SOG Challenge: Complementary Colours

Hi all,

It's been another 2 weeks, and we are giving you another challenge over on the SOG blog!  We always have amazing entries for these challenges, and we especially love when we see you using images from the ODD store

This week, we were challenged to make a card with complementary colours!  That means you have to choose 2 colours that are opposite eachother on the colour wheel, and that should be your main colour scheme.  Here is the wheel for your browsing pleasure:

The colours I chose are the yellow-orange and the blue-violet.  And I have coloured up one of the images from the new release - Cheer Kaylee!  She is super cute, and I love her!

Here is mine:

My card base is Kraft CS, and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park collection called Little Boy - they are papers for boys, but the colours suited me, so I used 'em!  I cut them into a bunch of strips, and I placed them randomly onto the base.  I added a fun sentiment with some fabric Thickers to the side.

I printed Kaylee onto Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured her in with Copics.  I cut her out with Label 18 Nesties, and added some Bashful Blue sponging inside the stencil. 

Copics used:
*Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R02
*Hair: E31, E35, E37, E49
*Hair band: B32, B34, B37
*Pom poms and shoes: YR21, YR65, YR68
*Outfit: BV00, BV04, BV08, YR62, YR65, YR68
*Eyes: B00, B02, B05

Make sure you head over to the SOG blog to submit your creation using complementary colours - you have 2 weeks!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
