Over at the Simply Stampin' challenge blog we have a colour combo challenge for you this week.
It's good to be challenged and go outside of your comfort zone - that's what I kept telling myself anyway LOL! I have to come clean and say I did find this combo very challenging until I found a method that worked - to use only vanilla CS and just ink in the other colours. That worked for me after a few attempts that used coloured CS which I wasn't at all happy with.
I made a side opening A6 size Very Vanilla card, stamped the sentiment and then added score lines with my fabby new tool, the Simply Scored. I then stamped, punched and fussy cut a load of buttons - I did go a bit button barmy LOL! I glued most of the buttons flat but popped a few up.
More buttons on the inside and envelope finished everything off.
Please do give this challenge a try, I'd love to come and see what you make with this interesting colour combo! Don't forget, you can substitute similar colours if you don't have the exact SU! colours listed. If you don't have a blog you can send an entry by email - we're a very flexible bunch you know! We just ask that you use one main SU! product in your project - a stamp, punch, die or patterned paper, for example.
