Analogous Colours at MMM

 Analogous colours are colours that sit in a group of three right next to each other on the colour wheel.  We usually use these combinations when doing monochromatic artwork.This week we are focusing on blues and Mynnette would like to see creations using turquoise, light blue, and dark blue with white or cream as your neutrals. You may stamp lined images and sentiments in either black or brown, but solid images should be stamped in one of the three blues.
I've used a digi image from MMM sponsor for July ... My Heart Pieces

Isn't she cute?... I used Promarkers  in three different shades of blue... and a skin tone neutral for her hair lol. I n the original digi image the little girl is picking lemons but i decided she  was collecting buttons!... so I could add blue buttons!... not sure it worked all that well.... what do you think? The DP is from Melissa Frances 6x6 5th Avenue Paper Pad.  The decorative middle of the oval was removed and the image placed inside with he edges covered with ribbon.
I also cut out parts of the bow so that it overlapped the ribbon

Basket of buttons collected with love........ lol

I made some blue backing paper in the same way as last weeks paper  which I stamped with Stampendous Ruffled Blooms  flower stamp.  I made this simple card with one of the flowers  added to an EF some ribbon and a sentiment all layered onto card in two shades of blue then attached to a dark blue 14cm x 14cm base card.

the larger tag was put through the Bug using the same EF as the main image then lightly dusted over with a blue ink pad. the sentiment was  added to a smaller tag.
I added turquoise beads  for the centre and a bit of Glamour dust added to the flower ruffles.

lots of "Blue" inspiration on the MMM Challenge Blog... pop across and be inspired to join us this week we'd love to see your creations.
Enjoy the sun!

These are both gorgeous Suzi. I love the blue shades. Cute image on the first card and I like the touch with the overlapping ribbon but the second one has to be my favourite. Beautiful composition and that flower is gorgeous. Lovely use of your embossing folders too.

Beautiful cards! I love the idea of her picking up buttons in her basket... she's clearly a crafter! And the diagonal ribbon looks stunning over the corner of the second card.
