Color Challenge Tuesday

Today is a double color challenge for me since both challenges where I'm on the design team have color challenges this week.
I really had fun with both these cards although one proved to be more challenging than the other.

CAS Colours & Sketches posted these colors:
And Splitcoast Stampers has these colors:
I created the card for CC&S first and I'm happy I did.  It took me quite some time as the colors were difficult for me and I went through several versions (using several stamp sets) before I arrived at this card.  I felt everything I came up with was dreary.  This happened once before with a card using gray.  I think I need to practice more with my grays!  In any case, I was trying something else when FedEx rang my doorbell with my new MFT order.  And that was it.  When I opened up the bunny stamp set I knew I would use it.
I admire the coloring I see on kraft card stock but have never tried it.  Here I used Prismacolors to color on Sahara Sand card stock.  I'm pleased with my first attempt.  To add a bit more color I stacked some die cut Pacific Point card stock under the white panel.  It gives just a hint of the blue.
I'm the hostess for this week's SCS color challenge and chose the colors and theme (wings).  I fully intended to use parrots on the cards but ended up with the butterfly.  It was one of those days where I looked at the stamps I was going to use and didn't "feel it".  LOL!  So I went with Plan B.
For this I used Stampin' Up! water color pencils in the challenge colors along with an Aquapainter.  I've seen similar cards on Pinterest using flowers but I needed the "wings" so - a butterfly front and center.  To make it sparkle I added several coats of Wink of Stella.
