PPA136 Color Challenge

It's time for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge. This time we used Real Red, Night of Navy and Whisper White. This is perfect for a young woman I know who is going into the military.

I "deployed" my Betsy's Blooms Stampin' Wheel and inked it up with Real Red. I didn't have a Real Red ink cartridge, but for stamping just across this card, I rolled it over and over my Real Red ink pad and it worked just fine. If you were  to roll a longer design, you would definitely need an ink cartridge.

My Night of Navy matt is lined using the Lines embossing folder in my Big Shot. On top of that, I layered my blooms, and some circles. On the left I stamped from the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set one of the flower groupings in Night of Navy. I punched it out with a 1" circle and matted it with a 1-1/4" Real Red circle.

The middle circle is one of those same blooms from circle #1, punched with one of the Itty Bitty Shapes punch. It's adhered with a Stampin' Dimensional over the large Real Red stamped bloom. I punched the bloom using a 1-1/4" circle punch and matting with a 1-3/8" circle punch in Night of Navy. Lastly, it's mounted onto a Scallop Circle, punched from Whisper White card stock.

For the sentiment, I stamped a Real Red circle from Circle Circus (one of my FAV sets), then stamped in Night of Navy ink using Fabulous Phrases "Best Wishes." This was then punched out with a 1-3/8" circle punch. All three circles were playfully placed using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I hope you will use our colors for inspiration and make your own card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and upload it to play along with Pals Paper Arts
