Paper Artsy Lynne Perrella Pink and Orange Card


This year I aim to enter each and every Paper Artsy challenge.  I find the topics to be quite unique and thought provoking.  For topic #1, Pink & Orange, I decided to play with my new Distress Crayons.  I gessoed a watercolor panel, then scribbled and blended away.  I wasn't quite happy with the result, so I dipped the panel into Distress Inks.


I used this beautiful Lynne Perrella stamp as a focal image, layering with more inky paper, dies, washi & string.  The script is handwritten and the stencil by Carabelle Studio.  I'm happy to be building my stash of birthday cards for this year!

autumn, what a treasure this is! You do pink and orange like none other! It looks fabulous with the contrast of the bold black script (I do so wish I were brave enough to do that and had such gorgeous handwriting!) Clock die cut (beautiful!), tape, chit chat sticker and stamping! Knockout background and spot on design! Love it! And you, girlie! Hugs!

Who would have thought that pink and orange would go together but you have put them together beautifully! I love the LP image - she has a little air of mystery about her... Hugs, Anne xx

So dramatic and vibrant; enough to brighten the day of any lucky recipient. Love the threads artfully arranged to add texture and the pops of black for contrast. Beautiful work. TFS

Hi love how you have used the string in with the different layers. When I try it using string it looks a mess!! Lol. I'm going to try n enter every Paperartsy blog challenge this year too. I have a few distress crayons but not used them much but they look pretty on my craft table lol. Xx

Oh wow! What a wonderful color combo and not something I would have thought of. Bravo for using it so smashingly well and the results are beautiful. Sounds like you have issued yourself a good challenge. I wish you luck on your endeavor. This card is spectacular and that handwriting in the corner makes it even more special. Awesome sauce and wowzers! Hugz to you muffin.
