Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!


This month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop is all about color combinations! 

My combo is:  Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse, Summer Sunrise, and White!


I went against my usual folksy inclinations (no kraft or Vintage Cream??!) and was inspired by SUMMER and the newest PTI colors!  Used the circle pattern from Background Basics: Retro in Fresh Snow ink on Hawaiian Shores cardstock.  I colored the Friends 'til the End daisy with Martha Stewart watercolor markers and a waterbrush using Summer Sunrise shades.  Tied the bottom with Simply Chartreuse twill tape.  The sentiment peeking from the side is from the Round and Round Anniversary set. 

Can't wait to add all of these inspiring color combos to my list...thanks for visiting!

Love your colour combo! Cutting out Friends 'til the end is a real labour of love - but it was so worth it for this card - the image looks stunning on the Hawaiian shores background!

This is so purtee! Love the color combo and the coloring of the flower. You also did a flawless job lining up the background stamp. I thought it was patterned paper! Great job!

LOVE your color combo, and you did a fantastic job coloring the flower. I admire your patience with cutting it out too. I really hope PTI comes out with a die for that flower, cuz it's a big pain to cut out by hand! Anyway, fantastic card!

Awesome summery colors! I love the background. I tend to forget my background stamps, but the white dots on the hawaiian shores really makes a perfect background for your pretty flower to pop! Great card!!
