Color Challenge Tuesday #2-2016

Tuesday seems like the perfect day to introduce you to Amy.

Hello! My name is Amy. 
I am a wife, mother of 5 and a licensed educator. 
 I have always crafted in some way or another and enjoy making lots of DIY items.  
In 2007 I began cake decorating and bought my first Cricut machine to cut sugar paste. 
About 1 year later I decided to delve into the world of paper crafts. 
I've been scrapbooking about 6 years and card making about 5 years. 
When I began card making most of my cards went to a non-profit organization 
called Operation Write Home who sent handmade cards to soldiers overseas. 
I then graduated to participating in challenges, creating a blog 
and becoming a design team member for several challenge blogs.
 I guess I consider myself an artist; an artist of 12 x 12 and 4.25 x 5.5 canvases. 

Today's color challenge is 

Let's see how Amy used it.

For this card I search through my stash of cardstock and DP scraps to find the colors in the sketch.
 I pulled out my card sketch book and used Deconstructed Sketch #42 for inspiration. 
The DP comes from The Winter Basics stack by DCWV. Cardstock used is by Gina K Designs in Blue Denim, Powder Blue, In the Navy, Moonlit Fog and Pure Luxury White. 
To recreate the softness in the picture I chose a stamp from the Meadow Inkadinkadoo’s stamp set for the focal point, MFT Destressed Diamonds and a sentiment from Stampin’ Up
 called Circle of Friendship. I added some white ribbon
 and a punched piece Moonlit Fog cardstock using EK Success Round Binding Edge Border Punch.
 I used White ink from WPlus9 and Powder Blue by Gina K Designs  ~Amy

Up next is Denise with two great military graduation cards.

When I saw the color challenge, it reminded me of the Air Force colors and since my son and his roommate were graduating from Pilot training, I made cards for them using those colors and red as an accent. The planes were from a 3-D sticker set I purchased and the background was embossed using a Darice folder.  ~Denise

Have you played with this color scheme yet? Why not? 
There's so much to do with blues and white. 

Happy Crafting
Theresa & the Design Team
