Color Challenge

CC148 Challenge: Use the color combination Wild Wasabi, Blue Bayou, and Barely Banana

I found this challenge to be......well, quite challenging. You see, I have all the right color papers, but the only ink color I have is Barely Banana (and it is so light it doesn't show up very well). Needless to say, I had a hard time wrapping my brain around a good stamp set to use that I could use Barely Banana or Basic Black ink with.

My first card was just like the picture posted, except it was all done in Barely Banana and Basic Black. It just wasn't cutting it. So I pulled out my Brocade Blue ink, which I found to be a close enough match to Blue Bayou, and I re-did it.

This is my final result. I used Heat and Stick along with Dazzling Diamonds to add some bling to the butterfly. Now that I have found another color option, Brocade Blue, I may have to do another layout. I felt limited before I knew I had another color option, and the end result is .....just a simple basic layout.
