the Color Room....

If you are in need of a great challenge site, I have a very inspiring one for you! It's called The Color Room and each week, different challenges/color palettes/sketches are offered.

This week, palette #13 is a mix of colors that are a little unexpected, but I found it really fun to look through my stash for things that would work with it! I loved digging into some old and some new items and putting them together. Even though my colors didn't turn out EXACTLY like the challenge colors, it was awesome inspiration. I only wish I had time to work on that sketch!! Isn't it amazing!?

I couldn't find any grey patterned paper in my stash -- gasp! So I decided that I could use grey cardstock and dress it up with some old white Tinkering Ink rub ons that I found. I added them to the top of my card. Then I also found an old rub on saying by Scenic Route and adhered it to the ribbon.

So...check out The Color Room when you get a chance, they are really a ton of inspiring artists there to make you want to run to your scrap room and get busy!!
