PPA 227 - Color Challenge



At Pals Paper Arts this week, our Color Team has come up with three gorgeous autumn colors for your palette this week:  Crushed Curry, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie. We hope you can play along with us!

  • I sponged the three colors onto Whisper White card stock and cut the images using the Autumn Accents and Flower Frenzy Bigz L dies. I have a weakness for all the Bigz and Original dies, because they are like no other. These versatile dies are backed by the thickest blade and have a powerful cut. Just one die creates amazing shapes from card stock, chipboard, magnet, poly foam, metallic foil, shrink film and even fabric. That makes them a wise investment and paper crafting necessity.
  • To give the leaves some texture I inked with Versamark and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.
