MOJO 230 and Color Throwdown 181

I took a mini break from stamping the last couple of days.  But I kept seeing the latest MOJO sketch in my mind and it was calling to me to end my break and get busy in my stamp room.  So last night I sat down to tackle this sketch along with the Color Throwdown challenge.




This color challenge actually reminded me how much I like Certainly Celery.  It used to be one of my go-to colors, but for some reason I've neglected it lately.  Once I realized this, it prompted me to try and figure out why I'd been ignoring a favorite color.  I think it's because I like the color challenges I find so plentiful in blogland.  Back before I tried a color challenge, if I needed green I turned to Certainly Celery. If I needed brown I turned to Chocolate Chip.  You get the idea.  Then I discovered the diversity to be had in color challenges.  Participating got me to try other colors that I might not have used otherwise, sometimes at the expense of colors I used too much.

So, the good news is that I challenge myself creatively with a diverse color palette.  The bad news is ... Well, what do you know?  There is no bad news!

Pin It Now!
