Hubby's (accidental) color challenge

Conversation in our car while driving yesterday:

DD age 8: I want to get a new Frisbee. I need a teal one because pink might not always be my favorite color.

Me: Maybe you need one of every color in the world, just in case your new favorite color isn't teal.

DH: (rolls eyes)

Me: Oh, yeah, I'm the one who needs things in every single color. Especially craft stuff.

DH: And yet, you don't use every single color in one project, do you?

Me: (thinking, "Hmm, he's got a point. I wonder if I could?")

So with that, my DH's color challenge was on. He was blissfully unaware of the challenge, so I was able to focus on how in the world I could get every color into one project. The result:

This will hang on the wall in my craft room. I love the way it turned out! I think this could be my mantra.

Details: Stamps - Fresh Alphabet (PTI) - the word "color" is stamped, the remainder was printed on the computer; paper - 91 different solid colors of cardstock (SU! and PTI); accessories - 6x12 picture frame, 1/2" circle punch

This is just TOO COOL!!! You balanced them well - I can see myself getting too many reds in one area, or too many darks in another. Fabulous idea and love the result of your idea!!!

That is so neat!! I love the quote too-we love going to the museum here where they have a glass display by Dale Chihuly.

Inspired! Great way to remind yourself of all the lovely colours - note the spelling of colours ;)

I love this - fantastic idea. I'll have to try that some time for a splash of color in my stamp area. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration. Elizabeth S. in mid-Michigan

Love that! You did a great job. Is that frame from WM? I can't seem to find those any more...
