Do you have trouble choosing colors for your creations? If you choose to work with designer paper or printed paper, use the colors that are already there, and remember to NOT ignore the neutral colors. 

   Butterfly Wishes

   Flirty Flamingo A-2
   See A Silhouette DSP 1 1/4 x 5 1/2
   Whisper White 2 1/2 x 5 1/2 + Scraps

   Flirty Flamingo
   Night of Navy
   Real Red
   Crushed Curry


   Butterfly Duet Punch, Basic Pearl Jewels, Glue Dots, Adhesive

To choose my color palette, I begin with the darkest, most dominate color and set it aside for my sentiment. I will then choose two or three more dominate colors to play with.

I used the Flirty Flamingo for my branches with flowers. 

I then stamped and punched out two butterflies: one in Real Red and the other in Crushed Curry. I saw specks of Real Red and wanted to draw those out. So, I added a Real Red butterfly to make that happen. 

The Crushed Curry butterfly was added to give the card some balance. 

I chose the Flirty Flamingo as the card base because although it is found in the designer paper it is not a bold color. 

Lastly, I had to make that gorgeous butterfly shine, so I stamped it with Night of Navy. 

I have never taken an art class or studied colors, but I stamp what I like. Stampin' Up! makes our life easy by matching papers and inks for us.

Thank you for your time. I would love to hear what you think.
