I have said several times how I hate it when there's a "color" challenge that has nothing but neutrals in it--in my opinion, anything billing itself as a color challenge should have multiple colors, not all neutrals or one color and a bunch of neutrals (my mother says I'm very opinionated). Imagine my annoyance when I actually kinda liked what I made for yesterday's oh-so-blah non-color challenge at Splitcoast:
Though I wonder if this is TOO blah for a birthday card? Is it depressing for a birthday, between the clocks ("hey, you're old!") and the lack of color? I was thinking of sending it to a guy friend of mine, thinking it works as a masculine card. Maybe I should try it again with some actual colors this time.
The layout is based on the latest awesome sketch at Retro Sketches:
Seriously love that sketch, oh so many possibilities. Between the lack of colors on today's card and the blah weather, I kinda want to do this sketch again and go gonzo with colors :) I think I need to make myself a card that will require me to wear sunglasses to look at it.
Thanks for stopping by!
