This week's challenge at Color My Heart is to use Honey. No...not the sticky sweet stuff, the color! Since we could use any other neutrals, I paired it with Slate and Black.
When I was done with this one, I got the inspiration for this one:
I could have kept going. Lovin' that gray and yellow combo. I think I mentioned that a couple Color Dare's ago.
Anyway...I owned some retired CTMH Gray Wool and Flannel so I was reluctant to purchase the new Slate and Whisper colors. What sold me was how the new Slate and Whisper have a warmer undertone which makes it work with the yellows and Honey in particular.
Here's the lowdown: On the first card, I used Sightseer and the Word Bubble set that comes with the Artiste cartridge. I inked just the edges of the "thanks" Word Bubble in Slate so I could use "Oh snap!" from Sightseer instead. The second card is just the Word Bubble set. I inked it in Slate, then went back over the "hi" and a few parts of the flowers in black pen. After the ink dried, I colored the flowers with a Honey marker. I don't have the alcohol markers, so I can't tell you if that would have smeared the ink. Anyone out there in blog land know? The other accents were Slate Washi Tape and a few pearls (Hobby Lobby or Michaels).
Can't wait to see what you all come up with on this challenge!
Until next time,
