Color Hues #63


It's the first of May (already!) and the Color Hues team has a new color duo up on the blog and it's perfect for spring/summer.

Isn't this a fun pick from Hannelie?

I had some new goodies from Simply Graphic that dictated the theme of my card.  I die cut the sunbathing beauty from white cardstock and colored her in with Copics.  The raft was die cut from designer paper.  I used a background die to create the waves which I then paper pieced with a cyan shade closer to green than blue.  I stamped the sentiment with a crisp black pigment ink and added some white polka dots to her hat.  This card could work for several occasions but I do think I'll use it as a birthday card.

I invite you to join us over at the Color Hues blog where you'll see lots of Hot Pink and Cyan inspiration from our DT.  I do hope to see your card in our gallery!

As always, thanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me!
