Dawn McVey, one of the wonderful designers for Papertrey Ink, has been issuing color challenges on her blog. When I went to the color challenge yesterday, I thougt, I must be doing something right. One of the colors was Kraft. I have seen some great cards made with Kraft, and finally decided I should try it, knowing I could at least use it for those hard-to-make guy cards. Well, it's funny because I've made 2 cards with it now, and neither one is guy-like at all (I have a great sympathy card I'll show you tomorrow). Then came the stumbling block. One of the colors was also red. I like red, I just don't have it stocked in stamping/scrapbooking supplies. No cardstock, no ribbon, no ink, no eyelets, nothing. So I went to my old paper scraps pile. I finally found a piece of red that was a shade that I decided was do-able. I have to say, that I would never have put these colors together all at once like this on my own. But I am quite pleased with the results. To see all of the other cards made with this combo, follow this link.
