Mango Melody

It's shaping up to be a very gray week here--we're supposed to get rain and maybe thunderstorms every day this week.  So how about a very bright orange card to offset that...

When I got my preorder stuff earlier this week, as soon as I saw the Mango Melody cardstock I thought what am I going to do with THAT so of course I had to attempt using it first.  SU! has released some color combo charts to go along with the color revamp, so I took this combo from them.  Actually I used Powder Pink in place of the new Petal Pink, which is more peachy, because I don't have any form of Petal Pink ink yet.  So Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide (my favorite) with Mango Melody.

Here's the sketch from Fab Friday that I used:

The sequins were a last-minute add to the card because I got some stray Tranquil Tide ink on the card that I didn't want--it's hard to get a good crisp image on watercolor paper and I pressed down the stamp hard enough that some stray ink from the edge of the stamp and the blank spot in the top of the wing got on the card.  There are no mistakes, just opportunities for embellishment, right?

Well, I hear the kiddo talking to himself so let's get this day started.  Have a great one, kids!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Beautiful Day
Ink:  Mango Melody, Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide
Paper:  Mango Melody, Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide, watercolor paper
Accessories:  Tutti Frutti adhesive sequins

Beautiful and unexpected color combo! You used the Mango reall well! And I tell my stampers all the time that "mistakes" are just a reason to add embellishment or use our creativity to "fix" it! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

So funny, I think Mango Melody is my new fave color - which I totally didn't expect, lol. This combo is perfect for your lovely butterfly - and I don't see any mistakes, either, lol. Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

What a beautiful card! The colors are perfect (I was surprised at how much I like Mango Melody too!) and so is your design. Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday, hope to see you again soon!
