Color Challenge at Gingersnap Creations


Gingersnap Creations has posted the new color challenge today, and it is..... Monochromatic!  Make a creation in any color at all, but just that one color family. (I'm assuming a little added neutral is okay here, or else I've, *gulp* got it all wrong, LOL!!  Seriously, though, the Gingersnappers are a NO STRESS group.... be creative, do whatever you'd like, just keep it basically monochromatic.)  For my card, I wanted texture to be the star, since I was only using one color family.  So for the base layer, I've used a Paper Temptress ruched paper called Sky Blue Crepe.  It looks like crepe paper, but has the weight of cardstock - very cool.  I stamped the Stampington & Co. image onto blue mulberry paper, and layered it over a strip of vintage text.  Then I just added some hydrangea petals from a big box floral, and found a sentiment that I liked from my vintage text page and called it done.

Gingersnap Creations is being sponsored this month by the Paper Temptress, so you know what that means.... blog candy!!  Enter any of the GC challenges this month (you can see them all in the left sidebar at Gingersnap Creations) and you'll have a chance at your pick of four gorgeous paper selections from the Paper Temptress.  So why not make one of those holiday cards you need in a monochromatic scheme, and suddenly you're multitasking, LOL! :)  Have fun!
