Hues to Use inspired by ... VEGGIES!

Hello sweet peeps & welcome to yet another color combo to spark a bit of creativity! I am sorry that I am late getting these colors to you! I pulled a "human being" and completely spaced this post! Do you ever have those days where you ask -- "What day is it?" Well, Monday came and went. I had my card all ready to go and then -- BAM -- forgot to write the post! UGH! So, let's move on and see what I have in store for you this week!


Did you know a cruciferous veggie a day keeps the cancer at bay? Well, Marcy does and that's why she truly digs this plate above! This is all an effort to eat more broccoli, more brussels sprouts, more cabbage or as she calls it, "all that cruciferous jazz!" Above -- those fun oranges, greens and bits of off white are what Marcy whipped up as a kind of cruciferous slaw that she says was pretty good --  although not as good as the Salted Carmel Truffle Blizzard she had the night before! ;-) Regardless, I thought this plate of fresh and healthy goodness was the perfect dose of inspiration for this week's challenge!

SO, HOW DO YOU PLAY ALONG? Well, my friends, it is as easy as 1-2-3! Simply use all three colors in your next creation and then, don't forget to link up your fine work using the linky below! Just that simple! 

So, how did I take this trio of colors and put them into play? Here's a look! 


I took the digital stamp set -- Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher -- and printed it off. One quick note, if you like this digi, this beautiful image is also available in a clear stamp set with... DIES!  For the sentiment, I did use the one from the digital stamp set Orchid Cascade. I loved the font and how compact it was -- perfect for my little circular die!

So, to get the color scheme was easy -- I have greens in the foliage, a splash of white in the layout and of course, orange in those beautifully drawn tulips! Of course, I colored it all up with Copics and used a mix of greens plus YR00, YR04 and YR07. The greens were YG03, YG05 and YG17 (for the most part).

And, here's a closeup...



And that, my friends, is it! So get those fingers inky and play along with me! If you put these colors to use, don't forget to link up your card below to that we can all see! And, as I always mention, you never know when a card or creation might have us asking you to guest host this weekly challenge! Wouldn't that be fun? So, give these colors a try and have fun too! 

See you back here soon!
