Curtain Call cop-out!

Hiya!

Ok so I will admit straight away - this week's colours scared me a little!! See what I mean...

The Bold Brights family is one that I've never felt overly comfortable with so these colours pushed me waaay out of my comfort zone! I copped out a little and added a TONNE of white - kinda case-ing Silke's lovely cards (although not being anywhere near as successful!!). Here's what I ended up with:

I combined the colours with this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge - lots of layers to play with! The main image is from Fast & Fun Notes, which I embossed with black embossing powder on watercolour paper then coloured with reinkers and an aquapainter - lots of fun! The butterfly panels were stamped with All a Flutter (from the new mini catty!) with Yoyo Yellow ink. The white background was scored on the diagonal to create a diamond pattern.
Check out what the other Curtain Call girls have created with this week's colours:
and our wonderful leader, Stacey Schafer!
Thanks for stopping by today!

I think most of us had the same reaction when we saw these colours LOL! I know I did :D Love how you used this week's Mojo sketch with the colours. The scoring on the BG panel is great as are all the details on the card. Well done!

I wouldn't call using white a cop-out...it just makes good designing sense! You were able to balance these challenging colors beautifully! I love the colored image and the yellow butterflies!
