There is Still Time for Christmas Card Throwdown #02

cct02There is still plenty of time to join in our current color challenge over at Christmas Card Throwdown.  We are featuring the colors Cream, Aqua and Brown right now and are so excited to see how you feature them in a Christmas Card.

Last week I showed you how you could use those colors in a clean and simple card (CAS).  This week I want to show you how you can ek-gorman-cct02use just three colors and still have a full scene.

I stamped out this scene from Stampendous with some Memento ink and the Hero Arts sentiment in the same ink.  I then colored in the image using my copics.  For the cream I used Y000, #53 and colorless blender.  The Brown shades were done in E55, E57, and E59.  The aqua was colored in BG10, BG13 and BG18.  I just used all three shades of blending to make sure that they were plenty of details in all of the scene.

ek-gorman-cct02-2I think many people believe you are limited when you are given color challenges like this.  I think three color, color challenges become the ultimate coloring challenge.

I hope that this gives you some new ideas of how to play with this current challenge.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
