Arrow IC558 - Color Blocking {08-13-16}

I hope your week was colorful and cheerful despite all the normal challenges of life! Speaking of colorful, this week's inspiration challenge plays with color blocking. Color Blocking is an interesting design technique that we spot often in packaging, clothing, and even certain types of marketing materials. It grabs the eye and transmits energy and emotion! To help us with our color blocking challenge I've selected a delightful Color Blocking Pinterest Board by Kathryn Elaine.

My Thank You Card
My Encouragement Card
Video Inspiration:
Challenge Goals:
Please don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image on the board reminds you of it - this is all about creating from an inspiration. So, please take the challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow based on the images you browse this week. Remember, it can just be the color palette or style that ignites your creativity. Whatever draws you to the designs, take the challenge of doing something uniquely inspired today.

Please remember that all inspiration links should be inspired by the Color Blocking Pinterest Board by Kathryn Elaine (feel free to be inspired by the video above too). Remember that your card might also end up on my Ongoing Inspiration Genius Board too, especially if it shows signs of extra deep inspiration! (smiles)

Use the keyword: IC558 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC558 Gallery


For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, or just don't subscribe to Pinterest, I've uploaded 10 of my favorites. So just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS. Don't forget to let us know which photo served as your inspiration piece please.

Audrie - this was a totally fun pinterest board & challenge that took me back to the 60's fashion scene in my mind. The dress I chose for inspiration turned out to be a tad trickier than I'd anticipated (see description with card) but all's well in the end! I hope you'll check out my card:

I chose the dress that had orange and black in it and decided on doing a Halloween card today: Here is what I chose.

Audrie, here is mine Color Block Feathers.

I always get sidetracked when I get on Pinterest. First think this morning I looked at your challenge, went to Pinterest. Something pops up that someone pinned my pins, then off I go! LOL Eventually I did get back to the challenge though. Thank you!

I was inspired by the bold watermelon and peach colored wrap dress. I wanted to keep the idea, but make them less bold but still show the difference between the two colors, so I toned them way down.

Here is my card - MISS YOU

This was fun. A while back I saw a Mondrian inspired card here on SCS and thought I wanted to try that. The dress I chose helped me get it done.

Audrie, I loved this challenge! What a wonderful site to gather inspiration. I've held my card until now because I wasn't sure it totally met the challenge requirements. If it's not okay I will understand if you move it out of the gallery. Here's my Autumn Wreath card.
