Basket Bunch and the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #446
February 23, 2017
Today we have a Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge.
Did I hear you say "yikes"?! Well, that was my first thoughts when i saw this combination. Where to start? This is what I did. I pulled out scrap pieces of the card stock and clipped them together and put them on my stamp table. I would arrange them and rearrange them in different orders hoping, just hoping that inspiration would strike. Well, it was coming down to the wire and I was still drawing a big blank. In a last ditch effort I thought maybe I should ink some stamp up and maybe the colors won't be so bold . Guess what was on my table? Yup, Basket Bunch! I looked at the set and it hit me...what is orange and green? You got it...carrots!
I inked up a lot of carrots in Emerald Envy ink and colored them in using a Tangerine Tango marker. Cutting all these carrots out took no time at all thanks to the Basket Builder dies. I incorporated the Rich Razzleberry by using it to make a basket with the liner being Tangerine Tango. Thanks again to the Basket Builder dies which made this so easy. I used an Aqua Painter and a lot of water to thin down the Rich Razzleberry ink to use it to color in the bunny's ears and tail. The cute little bunny's bow tie is also Rich Razzleberry just not diluted with as much water.
The cute sentiment is part of the Basket Bunch stamp set. I decided that I needed to pull in more of the Emerald Envy color so I used Emerald Envy ink for the sentiment. So, what do you think? Did I do okay? I have to tell you that I am relieved and happy that I made something that doesn't look too forced. I would love to see what you make with this color combination. Please join in the challenge and be sure to check out what the other designers made. I know they came up with something brilliant!
You really hit a home run using these colrs! Perfection!
