Color Hues #20 - AQUA & BLACK

Hello friends.  Today I'm playing along with the Color Hues Challenge where they are looking for cards with the colors AQUA and BLACK.


Such a pretty color combination!!  I love AQUA, and BLACK just totally pops off of it!  I could have made a 100 cards with this color combination, but unfortunately I only had time for one!!  Take a look:


I used The Greetery's Tartan Builder Diagonal stencils to make my plaid background with Gina K's Sea Glass and Ocean Mist inks.  I only used 3 of the 5 stencils that come with the set, but it really didn't need anything else as I wanted the background to stay soft looking.  I cut the panel down a little and matted it with a black mat before adhering both to a top folding white card base.


I used a couple Memory Box dies for my sentiment (Just a Note Posh Script) and the butterfly (Vivienne Butterfly) with black cardstock, and then finished simply with some glitter on the butterfly wings, a few clear gems, and a piece of black & white baker's twine.  Easy and simple but I love the way it turned out!

Make sure you check out all the beautiful inspiration from the DT right HERE and then play along with this lovely color combination!!  :0)

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  8. This is so well laid out and balanced Marcia! Love that greeting die and the way you did the twine is just perfect. I know if you had time to make 100 cards in this color combo they would be as perfect as this one. I am so happy to see you in the gallery once again at Color Hues. Take care!
