Color Combos Galore 236 - In The Navy

Hi Everyone

This week over at Color Combos Galore we have a bold and trendy colour palette. 
 Perfect for those looking for something a little more masculine, we also have our pretty girly pages followed by some adorable cards.  
How could you not be inspired by what our design team have created.
  Don't forget you have until March 31, 2013 to get your project into the gallery. 
 Hope to see you there!
This picture shows really tells are story of the mischief my nephew can get up to.
 I went with Inspiration Picture 1 using the banners, I was also inspired by the pattern in one of the straws and chose to use some twine with the same pattern. I drew inspiration also from picture 3, the embossed part of the plate. I made a sun burst mask and used it with some texture paste then went back over with glimmer mist.
For the rest of the background of this page I have also used a mix of stamps and mists. Tim Holtz, My Minds Eye and Inkadoo.
The word BOY was created using some really old metal letters that I sanded back before apply Tim Holtz alcohol ink watermelon.
