And I even used a color wheel!

The colors on this card are just ugly.  I don't care if the Stampin Up color wheel does say that real red,  creamy caramel and old olive go together, or not.  It's a good thing I only cut enough of the caramel and the olive to do two cards!  I'm switching colors, for sure!  LOL!


The coffee cup is a clip art image that I colored with my Promarkers and cut out.  Punched the scallop circle and the bar holding the sentiment.  The silver rounds on each end are some hot-fix embellishments.  I Cuttlebugged the background paper, of course.

This card should win me the "What was she thinking?" award.  LOL!

I like the red and the olive. I like the olive and the caramel. And I even like the caramel and the red. But I have to agree with you that I don't like them all together. I think that color wheel is full of shit! lol

Hmmm...what if you mounted it all on a different color instead of the red? Maybe a dark brown? Wonder if that would help balance it out?

I think you're right. A dark brown would be better. Not very spring-like but would be a great fall card with maybe a hot chocolate cup! Thanks!

You know what I like the most?? You post the good, the bad and the ugly like I do. Where is Clint Eastwood when we need him. It is all a process of trial and error. I like some of the individual elements but together ...so-so. You know I love you!!!

I had to laugh when I read your post. I have done the same thing before, not with Stampin' up but just knowing what colors should go together and putting them together was a disaster...However, I do like all of the colors you have on your card. But, I do agree with Melissa, that all of them together is a bit much...The card, in itself, is really cute.

You've been drinking, those are perfect, love it!

Linda said...

No, if I'd been drinking I'd have used Budweiser colors! LOL!

Those colors do go together!! But the red should have been an accent.

I was trying to use up the red card blanks on hand. It would be really pretty with white and blue---cuz you know I can put those colors together! LOL!

Actually, I find it to be appealing! But I agree with Okie_ladybug....Perhaps one of the colors should have been an accent. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT IN BUDWEISER COLORS.....DON'T FORGET TO CHANGE IT FROM A COFFEE CUP, TO A CAN!

Diana--that would work for me but since these will be going overseas to the troops, I'm not so sure about putting a Bud can on them! LOL!
