PTI June Blog Hop



Welcome to PTI's June Blog Hop!  Here is the criteria for this month...

"This month we thought it would be fun to focus on COLOR! We want to see your favorite Papertrey color schemes put to work. Be sure to post the color scheme near the top of your post in bold letters so everyone can collect them to use as a future reference! With everyone's different takes on combinations from the Papertrey spectrum, we will surely build an amazing resource that we can all utilize and fall in love with some new favorite color schemes!"

When I saw this, I knew exactly what colors I wanted to use!  Here is my color combo...Looks kinda CRAZY doesn't it? How in the world do I pull this off right?   Yep!  7 colors and white of course!



Here is my inspiration piece!  This is a camera strap I made recently!  When I saw the fabric I knew each color was PTI for sure!


So here is my card...


I love how the leaves look so much like the ones on the camera strap!  I would have never pulled this color combo together without that fabric!  I have said before I am a "monochormatic" girl so this was a great challenge for me!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you find some fabulous color combos out there on the blog hop tonight!

Stamps: Turning a New Leaf, Mega Mixed Messages
Paper: Pure Poppy, True Black, Smokey Shadow, Simply Chartreuse, Summer Sunrise, Raspberry Fizz

Kara said...

I thought," wow that has a lot of colors!" It really works though. the colors don't overwhelm the design! Just the right amounts of each. Great card!!

Wow, Laurie! Your card is gorgeous! I wasn't sure how you were going to incorporate all those colors without overwhelming your card, but you did it. Using Smokey Shadow to ground the colors is such a smart idea! I also love the twine that you used on the flowers. You're so talented!

Anika said...

Loving this! That is an awesome camera strap and a fantastic card! I LOVE those flowers, definitely need to give them a try.

Laurie this card is fantastic but let me be real ....... HOLY COW the camera strap is off the hook girl. Where the heck did you find the material and do you make the straps. I have a website saved that makes them but I have never seen one nearly as beautiful as yours. Will you take an order ?? :)
