Colour Q: Experimenting with Colour

Hello! Today I find myself experimenting with colour :) This is generally something I struggle with and I often tend to use no more than three colours per card. I find that once more colours are thrown into the mix, creating a coherent card is far more challenging. Today I wanted to play with Colour Q:

Naturally, putting all these colours on one card scared me! Here's what I came up with:

I have to admit, it is not my favourite card, yet I liked it enough to share :) I like the panels background. I wanted the panels to by my main focus, but thought the card was just too plain with only the sentiment and the panels. To jazz it up, I added the ribbon & butterflies.

Thanks for visiting!

Supplies used:
Stamps: Vintage Verses
Paper: Summer Starfruit, Poppy Parade (ret), Brights Paper Stacks, Birds of a Feather DSP
Ink: Basic Grey
Tools: Labels Framelits
Accessories: Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Stitched Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals


  1. Such a tough colour combo to work with, but you rocked it! Nicely done with the strips of designer paper :)

    1. Thanks!! It was a challenge lol I figured the DSP would be the easiest way to display all the colours without overwhelming the card... it turned out ok :) maybe a different sentiment would have worked better... food for thought for me :)Ps-really liking the poppy parade paper here!

  2. This is a beautiful and striking card! Love the butterflies and the framed sentiment. Thanks for joining us at colourQ!
