Dynamic Duos #3


It's Saturday and that means it's time for another Dynamic Duos color challenge!

This week, we're playing with Basic Black and Daffodil Delight!  What a bold & fun combination!  But wait!  There is a dessert option this week too if you'd like to add it to your creation:  dry embossing!

When I saw the color combination for this week, I immediately thought of silhouette images!  I used an older set from Close To My Heart (CTMH) for this card and a sentiment from Unity.  I added a yellow gemstone to the dress to jazz it up a bit and then tied a simple bow with a piece of black & white baker's twine along the top after wrapping it around a few times.

Head on over and play along with us this week!  The winners will be announced on Friday, so you have until Thursday at noon (PDT) to enter!

Here are the basic rules:
  1. Any project is welcome...paper crafts, scrapbooking, digital, or crafts...
  2. Please ONLY use the two colours listed for your project. Neutrals are welcome.
  3. Combine us with as many other challenges as you would like, except other colour challenges.
  4. Please add our graphic to your blog with a link back to us.

The "Dynamo" design team has created some wonderful projects to inspire you, so head on over to their blogs and leave them some blog love!
