Double D Color Challenge

Looking at the teal M&Ms reminds me of a a story.  It was time for the junior prom and the committee selected their colors  and teal was one of them. They decided they wanted teal M&Ms on each of the tables. The night of the prom the girls looked gorgeous with their hair, make up, and nails done perfectly and the guys were positively dashing. About an hour into the prom, I noticed that most of the crowd had blue tongues and teeth.... thank goodness they had their pictures taken early in the evening.


Color Challenge Teal AND Red
Added Neutrals are Okay


Isn't this a fun mood board?  I think you can tell which picture I chose for my inspiration. 




I did not have a cheery die or stamp so I used IO strawberries to fill my flower pot. I love this Memory Box Butterfly frame. If you leave it in the die you can use it as a stencil and give more color to the frame.   We hope you will join us  Double D Challenge Blog for this color challenge.  One random participant will win this prize. 





Interested in the Dies I used.  You can find them at the Dies R Us Store.

  3. I adore how you were inspired by this mood board. I need to take a lesson from you. I had a lot of trouble with it and only used the color as inspiration. Love the filled in butterflies and the pot of strawberries.

  11. Funny story! Good thing about the pictures already being done. I didn't know M&Ms would color your teeth. Sheesh! Anyway, I adore your strawberry pot! They're as pretty as any pot of flowers and it's nice to see something besides flowers now and then. I guess there are lots of things that could go in a flower pot. Now you're giving me ideas!
