Welcome to the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge! This week I have the privilege of hosting the challenge! Here are the colors we are working with:
Gold is such a great addition to any card! It’s all about the sparkle, right?
I got a bit carried away with little dots on today’s card. The lower Whisper White panel was created by inking the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, inserting the Whisper White, and just pressing the folder together with my hands. This dotted the card stock with the pretty Pear Pizzazz ink. Then for the Pear Pizzazz panel, I actually embossed it with the same Softly Falling folder by running it through the Big Shot. The white panel just under the flowers is Shimmery White card stock watercolored with Pear Pizzazz ink and the Aqua Painter.The flowers were stamped on Shimmery White card stock and then watercolored with the Aqua Painter. I cut in between the petals of the flowers to give them more “movement.” These pretty flowers are from the Choose Happiness stamp set which is retiring ~ I wanted to use them one more time before they’re gone!
I took the photo above with the sun shining right in on the card, giving it that highlighted look. It shows the gold foil “thanks” from the Greetings Thinlit Dies. I’ve really enjoyed these dies, and am sad that they are retiring too. In fact I just noticed they are sold out! Guess lots of other people liked them!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Pop on over to the Pals Paper Arts website and see what the other designers have created. Better yet, create your own card and post it over there! I’d love to see what you do with these colors!
