This week is my turn to host the There She Goes challenge! Can you guess what colors I chose for the color challenge?!??? Hehehe Yep! I'm challenging you all to create some cards with the colors Green, Orange and Black! It doesn't have to be a Halloween card, but why go against the grain?! ;)
Even though it's my turn for Trendsetter week, I thought I'd give myself a bit of a break in the coloring department and simplify things a little. I used the ghouly ghosts from the Hauntingly Delightful set and the only reinker color I used on them was SU's Going Gray! To make them pop, I sponged a combination of Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink around them. Then just for a little sump'n, sump'n, I added a sprinkling of crystal glitter on them.
I meant to make that bow bigger, which is why there's space over the ghosts on the main panel. Oops! Each panel was sponged with Distress Inks and machine stitched to cardstock. I can't get enough of that MME Boo To You paper! They make the best stuff don't they?!
So now it's your turn; make a card using the colors in the challenge and then head over to the TSG blog to leave a link to your creation so we can all oooh and aaah over it! Who knows; you could be the winner of a $5 gift certificate to the TSG webstore!! :)
