"... The trick is to grow up without getting old", Frank Lloyd Wright says. The trick to using bright More Mustard, Melon Mambo and my precious Baja in a color challenge is watering down. Not literally, but I did dilute these colors to make them more palatable to me.
- Baja breeae is stamped off one time for one of the flowers on the background here and then a second time for the flower on the right. The edge is colored with More Mustard pastel.
- I stamped a plain ivory flower with Melon Mambo using the Medallion stamp which gives is a muted look.
- Finally, I found a use for the mostly white side of one of those color pads - this time the one with More Mustard.
- Finally, the ribbon really does match Melon Mambo but being partially sheer fits in with the muted theme.
I also used this week's sketch challenge for the arrangement. Check out the other cards at www.splitcoastampers.com/gallery
