Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: XYZ

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: xyz...

pff stumped...
this wasn't my first card, the other is in the bin.
I looked up abc of colors on Wikipedia, there's Xanadu (grey), Zomp ( a tealish blue), Yale and Yankee blue, Yellow ofcourse, Zaffre, and more.
At first I used Spectrum Noir markers to color the cardstock and then bleached out areas through a stencil..These are so not my colors, so I really didn't like it.

Thought about doing and x and y axe diagram thing, but then I came up with this.
I used yellow and Zomp
Lawn Fawn's Finley's abc to die cut the xo xo (you know for the x in the challenge)
The sentiment is stamped with Simon Says stamp black ink.

I could have toned down the yellow and blue and gone for pastels, and although not my colors, I like it as these are opposite on the color wheel and they make each other pop, if I had toned it down, it wouldn't be as striking.

  1. Visiting from seeing your card at Simon Says Stamp Mon Ch: X, Y, Z. Like the XO cutouts & yellow w/ Zomp (not heard of the Zomp color) blue. Blue is my fav. I went with Zoo theme. Hope you'll stop by and visit my blog.

  2. hi, thanks apparently zomp is big in Australia,, i'd never heard of it either ;-) but i like it,'s so funny

  3. Wow! You had all sorts of tie-in's to our XYZ theme! I do like the color combo and how boldly the XO sentiments stand out. This card has such a happy vibe and would be perfect to give to so many different people. And I agree with your decision to go bright! Excellent job here and I'm so glad you shared your creation with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
