Color Hues #67

Hi there!
It's the first of the month so it's time for a new colour combo at Color Hues.
Here's my take on the new pairing.

When I saw the colours, I thought of wine and then I remembered this Ai image that I stamped a few years ago when visiting another Julie, just before COVID lockdown happened. We had met at an Altenew day over in Wales and realised that we didn't live that far away from each other, so arranged a couple of crafty days. Our 3rd one was in the diary when lockdown happened. I've lost touch in the intervening years which is such a shame, so if you are reading this Julie drop me a line!
Anyway, after 3 years it's time I coloured it in, so using the appropriate Copic colours I set to.
After fussy cutting the finished image, I added some Glossy Accents to the wine glasses and put it to one side to dry.
The layout is one of my go to one's, this time I used plain card to match, DP didn't fit the bill this time but added a chevron of wine coloured card for some added interest and stamped this Picket Fence sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP. The navy blue was attached to an A6 base card and the die cut top panel made from white linen effect card on top, followed by the red chevron. My group of ladies was added with foam pads and a bit of Copic colour grounds them.
So where will the colours take you, we'd love to see your ideas in the Color Hues gallery.

I'm more of a CAS kinda girl so although I have a mountain of DP I only usually use the odd bit. For this card, I went with pain coloured card with a chevron of wine card for interest as the image has a lot going on.
