Cardmaking

Teal, Gold & White Colour Combination!

Last week I needed to make a wedding card for my brother and his wife (who just renewed their vows at the weekend) so I decided to use a colour scheme to help me design it. Little Miss was a bridesmaid and I knew her dress was golden (though I hadn’t seen it) but I didn’t know anything else about the colour scheme. So I just picked one of my favourite colours of teal, and used that with white and gold – which made a gorgeous classy combo…

Pretty huh?

I literally just dug through my stash finding objects that matched the colour scheme in my head, including the gold flower which is one of my spray-painted embellishments:

Then I painted their names with watercolours on some art paper, flicking some drops of paint over the top too:

Before putting it all together!

The heavy flower and budded stem are adhered on with hot glue to make sure they won’t fall off:

I think it looks nice and classy:

And I was super happy when I arrived and found out that Cheeky Boy – who was a page boy / best man – had a teal hat to wear with his outfit:

How perfect was my colour scheme?! What a good guess. And don’t the kids look cute? It took about 12 takes to get them to both smile in vaguely the right direction though!

Have you ever used a teal, gold and white colour combination? Why not try it out. Or you could try using white and gold with one of your favourite colours. Let me know if you do!

Have a great day,

A Challenge – To Use Teal, Orange, and White {NOW CLOSED}

(This post is part of my Refresh Your Craft & Soul Blog Event – see the beginning HERE!)

I thought we should have another challenge {NOW CLOSED} to get the day really moving!

This one is a colour combination challenge, to use Teal, Orange and White:

Teal & Orange Colour Challenge at Jennifer Grace Creates

These are the colours I’ve suggested, but you don’t have to match the shades perfectly. Just make sure you have orange and blue hues as the dominant colours on your project!

The winner of this challenge will receive this prize:

A pack of Crate Paper The Pier Alphas, and a Glitz Uncharted Waters Washi Tape and Roller Doodle!

Here’s a layout for some inspiration…

Living Life To The Max:

I shared this photo on instagram last summer, after adding the overlays with the Rhonna Designs App. My sister is so cool because she loves the seaside as much as I do, and she’s play in the sand and swim in the sea with me – my hubby doesn’t really like the beach, so it’s very refreshing when I get to go with another grown up who likes it there!

I used one of my Happy Scatter Seaside Smiles Die Cut Cards, and added a ‘flag’ to the top of the sandcastle using a chipboard sticker and a paper scrap:

I was quite impressed that I managed to find lots of alphas in the right hues to spell out my title:

I found lots of other bits and pieces too – the cloud in the top right is cut from the Refresh Your Craft & Soul Free Printable Sheet:

See how the word ‘sea’ is written on a separate piece of paper? I wrote the wrong word (I said she’d swim in the sand – doh!), so I covered it up with a bit of paper. It’s my favourite lazy way to cover a journaling mistake!

Be Inspired:

Use a refreshing teal & orange colour combination

Add an extra detail to an embellishment (like the flag on the castle)

Have at least 4 different alpha sets in one title
