Tuesday means another awesome color challenge by our colourQ fearless leader, Arielle. Week after week she manages to find the most inspiring photos with interesting color combos that always challenge me to think of colors in a whole new way. Well, this week the colors made me want to attempt a sketch challenge that was nothing like I'd ever tried before.
Here are the colors:
And here's the sketch from retro sketches:
When I first saw this, I thought "no way." My brain couldn't comprehend what I was seeing and I wanted to just close my browser window and pretend I never saw it. But as it turns out I couldn't pretend it didn't exist. In fact, I studied it very carefully and decided that I would try and make a card using many of the elements of the sketch. I'm a left-brain kind of person and tend to interpret things quite literally so that's why many of the elements of my card echo the sketch quite a bit. I did change it up some and in the end I'm quite pleased with it. (Secretly, I keep staring at it because I can't quite believe that I made this - it's so far outside what I usually do).
So now it's your turn. Head on over to colourQ and check out what the design team has put together to amaze and delight you. I hope you can join us this week!
