Split Complimentary Colours at MMM

This is the last week of our Colour Wheel challenge at Make My Monday, and this week we are looking at Split Complimentary Colours.  You start with one colour, find its compliment, and instead of using the compliment, use the two colours beside the compliment.  The colours Mynette has chosen for us this week are Yellow, Bright Green, and Fuchsia.  Please pop along to the challenge for some inspiration.

For this I have used a set of Papertrey stamps I have had for a long time and never inked them.  They were stamped in Raspberry Razzle, and then coloured with Promarkers and Copics in various toning colours.  I filled the gaps in around the edge with a lime green.  The background is yellow card with a Hero Arts stamp used for the green lines.  A piece of dark fuschia paper lace along the bottom cut with a Cheery Lynn die completes the picture.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge - Hot summer colours

Sadly, one of our DT,  Suzanne B, has recently left the team.  I know I am going to miss her truly inspirational work, and wish her well.

At Make My Monday we are taking August as a summer recess.  This challenge will stay open throughout August, and the top 3 and overall monthly winner will be announced in the first week of September.

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,
