So Shelli Challenge
So Shelli, and a monthly challenge. This month she has challenged us to use a color combination from the fabulous new Color Coach. She said, and I quote: "Branch out of your usual color comfort zone and try a new combination." Holy carp, did I push out of my comfort zone with this card! And, wonder of wonders, I really like it!!! (Hmmm, methinks I need to use the Color Coach more often, lol.)
I knew I wanted to use the deep gold of More Mustard for the sponged sky around the masked sun, so I was curious to see what other colors the "Coach" recommended. I never would have thought of Cajun Craze and Night of Navy, but once I pulled out the cardstock and held them together, they just clicked!
