Wow! These colors were truly a challenge....but in a good way! Having to step away from my favorite 'same old, same old' colors was actually easier than I thought!
The sketch came together easily but trying to find colors close enough to the challenge colors was tricky! I pulled out all my scraps and laid everything down on the floor, trying to find the right hue. Kind of like matching up a pair of socks in the dark! In the end, the brown proved to be the most challenging.....the sentiment fixed that!
I am a bit unsettled with the balance of this card, specifically the bottom half. If I wouldn't have glued the flower stems down so well, I would have re-positioned them so that they criss-crossed about 1/2 inch higher than where they do on the card. Not a biggie, but I think it would have taken care of that 'gap' near the bottom. I did try 'squishing' in an extra leaf or two, but the result looked 'squished'....imagine that?
Remember the piggyback is optional. Give it a try if you want. If not, then use the sketch alone to create to your heart's content. Don't forget to share your creations with us! Just click to link
