Cathy’s Colour Throwdown # 34

March 19, 2009 at 9:54 am 5 comments

I found this colour challenge a little, well, challenging! I love the blue and green – it is one of my favourite combos, but somehow the addition of the pale pink threw me a little! Anyway, here it is!

The card base is SU Not Quite Navy and I used a My Mind’s Eye patterned paper to stand in for the Kiwi Kiss portion of the challenge. To make the scalloped borders, I used a square scalloped nestie and cut it in half. The stamped stitches are from an Autumn Leaves stamp set and I liked how they echoed the scallop border. The focal image is from Hero Arts, stamped in black and then highlighted with lots of crystal glitter – I know, it’s hard to see the sparkle in the photo and it’s my favourite part of the card! To finish it off, I added a pink ribbon and a text printed flower from Prima with a little clear Bella bauble in the centre.

Overall, it’s a little different for me, but it’s growing on me!
