June PTI Blog Hop


Good morning, Its the 26th Saturday of June 2010 morning for me here. This is my fourth blog hop with PTI.



This month's theme is all about color schemes.


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!
 I have two color schemes today.
 Here is the first one

I have choosen bright bold colors for some reason. Thinking back it is dull, wintery and grey here in Australia. Bright colors are stimulating and makes me more cheerful. Here is a set of two cards I made using the colors.







I have used PTI Distressed Stripes stamp set to creat the background for the panel. The frame and sentiment are PTI's Fillable frame #4 which are handcut and the leaves are from PTI's Masculine Motifs.  Dark Chocolate, Stamper's White, Orange Zest and Ripe Avacado cardstocks and the buttons are from PTI. The donut border is from EK success punch and the thread is from my stash. Ink pads are from PTI - Raspberry Fizz, Ripe Avacado, Orange Zest except SU's Chocolate Chip ink pad.


Here is the second color scheme.




And the card using the second color scheme.




  Materials used are the same as above except PTI's Hawaiian Shore ink pad and cardstock.I have tried to keep the sketch the same for all of the cards to see how different the card looks with different colors or just changing one color. Even with the pink on the last card, I fell it look more boyish card compared to the first two ones. Interesting results.
Anyway, hope like the cards you make note of these color combos. Now I am off to hop to see and take notes of all the other combinations. Happy Hopping!


Hugs
