August/September Color Combo with Heather (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you! Last month we stretched the challenge for two months, since I had a big family vacation planned for the summer. Well...surprise! We are going to do the same thing this month, since I am going to be traveling to Italy with a friend in September for two weeks, and that will give me extra time off to enjoy that trip!


Here is my color inspiration for this month - I was so very inspired not only by the lovely color combo in this photo...but even the pretty background design in the inspiration photo:


I started off by recreating the background using some Gouache Paints - a medium I've been loving more and more lately! I chose some colors from the color combo, and just used a brush to swipe on the colors, mixing a little here and there along the way.


Once that dried, I die cut the detail heart from True Multifaceted Heart Cutaways from white cardstock, tied some twine onto it, and then adhered it onto my background, tucking the top of the twine behind the front of that panel. I also tied a bow on the top of it, using that to hide the adhesive behind the bow.


Finished off by stamping my sentiment from Sentimental: Love on the top, and added a white scallop rectangle from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways layered behind it before mounting on a coordinating blue cardbase.


Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! 

First up - look at this GORGEOUS card by Aswini - such a lovely card, and perfect capture of the color combo as well! 


Next up, I love this little cutie from Becca! This image is one of my favs, and the fun layers make perfect use of the color combo as well!


And finally, this card by Nananas - love the soft textures with the color combo perfectly incorporated!
