Welcome to the Colour Combo May Blog Hop as we explore using different color combinations to help us step outside of our comfort zone. This month we have been challenged to create a project using Crushed Curry, Polished Pink and Blushing Bride. Our Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to try this fun color combination.
For my card, I decided to focus on using just the Nature's Prints Bundle from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog to create my design. I used several of the images from the stamp set to create the background using all three of the colors and then chose one of the sentiments to heat emboss with Gold embossing powder onto a Basic Black cardstock label die cut with the coordinating dies. I kept the embellishments very simple, using the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add a touch of sparkle. I love how these colors combined to create the background for this clean and simple card design.

This clean and simple card design really showcases these beautiful colors. The images have a wonderful organic feel to them and I love how the colors and images blend together to create a beautiful background. I used Clear Wink of Stella to color the leaves of the large Polished Pink image to help blend the ink and add a touch of shimmer. The splotches in Crushed Curry and Blushing Bride Classic inks were stamped off once to create a lighter shade to fill in some of the white space, adding soft, subtle color to the design. The Gold embossing sentiment on the Basic Black label adds a touch of elegance to the design and I love how the Basic Black pops against the colorful background. I chose the Iridescent Rhinestones to add a subtle touch of bling that enhances the card design rather than competing.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to give this pretty color combination a try to create your own wonderful projects.
