Default CC740 A Melody of Poppies & Clover (05-21-19)

Hello Color Challenge Fans! It's Tuesday and time for another color challenge. #740 on the charts for us

Before we discuss this week's colors, let's take a look at Jeanne's fave from last week. She chose this pretty card from Sallie aka hobbydujour.

Jeanne said: "Sallie's watercoloring on this card is gorgeous and the way she has set off the image with the frame and subtle border enhances it beautifully".

Congrats Sallie! The badge code is at the bottom of this post. Your card will be featured on our color challenge Pinterest board. See that here.

Now onto this week's challenge. I have chosen 3 bright and bold colors.

Are your ready for a melody of poppies & clover?


mango melody
poppy parade
call me clover


Dessert Option:
Birthday or Thank You

Our color divas this week

Mary aka MaryR917
Stef aka Dahlia19
Denise aka card crazy
Pam aka bailmac Sample 1, Sample 2, Sample 3
Paulette aka parknslide

CC740 Gallery

Keep in mind, 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 CC740 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge use a comma to separate them) We want to be able to find your cards!

First, thank you, Jeanne, for selecting my card from last week as your favorite. Thank you, Mary, for sending the PM to let me know.

Bright happy colors for today. I did tone down the red and used a lighter value of it. Thanks, Mary.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Mary, I didn't think I could use these loud colors together. I managed your challenge by adding water to the inks. I also got dessert. Thanks for the fun challenge. Here's my card.

Smile CC740 orange rose thank you

For today's color challenge- I needed a special thank you card for my future DIL's mom for the gifts she sent me- so I used this embossed and fussy cut watercolored rose for my main image, adding a die cut background. Finished with a 2 twine wrap with a hand written tag. Here's orange rose thank you

WOW! Mary, these colours are so bright. They worked well with the roses in the new To A Wild Rose stamp set.

Great combo! Mango Melody is one of my new faves. I skipped dessert in favor of getting a page done:

I substituted Ruby Red, Cameo Coral and Glorious Green as the closest I could get to the colour combo. "Window Dressing Mashup"

I had made extra of this, using my substitutes of Ruby Red, Cameo Coral and Glorious Green. Used it as a background panel on this card.
