This weeks prompt for the 52 card challenge was another colour combo. This time Nat chose this lovely fresh colour combo of green, aqua and a hint of blue
As with the last colour combo challenge I went through my scraps bag and pulled anything close to the colours. I had more light blue and aqua scraps than soft green so I went with these. I will admit now that I had a crafty tantrum while making my card as my original idea of running banners over a white doily on white card back fired as the doily blended in too much for my liking and I just couldn't get it to go how I pictured it. I tried misting the doily, inking it with an ink pad to match the colours but no it just didn't look right. After lots of shuffling of papers & browsing through Pinterest I decided to scraplift this card from Page Maps
Using only scraps I made this card
I used scraps from three different Echo Park collections and one (the ledger paper) from Dear Lizzy. I'm still not completely happy with it I admit, but it is growing on me.
