Color Hues #84

It's the first of the month once again which can only mean that the Color Hues team has a new challenge in store for you.  Cindy is our hostess and she has chosen the duo of Peach and Green.   

Don't be alarmed at the bright colors in the graphic.  Remember, this is a HUES challenge so pick your favorites and play along.

I did something a bit different for me and used designer papers as the base for my dies.  I should do this more often as I really love the unique look it can bring.  I used a 6x6 paper pack to ensure that all of the colors and patterns coordinated nicely but because it's a thinner material I backed them all with a layer of heavy weight white cardstock.  I ink blended a Distress Oxide color onto one side of the die cut panel before adhering my elements, some of which were popped up for dimension.  The sentiment was stamped in a crisp black pigment ink.  I added a sprinkle of coordinating colors of pearls as a final accent.
