Color Me... Striking! - CMCC #11

Hey friends, it's Wednesday and that means it's time for another awesome challenge at Colour Me...!  Everyone really rocked it in last week's monochromatic challenge, so many wonderful entries!  Let's do it again, shall we?  It's the second week of the month and that means we have a pair of colors to work with:  Midnight Muse and Tangerine Tango.

I decided it was time to try out the inlaid die cut technique I've been seeing everywhere.  It's really fun and I love the looks you can create.

I'm loving this week's funky inspiration photo:

Check out the great inspiration from the other team members and link up your creations, too!  I can't wait to see your goodies in the gallery!

  1. love your card, katie!! i really like how you chose to put the emphasis on the midnight muse color... it makes for a really striking card!

  2. Striking is the right word for this, Katie! It's amazing! Those are not two colors I would have put together, but you rocked them and inspire me!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Another masterpiece from u :) love that cluster of leaves :)

  4. Love the script sentiment, little leaves and twine oh heck love it all :)

  5. Love the look of that inlaid die cut and that sweet bunch of leaves. Lovely card Katie!

  6. The inlaid die cut technique is awesome - and looks awesome on your card with the white against blue! Definitely striking :) Your little bouquet of leaves is such a sweet accent!

  7. You did these colors proud. More and more I'm liking the inlay die cut technique... and I like you've got a name for it, although "putting the pieces back in" is an easy to understand name too. It doesn't sound as fancy though.

  8. Another great card Katie! Love how you added the vellum leaves too.
