I had no trouble at all with this colour combo...these are soooo my colours! In a way though, that made this card a bit harder to make. The colours didn't really steer me in any particular direction. In the end, I was steered by my workshop hostess from yesterday, who showed me that the 5-petal flower punch fits one of the flowers from "In the Spotlight" perfectly (it was a light bulb moment, I tell ya!). Then I just started playing around with other flowers from the set and punches, and before I knew it, I had 5 flowers on my desk, and the rest was easy :o) The colours we had to use were from this picture:
Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, So Saffron and Not Quite Navy.
I used stamps from In the Spotlight, Little Pieces and So Many Sayings. And LOTS of punches: Scallop circle, 5-petal flower, 3/4" circle, 1" circle, 1/2" circle. The patterned paper is Old Olive Prints. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the row of dots straight, and to position "be happy" perfectly. I used markers to ink it up in Bashful Blue and Not Quite Navy.
