Fab Friday #128 is a color challenge: Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, and Emerald Green. I love Fab Friday challenges for a few reasons, one of which is that it’s a 2 week challenge. For this one, I need to think about what to do, and how to incorporate the 3 colors.
I kind of knew right away that the Emerald Green was going to be the base, then decided I’d go back to one of my previous checkerboard (inspired by Mary Fish @ Stampin’Pretty.com). DSP makes this card easier, and I decided on the In Color Fresh Florals DSP. Have to say, I wasn’t originally a fan of this paper but it’s growing on me. I used the Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst for the 1.25 inch squares, lined everything up in a dry run on the layers Whisper White and Emerald Envy, then used my liquid Tombow and craft tweezers to get the squares placed. That’s when I decided I really needed some black to calm the colors down, so enter the Basic Black cropped scalloped circle, the sentiment from All Things Thanks stamped in black (with the other part of the sentiment masked off), added a bow, and I was done.
Originally, the OCD part of me wasn’t a fan of the color variations in the patterns of a single sheet of the DSP, but I’m getting better about it. It really seems to just work with this layout.
Here’s the Fab Friday color challenge:
You’ve still got a week to play around with this challenge, so what will you do with it?
Have a Peachy Day!
