Having fun with colour for CTC#157 Case a Colour combination

Hello and Welcome to another Sunday Night Blog Hop with CASEing the Catty blog hop challenge!!

Every Sunday night we inspire and challenge you to look at the amazing Stampin' Up! Catalogue with new eyes, as we CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit or Copy And Share Everything) the fabulous projects so that you see the potential for being creative using the great catalogue ideas !!!

This week we are challenged to CASE a colour combination from either of our current Catalogues.  

My case this week is inspired by this sweet card on page 37 of the Annual Catalogue.  

I've swapped the stamped image for the gorgeous image and greeting from Rose Wonder, coloured with my Watercolour pencils using Pacific Point, and Stampin' Blends for the leaves using Crumb Cake.  I'm not mightily comfortable with bright colours, but I really love this combination of Pacific Point and Crumb Cake - the formula is probably quite easy really - my favourites are the Neutrals colour family so the mix of bright and neutral satisfies my conservative soul!!!

The original card features stamping onto a Memories and More card which has a pattern all over it, so I've stamped the smaller floral image from Rose Wonder using Soft Sky all over the background of my feature piece.  The layout of my card is almost identical to the original - the only change I've made is to add some burlap ribbon behind the greeting and a little enamel dot on the top of my linen bow.  


I hope you are inspired to have a go at CASEing a colour combination from either of our current catalogues - this is a fun and easy challenge as there are sooooo many possibilities in the CATTY!!!
