It's my turn to make a mid-month sample for Stamping Sensations. The current challenge for the DT mid-month posts is to create a project using our least favourite colour to work with.
My first thought was, of course, that it would have to be pink. I'm certainly not a lover of pink.My favourite colour is blue, followed by purples and greens, cool colours. However, I do use pink now and again in my cards, albeit the softer, dusky shades which, depending on what I'm making and in combination with certain other colours, I actually quite like. It's the hot, bright pinks that I really dislike. However, the colour even less likely to figure in my work is orange. I would use it in small amounts along with greens, reds, yellows and browns for an autumn theme, but not as a main colour, so I decided to go with it for my mid-month sample.
Hmm! Easier said than done! I have very little in the way of orange card or papers in my stash! A search produced a few sheets in shades of coral, peach and apricot in a 6"x 6" multi pack, and an odd A4 sheet in a slightly brighter orange which I used to cover the front of the card.
We've had lots of lovely entries already for our August Challenge, but there is still plenty of time to enter if you are inspired by this or any of my teamies' beautiful projects on the Challenge Blog, and don't forget that there is the fabulous prize of a £50 voucher from Tattered Lace for the lucky winner! Thanks for looking!
