Color Combos Galore #233 - Captivated by Coral

It's Friday, and that means another beautiful Inspiration Board from Color Combos Galore....


Supply List:
Stampin' Up! - Cardstock (Early Espresso, Whisper White, Apricot Appeal, Groovy Guava); Patterned Paper (Blushing Bride 6x6 Designer Series); Ink (Groovy Guava); Journaler (Going Grey); Baker's Twine (Early Espresso); Doily Die; 1/2 inch hole punch; Rhinestones
American Crafts (Dear Lizzy - Neapolitan) - Tag, Stickers, Polaroid Patterned Paper
Lilybee Design - Letter Stickers
Apple Barrel - White Paint
Ek Success - Border Punch

I chose Inspiration Photo #2, and included a tag and doily, seen in Photo #4.  I also used paint as prompted for Photo #3. This was my first time ever using paint spatter on a project, and I absolutely loved it! I will definitely be doing it again :)  I mixed a little bit of Groovy Guava  ink refill from Stampin' Up! with a little bit of White Apple Barrel Paint, and just slung it off of my brush onto my LO a few times. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

So Lovely:

I used Inspiration Photo #1 using cabochons for the 'Focus on Accents' prompt.  I also included a tag with the sentiment, and mini clothes pins from Photo #4.

I based my card off of this sketch from Cardabilities:

Although, I rotated the focal point to vertical...

You won't want to miss out playing along with these colors, I had so much fun digging through my stash to find things to match up:)  Remember the deadline is the end of the month for all of February's Inspiration Boards.  

Thanks for looking!

Pin It!

Oh my, these projects are so beautiful. I love everything about them. The black and white photo with those soft colors is perfect. Love the splatter, and the way you attached the tag with to that notched out piece, it's just so cool! Glad you were inspired by the Cardabilities sketch. I'm going to have to go over to CCG to check that out.
