Around The World On Wednesday November Blog Hop Fall Color Challenge


Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday November Blog Hop and this month we have a color challenge to share with you. We have been challenged to create our project using colors from the beautiful Fall image below. Our wonderful Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas to showcase the colors they chose from this design. 
For my card design, I chose to use the Balmy Blue, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Basic White and Basic Black from the challenge image. I wanted to show what Fall can be like here in Colorado. I chose to combine the snowflakes from the Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks with the die cut leaves from the Aspen Trees Dies to represent the beautiful Fall leaves and the unexpected snowstorms we can have here during this unpredictable season.

This card design is a combination of different techniques. For the leaves, I used a Watercolor Smoosh technique, combining Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry Classic inks and spritzing them with water to create an intense background on Basic White cardstock. After drying the cardstock with my heat tool, I die cut the leaves to create the beautiful Fall colors from the challenge image. For the background of my card design, I chose to use Balmy Blue Classic ink to represent the blue sky from the challenge image. I used the snowflakes mask with a Blending Brush to create the feeling of falling snow, which is not uncommon here in Colorado in the Fall. The sentiment was heat embossed with Copper embossing powder onto a Basic Black label die cut with the Nested Essentials Dies. For me, the Copper represented the metal frame of the Eiffel Tower. The Iridescent Rhinestones add a touch of bling to the snowflakes to create the reflection of the sunlight. This was a fun challenge and I loved taking the different colors from the challenge design to help create my card design.
