Colour Throwdown














It was from this inspirational card made by Teneale Williams that prompted this card.  I loved the whimsical look of it but I also wanted to make it my own, so I decided to use the colours from the Colour Throwdown Challenge blog. I embossed it with white and did a colour wash over the top with Midnight Muse and then filled it in a little with neat midnight muse and Mossy Meadow Green.  I coloured the pearls with my blendies and tied a bit of pool party thread for the Aqua element.

For this card I used the following products from Stampin Up

Mojo Monday















I love this new stamp that you can get totally free during sale-a-bration there are so many colour combos that work with it.  It is a 3 step stamp starting with the palest colour and building up darker to darker.  In fact you can just get away with double stamping if you so wish and it still doesn't spoil the effect.  The combo I have chosen is using a subtle colour with a pop of dark.

I used the sketch at Mojo Monday today and wanted to keep it simple and elegant.  I also used the sentiment Thinking of you because I think it suits the colour scheme and feels calm.

The Paper Players



Ok well I am so in love with the Bokeh technique I use any excuse to make a card and this one was no exception.  I love trying it with all different colours and it seems to sit well whatever the colour or combination used.  I also think this one is suitable for the Paper Players Challenge.  This one was made using just Lost Lagoon and Whisper White Craft Ink.
