I’m happy to share today’s card. While yesterday’s card was floral and beautiful (I compliment my card with the utmost humility), the colors were rich, regal hues melted into the white background. Today’s card, a color challenge for this week’s Pals Paper Arts Challenge, is wall-to-wall gorgeous colors that pop – Rose Red, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi. Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for this week’s color challenge:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Mmmmm…Pop! I admit it – I can’t step away from the White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. When I decided I wanted a dahlia that really pops in Rose Red, I knew I needed to use Rose Red paper to give the flower its color. White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to the rescue! That flower pops, and I cropped it to fit perfectly in the corner of this square of Whisper White.
- Let All the Colors Play. There are some color challenges that almost require us to minimize one of the colors – they are just “too much” together. For this color challenge, though, we get to let all the color play. Woo hoo! They look absolutely gorgeous together, so I didn’t let up on any of them. The fine, graphic pattern on the background piece of So Saffron from the Designer Series Paper Stack adds just the right amount of So Saffron to the face of this card.
- Layout. I’m excited by the layout of this card. Not only did I tuck the dahlia into the corner of the Wild Wasabi and Whisper White square, but I tucked all of that into the corner of the card base. That leaves a lot of So Saffron and Whisper White space, but there’s still balance – the banner that extends out of the flower and over the edge of the card adds just the right amount of weight to the card. I used my Hexagon punch to create the tip on my banner.
