Default CC258: Soft Perfect Plums!

Okay! Here we go! They do not call it a challenge for nothin'! We are using the dreaded plums this week. I say that because as much as I do not gravitate toward the pinks, I physically run from purples or any hue thereof. The shocking part is.....I LOVE the plums with the suede! I cannot believe I said that. I know I say it every week, but you are going to be amazed at these colors together. Truth be told, I shock myself each week. I love these colors together because they are so different and least expected. Many of you will need to dust off these ink pads. I did. I actually think it was the first time perfect plum and pale plum were opened. Well, I may have opened them at some point, but they sure looked new to me. So, without further ado, this week's color combo is.....


CC258: Soft Perfect Plums

Perfect Plum

Soft Suede

Pale Plum

Neutrals of Choice


This week's dessert option is to add a critter(s). Whether it is stamped, punched, or some other art form, just add bugs, butterflies, pets, or birds! Or, any other critter you may like.



I asked Barbara and Deb to sample with me this week. Thanks so much, girls!

Bar(Barbara)

DebHorst

CC258 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 CC258 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!

I will be hosting the color challenges for the next few weeks. If there is a color combo you want to see using any of the new in colors, please pm me with the link to the card. Try to stay within three color choices. Thanks so much!

Default Wow, challenges work!

This is my 2nd challenge. If you look at my gallery, I have NEVER made anything that looks close to this. I took out the 3 papers you suggested and set them on my desk and inspiration just hit me. This was fun.
