Pals Paper Arts Celebrity Color Challenge #79


Ashley Cannon Newell is our Celebrity Color Challenge Guest. Check out her blog and see her work. She is an inspiration!

Another fantastic group of colors! At first I did NOT know what to do with these colors. Then I figured to just put the two that I thought the most "opposite" together. Of course, they are not opposite at all, but go together very well. I started with a neutral color of Crumb Cake and decided to make a card to fit into Stampin' Up's Small Open End envelope (107826-$7.50 for 20). They are a nice size and come in Whisper White.

My Elements of Style hummingbird hovers over the waves of distressed scallops I created with the Scallop Edge Border punch. He is glimmering with Smooch Spritz, but the photo doesn't show it. Each border was cut and then distressed using my fingernails to separate the layers of paper a bit and fold each scallop upwards. Then I used sticky tape to adhere them to my Crumb Cake base.

I cannot wait to see what you have created. Please let me know in the comment section if you played along. I'd love to check out your project!

Stampin' Supplies:
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry and Riding Hood Red
Stamps: Elements of Style
Ink: Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry
Extras: Scallop Edge Border punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Stampin' Write Marker in Rich Razzleberry

The scallops make such a beautiful effect! Very pretty card - and I can't get sparkly or shimmery things to photograph well either. What is the trick to that???

Kim said...

That scallop effect is so pretty! Great card, for what I think is a difficult combo!!!

Patti - this looks incredible! Your card kind of looks like ruffles - I love it! You did a great job with a color combo that has stumped me. Although I'm getting lots of inspiration now. :)
