Free Colour Palette Resources

Hi everyone! I have a treat for you today.

It's a Colour Resources Pack. It's FREE to download. And it's a complete collection of essential colour design tools for you to print & which you will find very helpful in your Pink Petticoat card making.

Your Colour Resources Pack includes ...
Colour Palette
{A4 sheet}
A quick at-a-glance guide to all the colours in the main Pink Petticoat Colour Palette.

Solid Background Papers
{38 x A4 sheets}
38 solid background papers - one for every colour in the main Pink Petticoat Colour Palette.

Colour Sampler
{4 x A4 sheets}
If the Colour Sampler is new to you, it's very simple to make and use ... I punched mine out using a 5cm square punch and popped it onto a book ring. It makes choosing the colour palettes for my cards so much easier.
It is my most-used colour tool : )

All the files included in this download are exactly the same as any item you have bought from The Pink Petticoat Portfolio.
- high-resolution 300 dpi
- file type: .tif
- print as individual A4 sheets.
So you can open and print them in exactly the same way.

And they download in the same way too - as a .zip file. So you can use your favourite Zip File Program, such as WinZip, to download and unzip them.

If you'd like to get creative with them straight away, I've designed a set of cards to show you how beautifully the colours work together. You can make with them as soon as you've downloaded your Pack, along with your favourite Pink Petticoat Sentiments. (I chose the 'Thank You Sentiments' and used just the printed Colour Sampler to punch out my butterflies.)

You will need ...
A6 White Card Blank
Sentiment printed onto the same White card
Punched Butterflies
Small Pearls (optional)

1. Cut around your sentiment so it measures 1cm less in both width and height than your card base. Stitch on all four edges in a freestyle design (optional), and tie your Linen Twine around it and into a bow.

2. Secure your sentiment centrally to your card base using 3D foam pads to give it depth and dimension leaving a 1cm border around it on all four edges.

3. Punch out your butterflies, and stick them down.

And your card is finished!

Just add little pearls to finish if you'd like : ) Like the have here ...

The colours (from the bottom) ...
Just Walnut, Soft Truffle & Cafe Creme
Wild Primrose, Goldenrod & Dainty Daffodil

Boutique Blue, Blue Quartz & Pebble Lagoon
Old Olive, Crushed Pistachio & Fresh Celery

Dusted Lavender, Lilac Bloom & Lovely Lilac
Summer Orchid, Sweet Bohemia & Cinder Rose
Perfect Papaya, Totally Tangerine & Sweet Apricot

Enjoy : )
