Time for the Papertrey June Blog Hop!
I missed the last two blog hops. I'm so glad I'm able to participate this month.
This month's blog challenge is about color combinations. You can read all about the details of this month's blog challenge on Nichole Heady's blog here.
Now, when I first read the challenge, I thought it was just about using different colors. Actually, it's about using your favorite color combination. Well, that's not what I was thinking when I made my card. Here are the colors that I used:
Being that the temperatures here in Sacramento are reaching the 90's, I thought it appropriate to create a summer-themed card. Here's the card I made.
Since the layout is so simple, I added a lot of texture and details to make the card special. I used a different impression plate for each of the strips. Here's a close-up.
I added glossy accents to the two drinks to give it some dimension. For the blue flip-flop, I stamped the flower image and covered it with some flock.
For the orange margarita, I used glossy accents and sprinkled glitter on it to resemble a salted rim. Notice the tiny pearls on the red flip-flops?
The images are all from the A Day at the Beach stamp set. I was inspired to use this set because of Katie's Paper Dolls Challenge to use one of our older PTI sets. It was so much fun to assemble the different images.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of this month's Papertrey Blog Hop!
