Here we are ready for another amazing Colour Me challenge!
Lucky for you this monochromatic palette is Tangelo Twist and Neutral....ORANGE you glad we are keeping it bright?! I am!
This image reminds me of a card that I love made by my friend Kate at Pinned & Penned a while back. Kate has such a bold style, I so envy her creative genius! Check out her card here.
Anyhoo, using the photo, colors and Kate for inspiration, I decided to be a little bold myself. I mimicked the texture in the photo and Kate's card by adding embossing paste, the tattered edges around the starfish and this delectable ribbon (that reminds me of seaweed!) were perfect for the occassion. The soft hue and gloss of the pearls was a nice contrast. The products include a Tim Holtz Stencil, Design Memory Craft embossing paste, SU! paper, Stampers Anonymous stamp, copics and Simon Says Stamp pearls.
The minute I finished this I popped it into the mail for my Mother. Her birthday was yesterday (the 3rd). Typically we go to the Oregon Coast every year to visit and celebrate, but this year there was a conflict that came up. So, I thought the card (and the little gift inside) might bring a little bit of cheer to her and ensure that she knew I was thinking of her. :) Happy Birthday Mama!
So with that I hope you have found some inspiration and will come and join us over at Colour Me! The other gals have some amazing stuff to inspire you further so be sure to check out their blogs too.
