Moxie Fab Jewel Tones Challenge


is celebrating Card Maker's Week

Sugar Cookie, Sunshine, Pansy, and Blue Calypso
The challenge is to use only these colors in a New Project

-----> HERE <-----

I have no clue why I cannot seem to take a decent photo to save my life!! I actually held my cardstocks up to this computer monitor before I began to verify that my colors matched! They DO, however, my photos LIE!!!

Here is a close up of the clouds I created out of FOAM. I got the idea to cut them out using the Spellbinders Scalloped Oval Dies from Jacilynn. I then embossed them with one of the Stampin Up embossing folders. Pretty cool huh? The large cloud is popped up on foam squares. My SUN was created using a Spellbinders "Lacey Circle" Die

How PERFECT was this Gina K "Friends" Sentiment for the inside of my card?

Wow, you sure are nailing the color combos, Justine. I've enjoyed browsing through each of your entries for the Moxie Fab challenges. . .and it's good to meet another military wife ;D

Hi Justine. Thank you so much for your sweet comment, but I beg to differ ... I'm just obsessed. And have no other hobbies. Anyone can tear cardboard, smear on some paint and spray ink.

And this one is just perfect for this color challenge. I REALLY struggle with multi-color challenges and alot of the sketches too. I get in color ruts, so I need to step out of my comfort zone more and try bold colors like this. And girl my photo's lie to!! I spend waaaayyyy too much time trying to get the right shot.

I bet you are warm and still wearing flip flops hear and there. Don't you just love FL.
Texas has been great as well!

Now, you need to send that card to me! We need a little freakin' sunshine up here! ;)

I completely understand how matching colors from the monitor to the paper and then to the picture is a hard job! I think you've done a fantastic job with this combination, and I recognized the combo before I read your post. What a fun and creative idea as well to emboss the foam.

I have to agree with you about trying to match colored CS to your monitor, I struggle too. What a genious idea to die cut and emboss the fun foam ... I have a ton of it and thanks to you, the wheels are in motion!! I just love your take on this challenge, superb!
