June PTI Blog Hop: COLOR


Welcome to another Papertrey Ink blog hop!

"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!"
 
My color scheme for the first card was:


This has always been one of my favorite color combos ever!! I just love these colors together!  Here's the card:


In case you can't tell, the center is popped up on the flower.


And, I decided to do one more card but this time I added an additional color to the mix to change it up just slightly.

And here's that card:


Still working on my copic coloring skills.  Well, skills is a BIG word.  I really can't claim that I have copic skills yet, but I am having fun practicing.  I'll hopefully get it one of these days!

Thank you SO much for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think!
