Midnight Musing at Dynamic Duos #81

Good Saturday morning, crafty friends!
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and survived the craziness of Black Friday.

Time for a new challenge from the Dynamic Duos:
As it's the fifth Saturday this month, it is "Your Choice" week, where we specify one colour and you get to choose the other. Midnight Muse is a nice deep blue (altho not so dark as navy).

I chose to go with a complementary color, Goldrush, a soft orangey-yellow.
Here's the card:
This beautiful stamp is a rubber-cling one I won last year. I am a strictly clear acrylic stamper, myself. I find using non-see-through images very challenging. This one is nice and square, however, and fits perfectly into a Stitched Mats-Rectangle from Lil'Inker Designs. The sentiment is also from Lil'Inker.
The snowflake die is a Die-namic from My Favorite Things. And that sequin in the centre? Started out a different colour, but was tinted with an alcohol marker.

So, off you go to the Dynamic Duos blog, to see what colours the other DT gals have picked.

Here's how to participate in the Dynamic Duos challenges.

  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.
  5. Any offensive or inappropriate posts will be deleted.

Hope to see you link up this week!
