Mary Marsh gave us the following vibrant colors for today’s Color Challenge:
The dessert was to add a brad or button with a summery theme. Since I didn’t have an appropriate one, I didn’t add one.
I decided to use today’s colors in inks with a brayer. Obviously, you can see the blue and yellow. I forgot color theory when I added the Plum Pudding ink over the yellow. Complementary colors cancel one another out and I ended up with a more burnt sienna tone than true plum. I always brayer light to dark when I use this technique…..maybe this time I should have done a corner in the Plum Pudding before the yellow…..but I doubt that would have worked either. I’ve been gone this week-end so I ran out of time to do another. : (
It’s been fun being a guest designer this past month and I thank Betty Wright for the opportunity….and all the “color ladies” who gave us wonderful color combinations to work with. : )
