Curtain Call Colour Challenge: {Act 57}

Another toughy for me. I am not ashamed to admit I have a tough time with cards when the colours are not my favourites. The photo looks so inviting and and Stacey makes it look so easy. I had to go out of my comfort zone on this one and go a little abstract. Not sure about the end result. You will have to let me know what you think.

I still love this background stamp Tres Chic and love it as a backdrop in Chocolate Chip on Cajun Craze. One of my new favourite background stamps is Teahouse which I stamped on Tempting Turquoise and punched out with the New Designer Label Punch.

The Presto Patterns Specialty Paper is alot of fun. It's kind of like a choose your own adventure kind of thing. Sponge it with whatever colour ink you want. I chose Basic Grey. I topped off the focal point with a little Petal Card stamped with Tres Chic again and finished it with an Antique Brad.

The Curtain Call Crew also has samples to show you today, too, so make sure you stop by to see:
