Over at the Power Poppy blog they have a new feature called Hues to Use and this week the colors are really bright ones...orange, yellow and turquoise. They also had the Gerbera Daisies Clear and Digi stamp sets on sale this weekend so I bought the digi version and thought it would be perfect for using for the Hues challenge!
I decided to color 2 of the daisies yellow and have the middle one pop out with the orange. To bring in the turquoise I colored part of the sentiment and then used turquoise DSP. These images are so fabulous on their own that I don't like to add a lot of distracting elements, that's really not my style to begin with anyway, so I just added a few Sprinkles from Doodlebug to complete the card. I also didn't like the stark white edge of the image panel against the DSP so I sponged it with the yellow and orange to bring more color in. I know a lot of people think sponging is old school and out dated but it's one of my favorite ways to liven up edges.
