A Rainbow of Colour

Lately my eye has been turning towards bright and bold colours. So when I came across BoBunny's Double Dot Designs paper pad, I just had to grab it.

And when I think about using a whole rainbow of colour, I know that I'm going to place them on a neutral background; Black, white or kraft. It may be the heaviest visually of the three but my preference has to be black. The colours come alive more and well it just has that more perfectly graphic feel to it.

I still managed to work in some kraft card on the first one. Personally, though, I prefer unadulterated black.

Doesn't all that colour just make you happy? It's certainly joyful to see it spread all over my crafting table when I'm playing around putting cards together.

Definitely a couple of happy colourful cards there! Love them. So impressed with how consistent you are with your cards Paul. They just keep coming and at such a high standard. Great to see.

Two terrific cards! Nice, bright dotty papers. Like both designs, particularly the triangles. :)

It does indeed make me happy! And I agree about the black making it really pop. You have cut and glued those triangles very neatly, I have to say!

And you're absolutely right!
