Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #36: Color Recipe - Magenta, Olive & Teal


It's time for color, beautiful oh, so lovely color at Tuesday Alchemy!
You can use one, two or all three along with neutrals.
If you use all three, you can earn an extra entry (See blog for details.)

Our sponsors are Di's Digi Downloads and Broken Box Designs.

I chose to use one color because teal is just one of my favorites. What's your favorite color? Is it any that are in the challenge this week?

{ IDEA }

Alter your chipboard shapes, especially if you need them to fit with your scheme or theme like I did with this house shape.

Emboss it! I removed a layer of the chipboard backing, so it would be thinner & would accept the embossing better.
Paint it! I distressed it with teal paint to bring more teal into the look of it and add extra detail.
Embellish it! Add embellishes to it like these silver brads & grosgrain ribbon.

Hi Corrinne
Gorgeous card using your favourite colour Teal. I love that touch with embossed chipboard.
I have got many favourite colours but since I've started paper crafting I look at colours in completely different way. There are colours I would never dream of wearing or having in my house but when it comes to paper crafting any colour goes for me.
