Color Hues: Blue and Orange


We're halfway through the month, and so it is time for a new Color Hues challenge! This time we are asking you to play with the complementary colours of blue and orange. I think there are lots of options with this pair of colours. I decided to go a bit snarky for my card: 


An orange tabby hipster wearing a blue blazer? Works for me. :D He is stamped on some die cut watercolour paper and coloured with Gansai Tambi paints. Rather than leave the glasses plain, I die cut him a new pair from blue foil cardstock. After adding the sentiment, I layered him with a couple of patterned paper panels and finished with a white card base. 


Where will the colours blue and orange take you? I hope you will visit the Color Hues blog to see all the beautiful cards my teammates have created, and feel inspired to join us! 

Supplies: Bazzill marshmallow & $ store blue foil cardstock, Master's Touch watercolour paper, Authentique Anchored patterned paper, Stampers Ananymous/Tim Holtz Hipster stamps & die, Hero Arts Irreverent Birthday stamps, Simon Says Stamp intense black ink, Gansai Tambi watercolour paints, Sizzix/Tim Holtz stacked deckle dies

Oh look! A cat. πŸ˜‰πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ I love the foiled glasses! Personally this is a color combo that I avoid however it also just happens to be Meg’s new university colors so I will use the opportunity to make her a congratulations card. πŸ˜‰
