Blue and Green should never be seen…

color comboWelcome to the Color Combo Blog Hop!
If you arrived from Digi Page blog you are in the right place! If you are here and didn’t come from the previous blog, I am listing the hop below my post so you can go start back at the beginning if you wish.
We were all challenged to come up with a crafty project using the colour scheme on the left, from Inspired Bride. Stylish!

Card 1

Today I’m going along with the wedding theme and highlighting a card I made for a couple of weddings with this basic colour scheme. I used the card technique from Jessica Sprague’s Computer Tricks for Cards class I took last year.
So I didn’t manage to sneak the mustard in there, but I think the scheme is near enough!
The first card I made by the book. Using a dry brushing and bubble wrap plastic effect in pale blue then printing on the flower design and adding the embellishments. I used teal vellum, rather than coloured cardstock.  I also only had narrow ribbon so I took two the light green ones and laid them side by side, then layered the deep teal one over the middle.

Card 2

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA           Rather than using paint, for the second version I used a deep teal ink over an embossed cardstock. I also only had narrow ribbon (again!) so I took two deep green ones and laid them side by side, then layered the lighter brown one over the edges.
Again I laid paper (brown mulberry paper) over the white cardstock card.
This time I used a stamp and handwrote the couples’ initials on the accent piece.
Which card do you prefer?
