Hello, Kre8tors! I’m Melissa from Melissa’s Kre8tions. Welcome back to the 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating Autumn with a color challenge! I’ve provided our hop participants with the following color palette to create their projects. I think they’ve all done an amazing job, what do you think? If you’d like to create your own project using this color scheme, upload a picture of your finished project to social media and tag me on your post so that I can see your wonderful creation and share it with my followers! See the Social Media buttons at the bottom of this post to find out where you can share!
So, our color challenge theme is Autumn, and the photo above is the inspiration for our color palette. I challenged our lovely demonstrators with using at least 3 out of 5 of the colors above, and in addition to those, they are allowed to use black, white, and vanilla. Here’s what I came up with!
As I was perusing Pinterest, I came across a photo that had a beautiful dark background with colorful leaves all over. I clicked on the photo to find out more, however there was no link to follow. The only information that was on the pin said Patsy Collins and Josephs Coat Technique. She did a great job using the photo to show step by step how this technique works. I wanted to recreate her technique using the beautiful Rooted in Nature stamp set. I am in LOVE with how it turned out!
The colors I chose to use are Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, and Granny Apple Green. We were allowed to use Black and Whisper White as well. I think these colors are so beautiful together! They remind me of Autumn and rainbow sherbet ice cream! Yum!
Check out my video tutorial to learn how to make this fun and colorful background using the Joseph’s Coat Technique!

that’s a very pretty card! I nearly used the same technique but the only leave stamp I have is from Lovely as a Tree and it’s too small. It didn’t work out as I planned so made something else. I love how your colours are popping out. Beautiful contrast.
Thank you so much, Eva! I was worried I didn’t have the right set for this, but when I looked closely at the leaves in the Rooted in Nature bundle, I thought it would work pretty well. I’m glad I tried it, because it turned out beautifully! 😊
Thank you, Kathy! It was so great to learn a new technique and use a beautiful stamp set! 😊
