4 Colors

The January challenge at Paper Smooches is a fun one - they've called it 4 colors!  We can use their examples, or choose colors of our own.  I started with this old scrap of My Mind's Eye paper, and built my card around it.  My colors are melon, yellow, aqua, and green.

Paper Smooches Jan challenge

supplies: white, Surf Blue, and black cardstock, pale blue vellum (for canning jar), and My Mind's Eye paper from their Collectible collection, Paper Smooches Best Buds and Lovely Thoughts (sentiment) stamps, Spectrum Aqua markers, Winnie & Walter Audrey's Cutaways die

I stamped an extra canning jar on aqua vellum and glued it over my main panel.  Glossy accents, used very sparingly, worked great to secure it.

Here are some suggested colors:

Thanks for your visit!  


  1. Just love your four-color bouquet, Lin! The jar looks great with the vellum over it!
