July is when the weather here in the Midwest really starts to turn warm and muggy. This is the inspiration for our challenge to interpret the heat with using one or more of the following colors: Yellow, Red or Orange. Your challenge is to create a vintage or shabby chic project where the main color is yellow, orange or red. I can't wait to see how you turn up the heat in your art!
As always, the Design Team will choose their top four picks, and the winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. The next three will receive Top 3 badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
While I do use yellow, orange and red quite frequently in my projects, it's not often the main color, so this indeed was a challenge for me.
I fussy cut the dial and colored it with Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge oxides. I gave the dial a coat of Distress Crazing and after drying, smudged with Distress crayon-Chipped Sapphire. Both stamped pieces were edged with Ground Espresso ink. With foam adhesive, both pieces were layered over some scraps I had on my worktop.
As a final touch, I splashed the card with diluted Faded Jeans oxide.
I'll be sharing with these favorite challenges and a few more when I return to civilization:
