Why these colors?? Think warm breezes, sunshine, the tropics...that's what I'm thinking this time of year when Winter is still hanging on here in Michigan! Seriously though, go wherever the colors take you, and we'll be thrilled to see you in the gallery! Here's what the colors led me to...
That little crab is me in my pale white skin, but he's hoping a few days poolside will fix that! I started by stenciling my background using PTI's POOL WATER stencils and Blue Raspberry and Turquoise Sea inks from Gina K. I stamped my umbrella on white card and then again on Turquoise Sea and Pacific Point cardstocks (Gina K & SU!), and then fussy cut and paper pieced to the white stamped umbrella. The umbrella and the crab are both from MFT's Just Beclaws stamp and die set.
The Adirondack chair (Gina Marie Designs) was also die cut from Turquoise Sea card and then attached to my Crimped Circle die cut (The Greetery) along with the pasty white crab, the umbrella, and my sentiment that I think is just perfect for this card! (Catherine Pooler - Vitamin Sea Stamps) I finished with a few matching enamel dots and google eyes that have blue centers (leftover from a Paper Pumpkin (SU!) kit).
We can't wait to see YOU in the gallery using these two colors!! Make sure you check out all the FABULOUS inspiration from the rest of our DT...you can check it all out right HERE. This challenge is open till the 28th @ 9:00AM.
