Wild Flower Patch Wednesday #21 ....Color Challenge!



Well Hello Again!

This weeks Wild Flower Patch is all about the color combo of Lime Green, Lavender and Black. When I first read the details I was a little apprehensive but once I worked out the details, I have to say that I am pleased with the results. I really like this color combo!!!


Once I found the right design paper for my card, everything else came together wonderfully! My design paper ( by Die Cuts With A View) is a print with mixtures of lime green and lavender which helped me put my summer theme card together. Because the color black is a prominent color, I used it as a an accent with the hair,buttons and card stock base for the sentiment. My image, Beach Ivy is colored in with Copic Markers and I embellished parts of her outfit with Stickles.

You have a week to complete your challenge card and remember to let you imagination run wild and have fun with this weeks challenge! Now for more Wild Flower Patch DT inspiration and the challenge rules, please click here.

Hahaha, I have to laugh that you were apprehensive about the colors! When I picked them I thought, oooh these will be fun and then when I started working and picking an image I was rethinking that quite a bit. YOU did such a great job with the colors though, I love how you did her hair and the rest of the color combo is perfect! Gorgeous work this week!
