Color Challenge–Aqua, Lime and White

Found a very cool blog for color challenges - The Card Concept! I stumbled upon them after commenting on a few cards in different galleries I check out regularly. I LOVE the combo for this week…and the inspiration photo! Beautiful! Perhaps my favorite color combos ever. It also helped me get over the rainbow groove I have been in lately!


Beautiful, huh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After reading more of the blog and checking out their amazing team, I figured out my style over-all is ‘Clean and Layered’. At times I add a few more embellies…

2. Clean and Layered

  • clean lines
  • lots of layers
  • designer papers/embossing
  • embellishments/accents
  • clean and fresh looking
  • some coloured images at times
  • white space

Here is what I came up with for the challenge …

The pattern papers are from Basic Grey and Echo Park and the die cut wave, border and balloons are by My Favorite Things. The bow die is from Memory Box. I am not sure who makes the bakers twine but the sweet little hearts are from Chickaniddy Crafts. The small dots have been in my stash forever and are actually pearls which I colored with my G99 Copic Marker. LOVE that tat can be done! It has saved me a ton of $$$ just having to buy gems/pearls in clear or white.
I could not find the right shade of green for the background paper, so I made it myself by inking white cardstock with Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.

Now off to check out the other entries in the challenge!!!
