Pootles’ Colour Challenge 002 : My first Colour Challenge

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Pootles’ Colour Challenge 002, My first Colour Challenge.


I am so pleased I have a chance to participate in Pootles’ Colour Challenge 002, I could not join in last week because as most of you know I have just moved house and had no internet and very little phone signal. You don’t realise how much you use the internet until you can’t.

Please check out the challenge here, there are some fabulous entries showcasing these colours and different uses for them.

We were set the challenge to create a card or 3D project using only these colours.

We could use all of these colours or just a few of them, I chose to use them all although there is only a little Smoky Slate in my card. I love Wisteria Wonder so definitely had to feature that colour.


I used the Banners for You bundle, I have been wanting to try this 3 section banner for a while and this seemed the perfect time to use it.

I started with a base of Whisper White and added a panel 1/8″ smaller of Emerald Envy DSP, I then cut a piece of Whisper White 4″ x 3.5″ and stamped the flowers in Wisteria Wonder and leaves in Emerald Envy.

I also stamped a couple of flowers on a small scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut them before adding them with dimensionals, I still hadn’t figured how use the Smoky Slate but then thought I needed to add something else so I added some stamped splashes, I like the finished effect.


I die cut the banner after stamping the outline and words on it, I love the tone on tone effect with the Wisteria Wonder.

The panel and banner were added with dimensionals, the card was finished with a bow and some enamel shapes in Emerald Envy. I really like the finished card, there are some fantastic entries and also Pootles lovely card, please remember to check them out here.
