Heartfelt Thanks

When I am stuck on color combinations, I have a variety of places I seek colors... putting any color challenges aside - I reach for my SU! Color Coach or My Create Ink. When I have scraps laying around this is highly recommended to get you "out of the box" ... and I love it!

This color comb actually comes from the SU! Color Coach, and though I hesitated for a moment - I do like the way it came together!

I have always been a fan of Rich Razzleberry and Tempting Turquoise - but never really thought to put them together. Then add a splash of Pear Pizzazz.. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?

I pulled out the new Framlets, from Stampin Up!, and then used the Elements of Style blooms in Pear. I used the Hodgepodge Happiness for the sentiment - since I never used them before. I must have punched a million {{insert exaggeration here}} flowers  to find one that I liked best.  Then I needed to match a circle punch, for the sentiment - which was 1 1/2 inch worked great!

Maybe I should have put more turquoise on the front, but I made up for it in the middle. This still allows writing of sorts, just not really a full sentiment - and I am trying to be better at inside sentiments! Slowly ladies.. slowly!

Where do you go when you need some color inspiration? Do you depend on color challenges on the web?  Do you have favorites that you  never step away from?  Tell me... I want to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hug the ones you love!

Have a great day!

it's those colors we are uncertain about that always look fantastic! There is a website called Design Seeds that has great color combos and I rely on challenges for color combos as well.
