Just for Fun Friday

It's Friday and time for another color challenge for Just for Fun! Today's color challenge is

Red and Yellow - hmmm... Colors that I don't work with much. My Christmas cards are not even red and I don't own any red card stock. But challenges are to help us grow right? So....
This card was made with all white card stock and I brayered on the red and yellow. But I was feeling a little grungy when I made this shockingly bright card (well for me anyway) - so I also made this...
And the inside:

Look I used red and don'tcha just love the Dream Voyage stamps and the postcard background.

Now take some time to see what the other designer made - I am sure they were much more successful with the Red, Yellow and Black color combination than I was - really!

I agree with Emily - both are great, but the 2nd is my favorite. Wonderful creations, as always!

Giggle....I'm very impressed with the brayering...I can sponge, can't brayer to save my life! BUT!! I agree with the other gals...first card is great, but LOVE the grunge!

What??? No red cardstock for CHRISTMAS??? ROFL. I think you did marvy with the challenge for having no red card! Great job, and yes, those stamps are awesome!

Sherry Cheever said...

Well I think you did a wonderful job for struggling with the colors .. . I like the second one better too, but then again I'm not a bright color girl either!!!!!!

I had to LOL when I read your comment about the first card. I have a hard time with bright colors as well. I was shocked when I saw the color challenge.
LOVE the second card. Looks amazing!
Have a Happy Easter!
Hugs and smiles
