Lily Pad Palette Challenge

I'm so exited about the Lily Pad Palette Challenge this month. These are SO my colours.

In fact when I finally sat down to do it, and got out my folder with turquoise etc, I had to laugh  . . . . I could make at least 10 cards just with the unfinished and leftover bits and pieces that were lying about!

So now I'm on a roll  . . .

I used a piece of card that I had already brayered. Stamped the leaf with Versafine sepia (it appears darker in the photo), and highlighted the tops with white gel pen. The card is actually pale lime green and not so yellow in real. Wanted to keep this one CAS.

For No. 2 I used the inked and stamped page from a book. Got perfect pearls too so a lovely glimmer to it. Here I was following the sketch from Hero Arts National Scrapbook Day.

For my 3rd card I continued with the HA sketch using a scrap of card card with alcohol inks, and pre-inked dots and scripted background.


  1. Your cards are beautiful!

  2. These are gorgeous and I love that you enjoyed using the colors. Thank you for participating with The Color Thrown Down challenge at Lily Pad. :)

  3. Really wonderful cards, Janet! Great job combining the Lily Pad challenge colors with the HA sketch. I love all the layered stamping, especially the Garden Bouquet stamped on text, gorgeous!

  4. I guess you DO like these colors! I do, too. I'm so glad that you were inspired by them to make these lovely cards, Janet - hope you'll play again with us often at Lily Pad Cards! My fave is the one with the cute birds - they are old faves of mine :)

  5. You are going to town here! I think you should decorate your bathroom with this color palette - you really have a GREAT feel for it!
