PPA 267 - a color challenge


We have a beautiful color challenge for you to try this week at Pals Paper Arts. The challenge is to create a card or papercraft project using Crushed Curry, Pool Party and Tangerine Tango, or similar colors. I hope you play along with us this week and if you're needing inspiration, please click here to visit the other design team members and check out their beautiful creations.


  • I sponged the three colors onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the images from the beautiful stamp set, Awesomely Artistic.
  • To give it a little something-something, I covered the entire image in Versamark and clear embossing powder. I love how the image comes to life when I heat it and melt the powder.
  • To make the image pop, I sponged the edges in Tuxedo Black ink and layered it on a piece of Basic Black card stock.
  • Quick and easy!
