A couple of weeks ago I threw out a challenge - the Cranberry Sauce pic, If you were lucky, you will have completely missed it. It was a colour challenge. Well I don't think anything has ever given me as much bother. I made this, I made that, I could not get the colours to work together. It was a range of reds and purples with a little light grey. if you must see the hideous challenge pic, click here. I started out liking the picture, but by the end of it I was grinding my teeth...
In the true spirit of bad workmen everywhere I decided that the materials were at fault, a blind man on a galloping horse could tell that quite obviously I didn't have the right shades of cardstock, ink, papers, ribbon - everything was the wrong colour.
Nothing at all to do with the fact that I was obviously completely colourifically challenged the day I picked such a dodgy image....
Ended up going all minimal and cheating slightly...made up a little felt baggie - I trimmed an oblong of felt along one of the long sides using a Spellbinders edgeability die. I then folded it in half and stitched along the 3 other sides to make a baggie. Punched a circle of grey cardstock and stamped with the Hyacinth image from Vintage Garden Flowers. With love is from the Opera Tags stamp set which should be restocked soon.
Things that made me sad about this project: My total inability to make a card with this palette
Things that made me happy about this project: There is chocolate inside the bag.
