Today's card is an experiment in color as the title says. I tend to get into "safe" color ruts.
How about you?
I usually pick out my main color or patterned paper in my process of creating, then choose the coordinating colors.
When I'm in a color rut, I pull out my SU Color Coach #130118 and choose the Creative Combination to complete my project. I must confess, it usually tends to be a challenge, but I move forward to stretch myself. This card is one that has stretched me.
My inspiration for the layout was the unscripted sketch #226.
The color combination the Color Coach suggested
Pumpkin Pie 105117
Pacific Point 111350
Real Red 102482
Quatrefancy DSP 130141 was the paper I used as my starting point.
Ink: Real Red 126949
Stamp Set: Lot's of Thanks 129690
Pacific Point 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon 126876
Perfect Polka Dots 117335
Whisper White Baker's Twine 124262
*SU buttons retired
I'm still not sure if this color combo is pleasing to me, but like I said, I need to get out of my color rut and the Color Coach helps me to do that.
If you have the same difficulty with color as I do, or great color combinations, why not order your SU Color Coach (pg.139 @ $14.95) and start experimenting. You can go directly to my DBWS to order that or any other of the products listed here on this post. I would love to have you as a customer and be your Creative Coach!
