Power Poppy Hues to Use

Today is an exciting day! I am a guest over at the Power Poppy blog on the Hues to Use segment! I am so excited to be able to take part in this great challenge and want to thank the fabulous Julie Koerber for having me! (boy I love those exclamation marks LOL)

Here are the colors for this week....

The pink in this weeks Hues to Use really pops so I wanted to make sure the image I used highlighted that color. The digital set Bees in Foxglove was a great way to have the pink take center stage. Fun fact.... foxglove doesn't normally survive in my part of Alaska because of the winters, but it is quite prevalent down in SE Alaska.

After printing out my image I die cut it out with a rectangle panel and I used my Copics R81, R83 and R85 to color in the foxglove blooms. The leaves and stems were colored with Copics YG03 and YG25. I threw in a bit of Y04 to color the bees visiting the foxglove.

To bring in that light sandy color I used the same die I cut the image panel with to cut a piece of sandy colored patterned paper. I also used the die to cut a piece of pink patterned paper and set both of those at angles behind the main image panel. The card base is green embossed with a large polka dot folder, carrying on the polka dot theme of the patterned paper.

To finish off the card I used the sentiment from the Bees in Foxglove set, changing the color of the text to green. I cut the sentiment panel to the size I wanted and then cut the corners with a round corner punch and adhered it to the front of the card.

Make sure you head on over to the Power Poppy blog to play along with Hues to Use! If you play along YOU could be one of the next guests on the blog! Let's see what you can do with these colors :)

Thank you again to Julie and Power Poppy for having me as a guest this week!
