Hey there, I've got a quick one to share before I head off to work this morning.
The challenge over at Flutter By this week is to use your favorite color on a card. Surprise, surprise I just had to go all out with the orange yumminess, LOL! Did you know that orange is the only color in the spectrum that can't be cooled down by another color? It's true... even though reds are considered "warm" they can also be mixed to have "cool" blue undertones and "warm" yellows can be "cooled" by green undertones... but not orange! I think that is part of what makes it my fave color, orange is always warm and happy. :)
For my main image I used Gertie Lulu from Stamping Bella and you've heard me lament about the lack of coloring space on these images before so I won't get into it, but I still think she's a beauty. And because there is so much black ink showing in the image, when I started coloring her in with the orange tones, monarch butterflies came to mind and I knew that I had just the paper to make the rest of the card come together.
Simple, quick and sweet... that always makes me happy!
