Tyra's May Color Combo Challenge

May is here! Ready to find out who our March flower power challenge winner is? The winner is... Lilian YF! Congratulations, you won a $25 gift code to! E-mail us at seiblog{at}shopsei{dot}com. This is Lilian's lovely creation...

Would you like a chance to win too? Here's Tyra to announce the next challenge...

As a fellow crafter you know as well as I do that color is everything! Color is one of the first decisions one makes when approaching design. Not only color, but decisions around color combinations and proportion one of color to another. Got it? Not quite? Well there are plenty of online resources available at your fingertips. I have discovered, a community dedicated to everything about color. For today’s challenge I used the Azalea collection and decided to look up the word "Azalea" on the ColourLovers website. What I found are four different color combos similar to SEI's Azalea Collection. These color combos will also serve as the inspiration image for this month's challenge:

I love the color combo suggestions and the proportion of color suggested (e.g. size of each color swatch) within each combo. Here is my take using the beautiful papers from the Azalea collection:

I used panels from the Azalea perforated sheet sheet to create quick panels for each card. I loved how everything turned out.

The "Never Give Up" panel is perfect for making a card to encourage someone. Visit JustTyra to see a few more projects I created with the Azalea collection.

What will you create?

Challenge Rules:
Use the inspiration image to create a new layout, card, or mixed media design.
