Color Hues Challenge #22~Lime Green and Aqua...Mermaid Birthday


And here we are: mid-July already! How did this happen? We continue to experience overly warm temperatures here in Alberta, paired with smoke from wildfires in both our province and BC. Hopefully, the weather will cool and the rains will come...

Welcome to Color Hues Challenge #17, where we're inviting you to use hues of Lime Green and Aqua as inspiration for the next two weeks. Pretty!

Surprise! I didn't use a Turnabout stamp this time! Nope! Rather, I gave three of my little collection of alcohol inks - Pool, Limeade and a smidge of Gold Alchemy -  a play date, as the combination, for me, called for something 'sea/ocean.'  And what better than a shiny, pretty alcohol-inked die cut mermaid and seaweed, paired with cardstock aqua waves and a starfish. Easy! I really need to use my inks more often!

Please visit the rest of the team, along with our guest designer, Rosemary; they've created quite the array of dazzling delights with Lime Green and Aqua:

The challenge is open until 9:00 AM (EST) on July 29th.
 The winners will be posted an hour before our next challenge goes live (August 1st). 
The overall winner will have the opportunity to be a 
future Guest Designer!

Looking forward to seeing how this combination inspires YOU!

Thank you for dropping by!

I am so glad to see a mermaid in the challenge, and such a beautiful card! The alcohol inks are so pretty and I love the other elements. A fabulous design!

As soon as I saw the title of your post, I knew you'd hit the jackpot! These are fabulous colors for an ocean theme, and your alcohol inks are gorgeous. The seaweed and florals are perfect finishing touch!

Oooh Carol, this is lovely! Your mermaid looks fantastic! I like the group of sea plants next to her, too. So very pretty! Thansk for sharing. :)

Lindsey said...

Perfect choice for these colours, and a gorgeous card! I also think you should get those alcohol inks out more often, if the results are anything like these!

Nancy said...

As soon as I saw your card a light bulb went off in my head. I have a die-cut similar to yours in my arsenal that I totally forgot I had, it makes for a great sea background. Thanks for the kick in the head. LOL Love your mermaid too! Hope you have a great Sunday!

I love the flow-y look of alcohol inks and in those colors they look very seaworthy, Carol. Love that background die with the mermaid.

Great card, how lucky that you had just the right mix of inks, they work so well in your undersea themed card. Of course Aqua should send you scuttling for the marine themed dies and stamps! :)
