October 2019 Color Combo (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you! Last month (for the second time in a row) we stretched the challenge for two months, since I was traveling to Italy with a friend in September for two weeks, and that gave me extra time off to enjoy that trip!

Here is my color inspiration for this month - I love the warm colors, perfect for this time of year and the thoughts of cozy days inside and books to read seem wonderful:

I began this card by creating an inked heart on the background. To do this, I used the coordinating die for From the Bottom of my Heart to create a stencil, then blended on distress oxide inks in Scattered Straw, Rusty Hinge, and Festive Berries. I also added some black splatters to the background with some Pinkfresh Studio Licorice Liquid Watercolors.

Next I die cut one of the "thanks" words from In a Word: Thanks Coordinating Dies two times, once from black cardstock, and once from white cardstock with Everegreen Bough Distress Oxide Ink blended on to custom color my sentiment to coordinate with the Color Combo.

Finished off by adhering the die cut words together slightly offset for a shadow effect, adhering them to my card base, and stamping a coordinating sentiment underneath with In a Word: Thanks stamp set.

Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! I absolutely LOVED everyone's take on this challenge photo! So much fun to see how everyone used it! I wanted to pick everyone, but had to limit myself to these three! 

First up - I'm loving this artsy card by Jenny Martin - such a lovely card, and great take on the challenge inspiration! 

Next up, I love that Experiments in Craft was inspired much like me by the fun background on the challenge photo! And I love the touch of glitter she added to this fabulous card!

And finally, we have this card by Deepti...beautiful background, LOVE those hearts, and the sentiment is perfection!

  1. Gorgeous card, Heather!
    I will make an effort to create a card well before the deadline.
    I have a tendency to start creating when the linky is almost closing and often run out of time that way...
