Analogous colours at MMM

Hi everybody

This is the fourth week of our Colour Wheel challenge at Make My Monday, and this week we are looking at Analogous Colours.   Analogous colours are colours that sit in a group of three right next to each other on the color wheel.  We usually use these combinations when doing monochromatic artwork.  This week we are focusiing on blues -  turquoise, light blue, and dark blue with white or cream as your neutrals.

This is my take on it.  I must admit I found this the hardest of the colour combinations so far.

I have layered up card in Navy blue, light blue and turquoise with butterflies embossed across the top layer, and a light blue sheer ribbon sound around it.  I have used a Hero Arts stamps and dies, and used a lightish blue ink to stamp.  The flowers have been embellished with gems and a bit of sparkle.

We have a fabulous monthly sponsor for one lucky participant~

Priyanka from My Heart Pieces is offering 3 digis of choice to the July monthly winner. The DT were very generously given 5 digis to uses for these challenges and you will see them throughout the month!

There is lots of inspiration on the MMM Challenge Blog... pop across and be inspired to join us this week we'd love to see your creations.
