Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with a happy card featuring the new Teddy’s balloons image from Rachelle Anne Miller. I have a soft spot for images with balloons, and this one has plenty. I asked my color buddy Liz for a color combo suggestion, and she landed on the BG00 family, the YG20 family and the Y10 family of Copics. Teal, bright green and yellow is such a classic combo, so this came together fairly quickly, even for a procrastinator like me.
I colored the image with the colors she suggested, adding different colors only to bear. I trimmed my panel down slightly and stamped a sentiment from the Mini Messages stamp set from Mama Elephant using Sour Apple ink from My Favorite Things.
I created my card base from Classic Kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I trimmed a piece of patterned paper from the Party Time 6×6″ paper pad from My Favorite Things down to a strip, and it had just the right colors for my card. I put four layers of white cardstock scraps behind it for dimension, and adhered it to my card. I did the same thing with my colored piece, adhering it to the card left of center, before using the Seashore mix of embellishments from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards to finish off the card.
This color palette makes me happy!
