This week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge is sticky sweet – and I love it! Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise are a bright-and-cheery combination, so it just makes sense to pair them with this adorable saying from Num-Num – “just a little something for you.” Here’s my card for this week’s PPA challenge:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Colors. While I love these three bright colors and completely appreciate their combined energy, I incorporated a lot of black and white (totally allowed with these challenges). My card still has the pop from the bright colors, but there’s not a sugar overload.
- Stacked with Love. The patterned paper that covers this card front is from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. I love the energy of these little diamonds – that’s why I picked it for this high-energy color challenge. This page from Stacked with Love is all black and white, so I used my Stampin Write Markers to create a pattern of diagonal stripes. I shared a video about this technique in February – you can see it here.
- Border Repetition. I love to pair up bordered elements on cards. In this project, the border around the based of the card mimics the borders around the circles. I cropped my sentiment and coordinating borders first and then repeated that same pattern on the outside – I really like the uniform look of it all.
