Welcome to the Color Combos Galore 200th "Anniversary" Blog Hop! We hope by visiting the CCG Design Team members' blogs, you will be able to pick up some fun tips and techniques. Many of the team members will be offering prizes, so you will want to visit all of the blogs to increase your chances of winning some fun scrappy stuff. We are also offering a chance at a Guest Designer spot for the month of August if you visit all of the blogs in our Blog Hop and participate in Challenge 200 by uploading your project to the CCG Gallery. It's so fun to get the colors before everyone else! Plus, who doesn't love to see their name in lights! The deadline for the chance to win these prizes is one week from today, Sunday, July 24, EST.
If this is your first stop at our Blog Hop, you'll want to start at Bente's blog, and follow the hop in order so you don't miss anyone. If you've been hopping in order, your next stop is Lilith's blog.
Once you have visited all the blogs and uploaded a project to the CCG Gallery using Challenge 200, please make sure you check in at the Blog Hop discussion in the Special Announcements Forum at CCG. We will choose our August Guest Designer from that thread. Individual DT members will be choosing winners for the prizes they are offering. Good luck, and we hope you'll enjoy our blog hop!
Hi! If you haven't seen this week's color combo, here it is:
Isn't it delicious?
I thought they were perfect baby boy colors, here is what I created:
There's no special tips, not any real 'technique' to this page. I used the whale fountain as my 'drip' for the designers challenge. I know it was suppose to be in the form of a technique...but I thought the whale was perfect for the theme. I do love the look of the staggered banner stickers, though. I love banner stickers, and am always trying to find unusual ways to use them,
I added some dark brown to the palette in the card, I think it makes it even more baby boyish. For the designer's challenge, I just laid on the Stickles real thick to the sentiment block, until it started dripping.
That's it, I hope you have enjoyed my projects! Don't forget to leave a comment, and I will be using the random number generator to pick a winner for these:
You can find these handmade (by me!) butterfly embellishments published here:
So, if you love butterflies with lots of texture, be sure to leave a comment...and enjoy the rest of the Hop!
