2SF - Online Crop - Dee's Challenge

Two Scrapbook Friends hosted a Burst of Color online crop over at their forum this past week with challenges by the two friends and the design team.

Dee's challenge was a tough one - based on some fabric she has.

The "words" of the challenge were to use teal, cream and golden yellow.

For me - I don't really feel that a blue that light is teal (or my monitor is not very well calibrated and I am not seeing the right color, which is possible).

Either way, I decided to go with the descriptor "teal" rather than the fabric image itself, partly because the fabric image was added later.

This was a hard one for me. I couldn't find patterned paper with the three colors, I had almost no cardstock in the right colors, no scraps... bad news bears.

I ended up combining my version of teal blue cardstock, some golden yellow cardstock, and a textured cream cardstock from DCWV to make the layout.

I used foamie letters and a random golden tag I had as well, added a real toonie and a We R Memory Keepers gromlet from the stash which combined the fabric colors with a bit of green :)

Thanks for looking!
