Sunshine Thoughts Card ~ Color Dare #456

 This challenge also includes a bit of a tutorial on Color Theory. Our Color My Heart Design Team is challenging you to use Complimentary Colors to create any paper craft you like.  You must use TWO colors that are across from each other on the color wheel (see below). We're giving you free colors of Black, White, Neutrals plus Gold. The Complimentary Colors I used for my card are purple and yellow. I also added a touch of black and gold. 

I'm also sharing this card with Heart 2 Heart for their Full circle Challenge.

I just got this workshop kit and couldn't wait to use it. I felt the clean and simple design of the images would be a nice choice for this challenge. I think it turned out great!

Normally I don't care much for the color yellow but when paired with purple it's really eye catching! The "texture" on the cardstock was created with a small stamp from the set repeatedly stamped over the piece. I sponged some yellow ink on the light side of our cardstock to create a setting sun kind of feel. Sparkle was created with a yellow shimmer brush and shimmer trim.

  1. Really nice card Michelle. The ‘texture’ on the card works so well and I really like that mountain die. X

  2. Love that you used the mountains with the purple and yellow!! Wonderful card!

  3. Great colour choices for a mountain as the sun is rising (or setting)... great use of the workshop thin cuts too.

  4. The purple/yellow combo is quite striking. Beautiful card

  5. Love how you created a bright and cheery scene in your circle die... beautiful card. I'm with you purple and yellow is a great combination.
