Ahh...my friends. I'm finally back after NOT finishing my JUGS card - yet...but I do have my Color Throwdown card to share :] Danielle selected a FABULOUS palette that I MUST use for one of my next packs of paper!! I can't tell you how many times I've reached for Aqua and Pink, or Aqua and Melon...I NEED some paper that I can grab and go (err...print and go). Check out her fresh palette!
Mmmm...mmmm...LOVE IT. So, you know by now, that I don't have an aqua/rose red pack, BUT, I do know how to recolor digi paper, so I was truly all set. Plus I wanted to keep the top bg white, which made it easier to design the rest of my card :] I chose to use my School Plaid paper and recolored it to a lovely melon because it matched the flower I colored better than rose red. Oh, and if you're new to my blog you may not realize I typically DON'T color...especially with Copics since I have such a limited collection. I do MUCH nicer work with watercoloring...but I'm trying to get better with Copics so that's what I went with. That being said, I totally realize that my coloring is far from the best! BUT, it matches the very pretty melon ribbon and hemp twine I picked up this weekend!! Score!
I double looped my melon ribbon and twine under the aqua button...and layered it on top of some super cute aqua ribbon I picked up when Amy Sheffer and I went shopping at the Hobby Lobby! I'll type a separate post about that OH-SO-FUN-DAY with Amy, later :] She is awesome...
My bloom and sentiment came from Catherine Doucette's Bee-Loved and Bee-Loved Sentiments sets (consecutively). I adhered a few yellow buttons from my stash to follow the Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO190) and also to subliminally represent the sun shining on my flower :]
