PPA285: A Color Challenge

I made a very simple card for the Pals Paper Arts color challenge this week.





These are the 3 colors Jackie chose.



I sponged over a stripe stencil in Pink Pirouette - darker shade at the top and  lighter toward the bottom.
 

I think Watermelon Wonder is a great accent color.


Stamp: Hello
Paper: Whisper White 
Ink: Watermelon Wonder, Pink Pirouette, Tip Top Taupe
Accessories: Dots & Stripes Stencils, Stamping Sponges, 1/2" Circle Punch, Dimentionals

Thanks for visiting!

Such a sweet card. The sponging is beautiful. I have a tendency to want to always make the color intense. You have inspired me to try for a softer hand. While the card may be simple the design is striking. Thanks for playing with the Pals this week.

Thanks so much, Lynn! My CAS cards sometimes gets a little bleak, but I think the little smiley added fun to this card.

Thank you so much, Laurie! I bought the stencil a few years ago, and this was the first time to use it. I'm glad it worked well.
