Aloha friends,

Sharing my submission for Color Throwdown challenge #502

Blue is my favorite color and when I saw the color scheme for this week’s challenge I just had to play πŸ™‚

I really wanted to create a card with Lawn Fawn Aloha set that I just recently purchased and that’s how the blue pineapple came about.

I blended 3 Distress Inks (Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean and Stained Glass) to get an ombre look then white heat embossed the pineapple, sentiment and the sunglasses. I fussy cut all 3 images.Β  To intensify the blue color of the pineapple I used several blue shades of Zig Clean Color Real brush markers then used the grays to color the crown.

To create the background I used beautiful Abstract Triangle Stencil by Simon Says StampΒ and the same blue shades of distress inks. I die cut the background with Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die then backed it with craft foam.

Next I adhered my images and the sentiment with foam tape. To finish the card I added Nuvo Crystal in Navy Blue.

Thank you for visiting πŸ™‚
