Picture Perfect Creations #51

WOW 2 posts in 1 day. Now that`s something I don`t do very often.

This is the colour swatch from PPC for this week. I`ve been mulling over what to do with these colours for days and finally had the chance to dig about amongst my stash today.

I`ve finally got my head around these colour combo`s I think. There`s always one colour that throws me so I`ve decided that, for me, it`s better to work out which is the " wrong " colour and then use it very sparingly. This week it was the blue. I tried all the different combo`s and the other 3 look so rich together, so the blue drew the short straw.

This is what I came up with,
I don`t think it`s one of my better efforts, now it`s done I think I might have been better with more layering and I might do another to see, watch this space.

I used pale blue card for my base.
The DP is  Papermania Capsule Collection Sunshine which just happened to have this red and mustard :)
I`ve layered that onto some kraft card before layering it onto the base.
The image is a Hero Arts Called Leaf Flourish Stamped in Red onto Mustard card and cut out with a nestie circle.
I cut a strip of kraft card and used a Flourishes Tag Line sentiment stamped in red.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Well Lynne, I think it's a lovely card . . . and I'm in total agreement with you about the blue being the "odd colour out".

    Hugs, Sandra

  2. I think it is a lovely card too x

  3. I think you're right about the blue being the odd one Lynne; the other colours are so warm. You've done a cracking job with them though! I love that stamp. x


Thank you for comments, they mean a lot.
