Topic: Color Challenge
This challenge used four unusual colors together: Burgundy, Red Violet, Dark Blue and Pine Green. When the swatches were laid out together I had a hard time envisioning something harmonious coming out of that, but we were only required to use two of the colors.
In sorting through scraps of designer paper I acrually found a floral with three of the colors in it! It was a corner treatment so I trimmed away the background with a craft knife and backed it with a solid burgundy piece.
I added a red violet border to this and let all the green come from the illustration.
By bordering the sentiment with the dark blue I actually managed to use all four colors.
The sentiment is popped up on foam tape.
