July Color Challenge

This is probably one of the easiest color combinations we've had for our monthly challenge, but, oh boy, did I struggle with it. I knew exactly what I wanted to do, but then when I sat down to do it, realized that it used the same techniques that I had used on the birthday card last week; and even one of the same stamp sets.

I argued with myself that it would be ok, because it would show different ways to use the same things. "But it wouldn't be different enough." The devil's advocate side of me finally won the debate and I pushed myself to create something totally different. (See, even demonstrators have crafty struggles and debates!)

I decided these colors would make a good birthday card for a boy (or a KU fan). I stamped two of the splatter images from Gorgeous Grunge on the Sahara Sand cardstock in Real Red and Pacific Point. Then I ran it through the Texture Boutique machine with the new Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder.

I punched out 3 Hexagons with my punch and then cut them into fourths, creating two triangles and two diamonds. The Happy Birthday greeting comes from Peace, Love, & Cupcakes. I added two Pacific Point Candy Dots; and there you have it.

If these colors inspire you, please play along and post your project at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration!
