Color Hues #40

Good afternoon. A new month, so a new colour combination at Color Hues. When I saw the latest colours I knew what I wanted to make.
Here's what I came up with using the new colour combo.

I used a Lili of the Valley digi for this card, just love their cute images. He's called Patchwork Hot Air Balloon and he's perfect for a baby card or a small person's birthday.
After printing him off, I coloured him with Copic markers and fussy cut him as my printer had done something weird with the printing, leaving a transfer of ink below the basket for some reason. I used shades of tan for the bear and blues for the balloon, along with some white gel pen.
I had some NitWits dotty blue paper which I used as a background for my white panel, from which I cut a couple of clouds. I also cut a small extra cloud from some scrap, along with an oval for my stamped Mama Elephant sentiment.
The base card was made from white linen effect card over which I added some of the dotty DP, leaving a gap at the top and bottom of the base card as my scrap of DP was just a tad too small. My top panel was added on pads, with the two die cut clouds added. The fussy cut bear was added and a couple of thin strips of card coloured with matching Copic marker were added above and below the white panel. Finally my sentiment was slipped under the basket and on a foam pad over the bottom of the card.
So where will our colours take you this time? If you need a little extra inspiration why not check out the rest of the team and our GD Shawna here.

  5. A great design Julie, the cut out clouds are a lovely touch behind that adorable bear. We have had some long awaited rain. Our fields are looking dreadful despite Martin having put fertiliser on earlier (and when it was MUCH cheaper too) if the old oak before ash is right we are in for a dry summer!!
