Gallon, Quart, Pint Challenge

There was one challenge over at Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-Faire that really caught my attention. I'm aware of the gallon:quart:pint color theory, but I don't usually make a deliberate point of using it. So this challenge was really a good brain builder!

So the idea is to pick three colors; one color is used the most, the other is used next, and the last color is used the least.

I was also inspired by this color scheme and sketch provided in the first challenge of the day:

I used the bold teal, deep yellow, and pale green. Pattern papers are from Studio Calico "Sundrifter". I used Hero Arts inks in "Butter Bar" and "Tide Pool". The stamps and dies are Papertrey Ink "Bubble Talk".

Gallon = Pale avocado green. Quart = Dark teal.  Pint = Dark yellow

I think my craft area has gotten enough use for one day. Time to enjoy the rest of the beautiful evening :)

  1. Oh! I just love this! Perfect use of this color theory and stamps. :)

  2. Nice birthday cards!! Love how you used the different colors. You could make tons of these and use up lots of papers!! That second card is FAB - love the colors and design!!

  3. Ooooooh, I love this one to! Great colors and you did a great job with the challenge!

  4. I think this card perfectly fits the GQP rule. Add to it the fun and oh-so-trendy papers and stamps, and the literal "flow" and it's an exemplary design.
