Hey all, it's Tuesday, and that means time for another awesome color challenge over at colourQ!!! Please go check out the FABULOUS samples my DT buds have for you today. I have to admit I was almost baffled when I saw these colors, as I've said before, pale pink is not my thing! But then I had the idea to incorporate these colors with the Cameo Challenge over at Moxie Fab World !!! We are on (yet another....) snow day, so I had some time.
In keeping with the "cameo" idea, I wanted my main panel on this to be an oval shape. Behind the oval is a Kraft card base that has been scored around the edges, there is also the negative frame from a Top Note die cut in Pretty In Pink. I have to admit, that was the ONLY piece I have in Pretty In Pink, so I HAD to use it! ;) I dry embossed the frame in my Cuttlebug and then layered a strip of Kraft patterned paper on a strip of Pink Pirouette. The oval panel is Blushing Bride, which is probably my fave color of these 3 pinks. It has a orangey quality to it, which I like. for the image of the cameo I was in a bit of a pickle. I didn't have any die cut cartridges with a profile or a silhouette of a lady on them. Then I started thinking how cameos were not always profiles or silhouettes of PEOPLE. Actually, insects have been popular motifs on jewelry etc. for hundreds of years. So, the bee seemed a good fit for the card. Here is a cool sample of a cameo look bee necklace I found on etsy! :) The final detail on this card was this cool flower from Martha Stewart Crafts:)
I hope you like my card! Please comment or follow if you can, I'd LOVE to hear from you! :)
Have a stellar day!
