Hi friends,

It’s great to be back again with The Spot Creative Challenge and this time it’s a colour challenge.

You can find the link to this week’s challenge page here.

Colour Combo [The Spot #119]

This week we were invited to use the colours Magenta Madness, Black, Gold and Pool Party.

Phew – That was a good challenge for me! Definitely got me out of my comfort zone.

Here is what I came up with:

There’s a fair bit going on with this card, and it morphed into different versions along the way.

In the end, I settled on it being a large square card – 13.5cm x 13.5cm – on a Pool Party base.

Embossing Folders & Dies

One of the layers was dressed up with the Scripty embossing folder, the sentiment cut from the Well Written dies, the black frame from Ornate Layers and a tiny loop of Magenta ribbon.

The main die cut shape across the middle is from the Poppy Moments dies.

Such an unusual die!
It cuts out the negative pieces and leaves the shape intact on the card stock.

I cut a matching piece in gold foil and also Magenta Madness to layer behind it.

I added an Adhesive Sheet to the cardstock before die cutting. Let me tell you… it was a game changer!

Using Adhesive Sheets when die-cutting

That stuff is MAGIC.

You just need to peel off one side of the backing paper and attach it to your cardstock before die cutting. Instant sticker! Too easy.

And the cool thing is, you can’t tell in the picture above but the gold piece also had an adhesive sheet attached so I peeled that one off and layered into a third piece – in Magenta Madness. So fun.

The result is something pretty unusual.

On certain angles you can mainly see the pink of the Magenta Madness cardstock as the dominant colour. Then you turn it on a different angle and all you can see is the shiny gold foil.

So cool!
