In The Clouds

Thursday, July 2, 2015

 Orange and blue is one of my favorite color combinations especially for boys, but also in nature.  Orange flowers against a bright blue sky just do something for me.  They are colors that seem like they shouldn't work together, but they do so beautifully.
I used a really sweet set from Avery Elle to stamp my images, called Fly By.  I also used number stamps from this set to stamp a background on the blue cardstock. 
 I can't seem to stop layering panels of color on my cards.  I used the Love Mom Layers die to cut panels from blue, orange, and dark grey.  The top layer was also cut with a border die from Pretty Pink Posh to add to the cloud look.
 Thanks for stopping by again today!  What is your favorite combination of colors that shouldn't work, but really do?
