August Color Combo with Heather H. (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you! We are going to do things a little differently this time - ANYTHING GOES! So you are welcome to choose your own color combo (just make sure and post it or a link to it in your post so that we can see your inspiration) - or you can go back and choose a color combo from past challenges (you can find them all HERE)! Or if you like, you can use the color combo I posted below! :)

 And this time I made a SUPER clean and simple card for an inspiration piece - a little different than my usual!

Here is my color inspiration for this month - I admit to feeling a bit sheepish when I realized how close my color choice was this month around to last month! I actually hadn't looked back to remember what last month's was until I picked this out of my Pinterest board for inspiration - I think it must be a summer thing to be attracted to yellow (sunshine and all of that maybe?) Anyway - apparently I'm loving this color combo lately!

I built my sweet little flower using In Bloom: Anna's Flora. I first stamped the bloom, masked off just the bottom of the flower to stamp the stem, then masked off the stem to add the leaves - super easy peasy! I then colored the image in with Copic markers.

I finished off by building a sentiment using Sentimental: Gift - using 3 different sentiments together.

Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! You guys all ROCKED this past color combo, so it was super hard to choose my favorites! (Which gives me hope that you'll forgive me for making this next one so very similar?) Anyway...I did my best to narrow it down - just know that I wanted to pick you ALL as favorites!

First up - this absolutely gorgeous card by Ashwini! This card is plain and simple a work of art! Absolutely gorgeous - and great job using the color combo!!!

Next up, I love this fun graphic take from Marlena! She absolutely nailed the colors from the combo - and I love the fun and playful layout! Perfection!

And then we have this clever little card by Shona Chambers! I love her fun layout with Mini Scenery: Madison - fussy cutting it the way she did, and of course, her use of the challenge colors are spot on!

And finally, Megan Beth created this lovely floral card - love the way she stamped those florals in colored ink, then colored them in for a no line effect! Great work!
