Today’s Dynamic Duos challenge is for the colors Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie.
Not a combo I would normally choose, as you know! So I immediately went all fetal position with my usual response to situations like this – minimize that stinkin’ color as much as humanly possible. LOL!
I bought this cute little Hero Arts rubber stamp at Michael’s a month or so ago, and I thought it might be a fun element to use for these colors. I colored it with my Copic markers, added a few touches of glitter pen to the orange spots for a little sparkle, and then fussy cut it to adhere it with foam adhesive. My blue is a bit darker than Bashful Blue is, but I tried to pick from my limited supply of Copic markers those that were relatively close.
Since I am COMPLETELY DAFT when it comes to orange, I just played it safe and used an all-white card to highlight the image in the center of a negative-die-cut opening. I used Tuxedo Black ink for the sentiment, stamping off once to lighten it up just a smidgen.
I’m so sorry not to be more spectacular with these colors (as if I ever AM spectacular! haha), but it’s tough to get a decent card out of me with orange, let alone a spectacular card with orange!
