Spring Brightness – Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge 191

This week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge palette is:

PPA 191 Colors

This palette proved to be a very good challenge for me since it took me out of my comfort zone completely.  Here’s what I came up with…hope you like it!

PPA 191 Challenge

If you have followed my blog for any length of time you know I love the Stampin’ Up! flower punches and I’m kind of hooked on polka dots.  I kept the design simple and stayed with the 3 colors in the palette.

PPA 191 Challenge Close Up

From this close up you can see that I gave the Blossom and Pansy Punches some depth by stamping the large flower from Peaceful Petals and I also used some sponging.  I used the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (a FREE SAB choice) to jazz up the Gumball Green border a bit.

Stampin’ Up! Supplies used:

Stamp Sets:  Peaceful Petals (133107), Express Yourself (Hostess 130339)

Ink:  Pumpkin Pie (126945), Gumball Green (126861)

Paper:  Whisper White (100730), Gumball Green (126840), Pumpkin Pie (105117)

Accessories:  Blossom Punch (125603), Pansy Punch (130698), Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Set (118309), Petite Petals Punch (133322), Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (133520), Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246)
