The colors for this week’s Dynamic Duos challenge are Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black, with an optional ‘clouds’ theme.
At first, I wasn’t sure I could work clouds into a card. And then when I began working on the idea I devised, I wasn’t sure Tempting Turquoise would work on a sympathy card! But this is what I created with today’s challenge points:
I used an MFT Jumbo Cloud Stax die and two Memory Box Puffy Clouds dies as masks in sponging the Tempting Turquoise background. It was my first attempt at this kind of sky/cloud-scene sponging, and I don’t think it turned out too badly. I don’t really think of Tempting Turquoise as a sympathy card kind of color, but I thought it worked okay here, in the end.
Make sure you stop in to see what the rest of the Design Team have created and to check out the details for this challenge. I hope you will participate with us!Allyson Andersen (me) | Christina Barnes | Vicki Burdick | Karen Day | Deanna Dean
