JUGS #331 COLOR WEEK!!

Hi!  It's my turn to host the challenge at Just Us Girls and it's COLOR WEEK! I'm all about COLOR and color combinations! I look at Pinterest for hours just for the colors!! In fact, that's where I saw these colors combined and then couldn't think about using any others! Aqua is my favorite color and when I saw it combined with turquoise, teal and NAVY, OMGoodness! I was hooked! Here's Nancy's wonderful graphic and below that is a link to a couple Pinterest photos that interested me (made me drool).

And here's my card: (Please note: I only used other colors when dictated by the real color of the object. i.e grass is green)
This new Whipper Snapper stamp is called Waggin' Buddies and is just adorable!! Dave bought it for me (and a cartful of others) for Valentine's Day! I had to color it right up! I used reinkers on watercolor paper. my papers are cut with My Favorite Things dies and are from Papertrey Ink and Pebbles (houndstooth).  The card base is Navy as are the gems (though they look black). Sentiments are from the label set by My Favorite Things.
Please don't let me down! come join in the challenge by Thursday, Feb. 25 at 9:00 pm!! Check out our BLOG for more inspiration!


I think you can see that I added some stickles to the wagon wheels and handle (and puppy's collar) in this photo. I used Sahara Sand around my image to set it off a bit. Also left it in the die and used a stencil brush with Coastal Cabana to add some blue to the sky. If you're stuck for colors think Pool Party (or PTI Aqua Mist), Coastal Cabana, Teal (Taken with Teal/Ocean Tides PTI/ Green-Eyed Monster MFT and any Navy Blue. The colors look great together!! REALLY!
Thanks for stopping by!
