I created this card as part of the Creative Crew at SplitCoastStampers. Each month, they have four different challenges. This challenge was "DSP/Color Focus: Watercolor Wonder DSP or the colors of Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Island Indigo, Smoky Slate, & Tangerine Tango."

Love this DSP! The bright colors always put a smile on my face.

Silhouettes and Fans

I was inspired by Dynamic Duos' color challenge this week with So Saffron and Pistachio Pudding. However, the final results were not what I had originally intended. First, I started with the shoe from Fabulous You. Ummmm, that didn't look how I had intended. Next, I played with Papillion Collage. Still, not what I was envisioning. Finally, I tried Summer Silhouettes. Still, I had to play around with it a bit before I got the result I was happy with.

This just goes to show that, if you keep working an idea, eventually something will come together. Just don't give up.
