Hi!! Today is a Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge and the colors are wonderful ~ so soft! Designer Lynn Hoyt has chosen two Subtles (Marina Mist and Pink Pirouette) and one Neutral (Smoky Slate), and they combine for a beautiful color palette.
To go along with the soft colors, a little watercolored panel is just the right thing. The flowers used here are from Touches of Texture. I’m really enjoying watercoloring and find that the more I do it, the more comfortable I am with it 🙂 I added a few coats of Clear Wink of Stella in the flower centers for glimmer!
The panel is set on a piece of Pink Pirouette card stock embossed with the Festive Embossing Folder (super cute!!).
Do you see the adorable little birdie? He’s from a brand new stamp set available August 2nd called Thoughtful Branches. This set has a coordinating framelit set with a die for this cutie!!! In fact, there are TWO little birdies, one facing each direction and TWO coordinating framelits!
Please pop on over to palspaperarts.com to see what the other designers have done with these colors, and then create a card and join us!! I’d love to see you there!
