Papertrey Ink 9th Anniversary - Colour Pop Fortune Teller Challenge

Good Morning! and Happy Valentine's Day. I have another card for one of Papertrey Ink's 9th Anniversary challenges - to use a Fortune Teller to decide your colour scheme. This was a fun challenge, haven't used one of those little paper games since I was a child. I chose to use two sets of colours - with the numbers 3 and 3, I got Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest and Pure Poppy, when I used 2 and 3, I got Simply Chartreuse and Orange Zest and Pure Poppy again. This colour combo said flowers to me, so this is what I came up with. I did not have Simply Chartreuse ink so used an ink from my stash that was the closest I could get to it.

I ended up having to add a little bit of blue to my background since when I was doing my ink smooshing with green I wasn't careful enough and you could see the lines created by my ink pad. The blue ink didn't cover it but at least it is not as noticable. I stamped the images with Mini Blooms and added a bit of colour with Prismacolour pencils.

Stamps - Mini Blooms, Stylish Sentiments: Birthday (PTI)
Dies - Double Ended Banners, Mini Blooms (PTI), Stitched Rectangles (Lil Inkers)
Paper - Stampers Select White (PTI)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Tulip, Orange, Sunflower, Sky (CTMH), Prismacolour pencils


  1. this is really beautiful. I love the smooshing effect with these flowers!

  2. Simply lovely, Connie! Those darn ink pads....don't you hate it when that happens?! It happens here quite frequently, I'm afraid. It looks like you recovered quite well because I can't tell there was an "incident". :) Love your clean layout and that wee little bunch of flowers is so sweet! Hope you are doing well. So glad I saw this beauty today! :)


Thanks so much for your kind comments, they always make my day.
