Color Palette Challenge Review

Print

It’s time to do a check in on Color Palette Challenge 8 projects. We’re thinking ahead to autumn and more subdued colors with this month’s palette. Kraft, Orange Fizz, Fuse Green, and Nightshift Blue combine to work as a non-traditional Halloween scheme or a gender-neutral combo appropriate for any number of occasions. Dominant Kraft or Nightshift Blue provides a neutral base for pops of Orange Fizz and Fuse Green or, go crazy relying on some of the more vibrant colors in the mix to prevail.

Sharon started with a Nightshift Blue Card Stock Base and then layered on some tone-on-tone elements. The sentiment, from the Spotlight Sentiments stamp set, is balanced by a Panel cut with Blueprints 18 and “watercolored” with Fuse Green, Nightshift Blue, and Orange Fizz Premium Dye Inks using the Jumbo Polka Dot Stencil.

Lisa’s card features card stock, Sheer Sparkle Glitter Glaze, and the Geek Is Chic stamp set and Geek Is Chic Glasses Die-namics from Laina Lamb Design - that’s it! And it’s fabulous! Stamping the glasses image in the full complement of this month’s color palette results in the coolest patterned paper.

Tone-on-tone stamping in Orange Fizz and Fuse Green provides the subtlety while Nightshift Blue on Kraft provides the *pop* on Julie’s fun card! The die-cut panels from Blueprints 18 make an appearance again here.

Sharon’s card features groovy ghosts populating the Square Grid Cover-Up Die-namics. The Spooky Scene Die-namics features a trio of ghoulish goblins for maximum design options. A phrase from the Spooky Sentiments set completes the look.
