Color Inspiration #111

It's Thursday......which means one more day until the weekend....and also the unveiling of a new Stamping 411 Color Inspiration challenge.

This week, I decided to start with a color I rarely use.....Handsome Hunter.

It's not that I don't like this's just one that my eye doesn't necessarily gravitates to.

Handsome Hunter is perfect for "guy" cards. No groaning when I mention "guy" cards. I know they can be challenging.....but a little creative push is good every once in a while, right?

I threw in some of my favorite colors: More Mustard and Ruby Red.

My project is one of the cards my Stamp Club members will be making tonight. It combines the gorgeous Medallion background stamp with Vintage Labels (one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets this year).

This card combines heat embossing, sponging, spritzing and paper piercing.

What techniques will you use on your Color Inspiration project?

If you choose to take the challenge, please leave a comment on this post with a link to your project. I would love to take a peek!!!!

Until next time......Happy Stamping everyone!!!
