Simply Colorful ...

Pin It


TGIF hoarding card-makers and welcome to the weekend! And, since it's finally another Friday, it's time for another "Stamp Simply" challenge!

This week, Sharon has a color challenge for us. These colors are rich and so pretty together as we transition from summer into autumn. And autumn comes earlier to some of us than other ... and some of us never have autumn :(

Today's color are turquoise and orange, with white or ivory as your neutral and you may add black for a little 'pop.' Here's a photo of an inviting boy's room to get your colorful and creative juices flowing:

Orange and turquoise has long been one of my very favorite color combinations so this challenge was especially fun for me. I did, however, take the 'autumn' concept one teensy step further:

To play along in this week's challenge ... and we hope you do! ... simply create a paper project using the inspiration photo, above, for your color palette. Then, upload it to your blog or online photo gallery and visit Sharon's blog, located HERE to link up your project in Mr. Linky, located HERE.

When uploading to an online gallery, such as Splitcoast Stampers, SNR, or Paper Craft Planet, please use keyword: "ssnotime154" so that we can find your project.

knitwit said...

What a gorgeous fall card! But I'd like to know what boy lives in the bedroom in the first picture. Because I want to adopt him! If you used a picture of either of MY boys' rooms as inspiration for a card, you'd end up with a pile of spaghetti-stained scraps taped to a playing card!
Hope you're having a great weekend!
