Color Hues #24

Welcome to a new colour combo at Color Hues. This time it was my turn to choose, not as easy as it would appear, but eventually I thought of tropical islands and settled on this summery combination.

As I've said before, when it comes to colour groups, the small cube ink sets from Altenew make it easy to get colours that work together. For this card I used Coral Bliss and Pink Pearl from the Tea Party set and Coral Berry from Red Cosmos. The Turquoise panel uses all four of the Sweet Dreams set.
Using a Background Block Bold Stripes from Uniko, I stamped an ombre panel then stamped the flowers from Adore you on white card and the leaves onto vellum with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP. The leaves were left without colour but I added washes of the coral colours to the flowers before fussy cutting and arranging them into a pleasing group. A small, silver die cut Congrats was layered over a black one, then added to the card. A little bit of the black layer was left showing around the silver so it stood out better against the background. A few clear sequins complete.

So where will theses colours take you, you've certainly made it difficult to choose our winners in the challenges so far. For more colour combo inspiration check out our DT and GD here.

At Color Hues, we are also joining in with Altenew's Ultimate Blog Hop, so I may just have to link up there!
