New month means new challenge at Spectrum Noir and a chance to win some fab prices. I love the challenges because they are such great inspiration. This month it's a color theme: Grey and/or orange. I have a lot of inspiration lately and made not one project but three. I started with this orange one using Aqua Tints to make a background, I used the orange from the Bright and Beautiful set and some of the yellow to make a gradient. Then I diecut the whole thing using this fantastic die by Winnie & Walter, and made sure not to loose any pieces. I puzzled it all together in a white frame and colored the flowers and the leaves with the Marigold Spectrum Aqua to match.
Then I made this one and it took me hours. I actually hand painted all of the little pieces by painting one edge of the piece with the Charcoal Spectrum Aqua marker and then adding water with a spritzer to make it blend a bit. Then I puzzled it into a frame covered in Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing powder by WOW. Since I had no way of keeping track of what piece went where it took me a good while to put it all together but it turned out really cool!
I painted these butterflies and background using some Aqua Tints in Black and orange and then Covered the butterflies with gold and silver Aqua Tints to make them shimmer a lot. The butterflies are by Lawn Fawn.
So there you go, one grey, one orange and one grey and orange project. I hope you get as inspired as me and have a go at the challenge. You can find all the details on how to take part here, just remember to use some Spectrum Noir products on your project. Good luck!
