Summer Card Camp Day #5, Additional color combos



Another day of Summer Card Camp is here and Jennifer and Kristina have given us a bunch of additional color combos to play with. Here they are:



I was immediately drawn to the third line of colors, with the wonderful blues and greens. I stamped the Hero Arts, Life of the Party Stars, in two different colors for the background. I used the sweet, little basket of flowers from the Hero Arts Sending Smiles clear set, colored them with Copics, cut them out and popped them up for some dimension. The twine is actually two different pieces, twisted together. The sentiment is from the same stamp set but I cut it apart to fit my card.



As you can see, it's a gorgeous day here in Minnesota. I'm heading outside to play in the yard and gardens and to just relax. I'll be working the next three days, so I plan on enjoying the rest of this beautiful one.

I want to wish all my American friends a very Happy 4th of July weekend!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope your day is a bright one too! :)

Hi Barb,

I love seeing all your wonderful creations so far. I just had to look at them all, but am going to just comment here :D. They are all so amazingly beautiful. I love them all & especially this last one. What a great idea to twist two different strings together. Can't wait to see what else you do xoxoxoxoxo

Hello Barb
I could work with all the colour combinations, they are wonderful. The blue greens represent the best qualities of the two "mother" colours. They are thought of as cool, clean colours and especially when combined with white, but there is an element of warmth in blue-greens and you have conveyed this wonderfully in this card.
