Mo's Callenge # 44

A Color Inspiration

Aren't these colors wonderful?! Peggy has chosen this photo to inspire us this week. Just looking at these colors makes me happy! 
I made two cards for this week's challenge using two different color combinations from the photo.

The first merges two of Mo's wonderful images, the straight-haired version of "To the Beach" and "Jeffy in July".  I knew as soon as I saw them that they'd go together well, but several others had the same idea and beat me to it!
I used mostly yellow and orange on this, real hot summer colors, perfect for a beach scene.
The brown panels are  pieces of cardboard that I colored with Copics.

Images: "To the Beach" and "Jeffy in July" from Mo's Digital Pencil

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencils, Flower punch

Papers: SU! Only Orange, Green Galore, and Yo-yo Yellow, PTI white, K & Company Citronella collection DP, Corrugated cardboard,

Embellishments: Real sea shells, Plastic shells, Silk flower petals, Brads

Pretty in Pink

Just pinks and greens for this one, a combination I'm particularly fond of!
Don't you just love Bella and Bronte? This image cracks me up. I love her 'not so tight' tights!

Image: "Bella Carrying the Cake" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment from TLC

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencils, Mounting tape, Glue Dots, Martha Stewart Leaf punch.

Papers: SU! Green Galore, Gable Green, Melon Mambo, PTI white, Basic Grey Green at Heart DP

Embellishments: Satin ribbon, Heart charms, Hand made spiral roses
