OCC Challenge - Color Challenge w/ a Twist

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Hey guys!  We have a fun and unique challenge from Our Creative Corner for you today.  I've seen color charts before, but I've not made a card based on complimentary colors.  You can see the color chart to the left.  The challenge is to use three colors in order from the chart.  

For my card, I used three colors in the lower right quadrant.  I chose a medium blue, aqua blue, and green.  You can also use black and white. I love how the colors pop off the white card stock.  

I actually used three stamps from three different stamp sets. Each layer is popped up on foam dimensionals.  

Be sure to check out the other samples at Our Creative Corner.  You'll find lots of inspiration from all over the color chart.  

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Terrific job on the color challenge, Dana. You really stayed true to the analogous colors and they look wonderful together. Love that you put the bright colors on a solid white background - it really pops. This card just shouts "HAPPY".
