Color Inspiration Challenge #50

Another color challenge!! Woo!!

This challenge was HARD for me! I definitely used more layers and general stuff than I normally do. It was also my first time using chipboard! Chipboard is fun! Must.Get.More.

The colors:
brown - cone, felt ribbon
red - swiss dot embossed label frame, cherry
yellow - grid embossed label, polka dots on white ice cream scoop
turquoise - dotted background on card base, ice cream scoop
white - card base, ice cream scoop, polka dots on turquoise ice cream scoop, grid on cone, stitching on ribbon

This card has so much going on. That grid background is a CHF stamp that is so cute. The felt ribbon is awesome! I painted the chipboard by running ink pads across the chipboard. I also added crystal effects to the cherry to make it look more like a cherry. I tried to use grid and polka dot textures in different ways: ink, dry embossing, heat embossing. It was good for me to try all of these new things!

Alright, I have so much work to do. It is definitely a transition figuring out this new job!

Thank you so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,
