We have a soft color palette from Lynn Hoyt for this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.
I was not sure what I wanted to do with this color palette. I wanted to ink up the Best Birds Photopolymer Stamp set so my StampinMojo began envisioning the branch in Smoky Slate and the bird in Marina Mist. At that point I knew I was on my way.
I am not artistic, at least not in the sense of manually coloring the bird. So I had to come up with how to add the Marina Mist to my bird. I took a piece of Watercolor Paper and created a Marina Mist watercolor wash, then I stamped the bird in Smoky Slate ink onto the watercolor wash and cut him out with the coordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlits. It did take a few tries before I felt I achieved the right depth of the Marina Mist I wanted as well as the placement on the bird.
The branch was stamped twice once in Smoky Slate and again with Old Olive. After cutting out the Old Olive branch using the coordinating thinlit I cut off the leaves and added them to the Smoky Slate branch. The Pink Pirouette blossoms are the perfect finishing touch to the scene.
The sentiment is from the Wetlands stamp set.
Please head over to Pals Paper Arts and see what the other design team members did with this color palette.
