summer of color week four

It is hard to believe that this is the fourth week of Kristin's Summer of Color.  The colors that were voted in for this week are charcoal gray and pale pink.  I do not think of these colors for summer, but maybe that's isn't the intent of this challenge.  Perhaps it is just a way of getting us to think of using colors that we may not normally use.

Again, I chose to make two ATC's for this week. I will enjoy looking back at my collection of ATC's using the six different color combos.



Kinda' girly and romantic this time.  I found both of these images in an old Readers Digest song book.  The word phrases were cut from old books; something I do when I am watching TV and there are too many commercials!  I like to use them in ways that make sense or not; whatever strikes my fancy.

Have a great week!

Your ATCs are not just beautiful, they are quite clever, too. I agree that these don't really look like summer colors, but I also like your take on why these are the ones the majority of people seem to have chosen them.
