Bold & Bright Challenge

Last week Paper Crafts magazine released a special Color Inspiration for Card Makers issue and over on the Moxie Fab World blog they celebrated the release of this special issue by holding a daily colour challenge. Each new day revealed a new colour challenge that readers could play along with.

Since I am constantly inspired by colour and often use different colour combos as my starting point for cards, I decided that this challenge would be perfect for me to play along with. I encourage all of you to play along as well. It's super fun! You have until the end of the month to complete all of the colour challenges.

First, check out these bold & bright colours:

Now, here is a look at the card I made for the Bright & Bold Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week in the Moxie Fab World.

I loved the colour combo, but totally hit a brick wall trying to decide on a layout. I eventually grabbed a magazine sitting nearby and started flipping though it. My eyes came to rest on an ad for the RCMP, and I thought "Eureka! This is my layout" ;) I tweaked a few elements here and there to suit my purposes.

Super happy with the end result. And I can't wait to share the rest of my colour challenge cards with you over the next couple of weeks.

Marn - this is awesome!! Love that you took on the challenge. I checked it out and I might just have to try my hand at one. I don't think I would've picked the Bold & Bright challenge (too intimidating!) but I LOVE how your card turned out! Love the stitching, the subtle colour on the eiffel tower and that sentiment! I think I've asked you about it before, but I forget where it came from? - I love it. Did you emboss it, or just stamp it? It looks SO good. Way to go, Marn. I hope you try out the other colour challenges too. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

This is so pretty Marnie. I love the stitching you added and the hint of colour in the image. It's perfect.
