The Paper Players Color Challenge 158

Color challenges are always fun!  The latest from The Paper Players is a bit challenging for sure!

I also sort of followed the Mojo Monday sketch.  I spent a little time and thought about how I approach a challenge, and thought it may be helpful to share!
  • For color challenges, I usually pick one of the colors as the dominant color, then a second and the third color I use as more of an accent. That helps a lot when colors are so close as they are here (Cantaloupe Crisp and Strawberry Slush).
  • Using colors that are so close together, as I did on the flag strip, add a type of monochromatic look.  Not so much that it takes away from the main image.  I could have even stamped off the strawberry to make it less obvious.
  • Since I chose the Cantaloupe Crisp DSP from Birthday Basics as the background, I decided to use the Strawberry Slush and Pear Pizazz as main colors.  
  • To really focus on the main image, I matted it with Pear Pizazz.
  • Look at stamps differently!  For the main image, I stamped it multiple times and cut out different pieces to layer together.
  • Creating without dimensionals and pearls would be sad...  ; )  ...I used a lot here!
How do you approach a color challenge? I would love to hear!

 Thats all for this morning!  Hope you have a great day !  I know I am looking forward to a wonderful weekend of beautiful weather!
