I made this card for this week's color challenge which uses the colors of Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry. My goodness, this challenged me - BIG TIME! It is quite cool here today in Minnesota so I decided to do a fall card in nontraditional colors. This really is a big stretch for me, but I had so much fun doing this so I do appreciate this color combination a lot. This stamp set has a solid image and an outline image to it. For each leaf, I used the solid image only and placed it in my MISTI. Then I took 2 sponges using Rich Razzleberry and Dapper Denim inks I sponged the color onto the stamp where I wanted it. I sponged and stamped each leaf 3 times to get the color intensity that I wanted. Then I fussy cut each leaf out so I could have die cuts for the dessert portion of this challenge. Gotta love dessert, right? Still, I was struggling how to fit the Bermuda Bay into this scene. I decided to stamp the acorn in Bermuda Bay and it is so darned cute in real life. Then I did some very light shading behind the leaf cluster in Bermuda Bay and that brightened up the whole card. Whew! Thanks for looking today. ~Karen.

You did such an amazing job with these colors! I love how you didn't shy away from the color vibrancy even you were not comfortable with the combination. Saving the Bermuda Bay for the acorn was a brilliant strategy as it just POPS against the darkers colors.
