Blogger's Challenge #63: Color Challenge


Okay, this is one "outta sight, groovy..." card!

I was first inspired by trying out the Starburst Technique, a Technique Junkies Tech. I've shared before about the creative, awesome resource that the Technique Junkie team is! (And I'm not just saying that for the girls on that team who are also BC members!) Whenever I need a creative lift, I go to www.patstamps.com and check out one of the over 350 techs that Pat has shared over the years. I've been a subscriber since 2003, I think!

Anyway, I did a couple Starburst tech cards for a contest submission and then when I checked out the colors for this week, well, the combination of that and the tie dye thing was just fun! The tech calls to use a brayer and a spectrum pad. I used the reinkers and a baby wipe to make my own spectrum pad. The colors for the challenge were: Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point.

Thanks for looking and go see what my fellow bloggers came up with...AND...if you come up with your own card or project for this challenge, let me know! I would love to see it!
