After last week's Punny Valentine Challenge at The Paper Players, we have an exciting colour challenge for you: three core colours plus one other of your choice.
I had a bit of trouble including a fourth colour but went for using some touches of copper to help accent the sentiment.
I enjoyed using a new set from the Occasions catalogue, Perennial Birthday. Apart from a number of great birthday sentiments, the other stamps in the set are floral bits and bobs to let you build up a garden or bouquet, so I was pleased to see that it could also create a more masculine offering.
After repeat stamping HAPPY BIRTHDAY in the three colours on the background, I made a cluster for the second part of the wording. The sentiment is in Dapper Denim. There's a scalloped circle in Tranquil Tide on a copper foil circle. That's popped up on dimensionals over a pair of Everyday Labels in Eastern Palace DSP. Then there's a bit of copper metallic thread tucked in behind.
At The Paper Players, we'd love to see what you do with these colours. Here's a reminder of the few rules to keep in mind.
- Create a NEW paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
- Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
- Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
- Please link your card to no more than four challenges, total. Entries linked to more than 4 challenges, including ours, will be deleted without notification.
