Diva Coffee Break Designs Team DCBD 190 Color Challenge!

Color Challenge Alert!!  I hope you’ll play along with the Diva Coffee Break Designs Team this week for the DCBD190 Color Challenge!  This one was a tough one for me.. 4 colors plus a neutral, and it took me several days to come up with a card I wanted to share as part of this very talented team of designers!!

This week’s challenge (DCBD190) focuses on four colors from the Brights Collection:

  • Daffodil Delight
  • Tangerine Tango
  • Rich Razzleberry
  • Old Olive

Here is the card I created for the challenge… hope you like it!


Let me tell you.. it was REALLY hard to photograph this card.. even though I pulled all the tricks.. lighting, true black and white background.. yikes!  Anyway, this card was created on the tail end of my recent introductory brayer class… still in brayer mode LOL!!  Kind of reminds me of a scene along the Blue Ridge Parkway… where the side of the road is a steep cliff dropping into a sea of trees and forest… morning sunshine peeking through and creating a haze over the distant tree tops.

Would love to have you play along with us this week too!  Please visit the DCBD Blog, and use the linky tool to add your Color Challenge Creation at the >> Diva Coffee Break Designs Team <<  I’ll be checking the blog for your special creations!

I absolutely LOVE this card! The colors look great together, and the use of the Medallion stamp in the background is perfect.

Two thumbs up!

Beautiful card, I love the subtle use of the tangerine tango and rich razzle. The daffodil and old olive are nice and rich looking,

Beautiful card, Sharon!
Great job with the brayer. You've mastered the technique, I think!
