I've been playing along with the latest Runway Inspired Challenge. After raving about them last week, I logged on to see the latest inspirational photo and my heart sunk. This week didn't have a particularly appealing design to pick apart and use.
I know it's all down to taste but this photo...
...really isn't my cup of tea at all. I noticed only after I made my card, that most everyone else who's joined in so far, took the blue and swirls from the design but paired them with white for a far classier effect.
I, instead, tried to push myself to use the peach and pink as the main colours with the accent of blue with swirls. Guess I tried to use the photo too literally.
and this is what I came up with...
and I have to say I'm not wowed by it.
The colours work well together. In fashion yes. I'm just not sure they look great on a card. Would anyone be delighted to receive this? Maybe it's just me.
But I did enjoy the challenge, even if the results were yick. I like stepping out of my comfort zone, true. It helps keep me motivated and educated but sometimes there's a reason I sometimes stay there.
Anyway, I'm still going to share my attempt with you and take the lesson with me, not to always use all the elements from the proffered challenge photo.
