March Color Combo with Heather H (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you!

Here is my color inspiration for this month - I don't know if I'm the only one that feels like winter has lasted FOREVER this year, but I felt like a nice bright and happy palette with some dreams of summer days to come was in order!

One of my favorite techniques lately has been playing with alcohol inks to create fun backgrounds - so that is where I started for my color combo on this card. I used Flamingo, Amethyst, and Limeade Alcohol inks for this background, blending with blending solution.

Next I die cut the solid heart from True Dotty Heart Cutaways from white cardstock to use as a base for my cute birdies from So Tweet with Evelin T Designs. I colored the birdies up to match the ink background, just reversing the order of the colors, then die cut with the Coordinating Dies

I stamped the big "happy" from In a Word: Happy Coordinating Cutaways in Party Dress ink, and then added a little additional sentiment from Party On with Evelin T Designs stamped in Lime Rickey and trimmed it to a thin strip to mount underneath. I added some foam adhesive behind some of the layers to add a touch of dimension to finish it off!

Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! ! So without further ado, here they are!

First up - this GORGEOUS marbled creation from Maryam! I love the pretty colors with that fun background - beautiful!

Next up, next up, this classy and perfect card from Greta pretty much nailed the challenge colors! I love the birch trees and the sentiment pairing, the touch of sparkle from the sequins, and the pretty die cut edge all around!

And finally, isn't this beauty from Megan Beth AMAZING?!?!? Love how crisp and clean it is, and all the different textures and color to her background!
