGEOUS! I love the lace down the side very creative way to make that look so real. Love the red ribbon, I would say from this card that you do GREAT with red and should use it more often. Added to fav's. TFS!
