Embellish Magazine Color Challenge

 


 


COLOR CHALLENGE:
The color combination is purple, kraft, and brown and we are using it along with the design element of stripes, which can be added through patterned paper, ribbon, stamping, etc.  Use the above picture as inspiration if you like.

I had a good time with this challenge.  I'm not a HUGE purple lover, but I do love the paper that was created for this challenge which is available on the Embellish Magazine blog.

Can't wait to see what everyone creates for this challenge and how different they all turn out.  Make sure to stop by and visit Clear & Simple Stamps at CHA (booth #659).  I will be helping out with the make 'n' takes and wandering the floor at other times.  I can't wait so make sure you see me, stop and say "hi"!
