This week, Pals Paper Arts has a fresh, fun color combo (PPA258) to get your creative juices flowing! It combines two new In Colors (Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush) with the tried and true hue of Night of Navy:
As I said, it is fresh and fun. I am confident that so many of you will adore creating with these colors! The green and pink-ish red are bright and cheerful while the blue brings in a nice balancing tone. It's actually quite the "preppy" color combo (and I mean that in the best way) and really wonderful for summer.
However, I must admit, I really struggled with this one...
I do not have ink in Cucumber Crush or Watermelon Wonder and that was part of the quandary. When faced with a challenge to use a color combo, a "go to" technique for many crafters is lots of white space with just a few splashes of color. That was not a possibility for this one!
So, using lots of another neutral (Smoky Slate), a couple pops of color from Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder card stock, a little stamping with the Words of Truth and Writing Notes stamp sets and my Night of Navy ink, I have this inspiration for you:
Oh, did I mention I pulled out my brayer too? The Night of Navy background is courtesy of my brayer and ink! This is truly becoming my fave "fast and fabulous" technique!
Here is the full collection of new In Colors:
Of the new colors, which ones are you "crushing" on? For me, it is Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe...love them! Be sure to leave a comment with your faves!
And, do come play along with us at Pals Paper Arts! The PPA258 Challenge closes on July 7 at 12 noon Eastern!
Enjoy a little creativity today!
