This is the inspiration photograph for this weeks challenge at "The Play Date Cafe" and this is the challenge!!
Time to shake things up a bit and get really creative! Are you ready?
It's the first...'colour horribilis' challenge! Sarah Anderson is our host with the creative idea for this week, so let's just see what this is all about....."Are there any colours that don't go together? That clash? Or is it just the tones of the colours that don't work out?
Navy Blue, hot pink and mustard yellow."
I really struggled to come up with a card that I actually liked, after playing with some flowers and ribbon and all sorts of combinations of paper I eventually made this card.
I love this bird cage die cut from Tim Holtz, I already had the cage cut out in a piece of old music paper, I just distressed it with Chipped Sapphire to give it dimension. The bird is cut in hot pink card and then run through the cuttlebug in the "writing" embossing folder to give some texture. Although the ribbon looks black, it is navy blue and the yellow shading is also Distress Ink, this time Scattered Straw.
I am not sure if I really like this but its going to be my entry this week as I can't think of anything else. My mojo is a bit lacking as, all I can think about is having to go back to work next week after having such a lovely summer break.
I have realized that this card also qualifies for "The Simon Says Stamp and Show" Tim Holtz inspired challenge.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend, and if you are from the UK have a great Bank Holiday Monday!
Supplies: Hero Arts Digital butterfly, Distress inks in Scattered Straw, Chipped Sapphire and Tumbled Glass.
