The good, bad and the ugly!

Fortunately I am only showing you the "good" after tossing the VERY BAD and the VERY UGLY! This was the color challenge over on SCS today. The challenge was to use Apricot appeal with rose red and tempting turquoise. Definitely a challenge for me! I had no trouble with the apricot and red but throwing in a vibrant turquoise??? Tough! Well after much frustration here was my best result. I think it's healthy to have throw aways....it helps me reinforce what does not work. You would think I'd learn....LOL!

Details:
Fancy Pants (pollen dust set)
B-line polka dot background stamp
Sentiment is SU
Prima
Piece of chipboard from K&Co
Jeweled brad by MM
Ribbon from my stash



Hope you all had an easier time than I did!

WOW...that's really CUTE!! Love that stamp a lot, and your primas go perfectly. I didn't try this challenge yet, not sure I will. Kinda have been preoccupied lately. You did a fantastic job on it though!!

Sherrie this is beautiful. I just love all your work and can't wait to see what you create next.

Sherrie said...

Oh Adelle, you really don't want to see the ugly....hideous is all I can say. It got too busy, and I added more and more to try to selvage it, sometimes you just gotta know when to toss!

This is beautiful I thought it was a tough color combo too but it looks like you aced it.

Theresa said...

I like your saying "You just gotta know when to toss!!!" Too funny! Great job with an out of the box color combo!
