At One Layer Wednesday this week, Ardyth‘s set us a ‘Spice Girls’ challenge … no not the girl group, but a feminine OLC inspired by a spice, condiment or flavouring. This theme seemed to fit rather well with AnnaBelle Stamps‘ colour challenge to use Cocoa, Waterfall and Pumpkin … so I combined them …
For me, these colours are strong and spicy … and with a little artistic license, they could be saffron, thyme and cinnamon. I love the colour block look on the AS inspiration picture … although achieving that on a one layer card is pretty challenging at the best of times … without the right colour inks for spongeing, it nigh on impossible.
But I really wanted to do some colour blocking (d’you hear the pitter patter of a little foot stamping?) … and after some pondering and a quick Promarker check, I found some perfect colour matches. So the background panel was Promarkered, then overstamped with the flower branch (from AS Garden Silhouettes), which was embossed in white. The sentiment came from the same AS set and was embossed in cocoa/cinnamon. I wonder what the odds are of having that exact colour embossing powder in a supply that only includes four colours??
I’m off for a happy tour around the blogosphere to see what creative delights I can find. Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always such a joy! Anita 🙂
