Colour challenges are my favourites as they give me somewhere to focus.
This time it's Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine tango & Real Red. I started by sponging the colours through a stencil onto a masked card, then added the stamping.
Here's my card ... and it would have been really good if I could have managed to get the photo up the right way. Generally my phone camera is well-behaved .... but not this time. I tried 4 orientations but couldn't get a portrait view no matter what I tried. Any suggestions gratefully received - apart from the one that says I'm hopeless with technology! This is going to look really stupid in my challenge entry.

I've been busy lately & haven't worked on any challenges; it's nice to try again.
I've had a go at this color throwdown one. Check it out here. I found it difficult to get a balance with these colours. I wanted to use a variation in colour for the embossed background, so combined pistachio Pudding & Coastal Cabana - just LOVE the I Love Lace background stamp from SU. When embossed it FEELS like lace as well as looks like it.
Here's my effort.
