Hello again, Friends! I'm so glad you're joining me today for Papertrey Ink's brand new newsletter feature, Color Play. Each month we'll be sharing a color scheme inspired by a particular photo as well as a project created with said collection of colors. This month's color combo was drawn from this photo (I added the swatches):
The colors I'm using today are Terra Cotta Tile, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, Soft Stone, and Ripe Avocado. I wanted to use a color palette that had the potential to feel bright and sunny. I don't know about where you are, but here in Ohio it can feel a smidgen dreary in the wintertime. This is a combo designed to let a little light shine in!
I started by stamping my pattern using the large floral cluster from Fancy Folk Art. I filled in the outline using the companion images in the set and adhered that piece to a Soft Stone base that had been textured with the Aida Impression Plate.
Next, I die cut a Mat Stack 5 die and trimmed off one of the long ends to create the shape for my sentiment. I stamped the "thanks" and heat embossed using white detail powder. That was adhered on top of the patterned panel and the entire base was wrapped with saddle stitched ribbon. A threaded button tied off the loose ribbon ends and pinking shears gave them a decorative edge.
I hope you're enjoying the newly redesigned newsletter and this month's Color Play feature! Take care and I'll see you again soon.
