The AWOW team and I are hopping today — here on our blogs, and on Instagram — and this month’s challenge is a color challenge. Grab a cup of coffee, and take a trip around the world with me to see what all of my global stamping friends have done with this challenge!
For this color challenge, all we were given was this image:
Such a pretty photo, and I love Paris… These colors reminded me of the 2023-2025 In-Colors. I see all 5 of the new In-Colors in this — Copper Clay (the leaves), Pebbled Path (the Eiffel), Wild Wheat (the leaves), and Moody Mauve and Boho Blue as part of the group of houses/train station at the bottom. Here are those colors:
I could have taken a more literal route and chosen the beautiful DSP from the All About Autumn Suite. When I first saw this photo, these papers are the very first thing I thought of:
The only thing is, this paper is not currently available and I wanted to go into my stash and see what I had / could come up with. I immediate found the Ringed With Nature bundle and thought that would do well – mainly because the mushrooms look very “french!”
Here is my card:
I used Pebbled Path as my base, and a Pebbled Path piece of DSP that reminded me of the lines on the Eiffel Tower. I like how this turned out – simple, not too involved, so a quick and easy card with just stamps, ink, and paper. And, I like how I pushed myself out of the obvious!
Let’s see what my new Around the World on Wednesday friends did. Next up in the Hop is Shel Anderson from Canada.
Happy Stamping friends! Kelly
