Color Happy

I love playing with colors, usually the brighter the better!  Today I have two colorful cards to share for Unity's Friends With Flair!
The first card uses the beautiful feather from July's KOTM Beautiful Inside and Out.  I love that kit!  I embossed the feather onto a rainbow striped paper and fussy cut it.  For the background paper I sprayed some of my Dylusions Sprays randomly and them embossed the sentiment from Unity's Quotes a la Happy.
I mounted them onto a cheerful teal card and done!
 
The next card came as a result of the first.  There was so much beautiful color left on my craft mat after using my Dylusions sprays on the first card that I didn't want to waste it so I spritzed the mat with water and grabbed some scrap watercolor paper that was ruined on one side and soaked up the extra.  I love how it blended so prettily and when it dried I had to figure out which stamp would get the honor of being stamped on it.  Unity's Whitney Girl won out!
 
 The sentiment was a quote that I've been wanting to use for a while and since I don't have it in stamp form I printed it out from my computer and then put vellum over it and traced onto the vellum with a slick writer.  I got the idea for the vellum cloud with sentiment from a fabulous card I saw by Carmen over on Unity's Facebook Show and Tell and I loved it!  You can see Carmen's card here on her blog, Visionary Art by Carmen Alicia.
 The paper and cloud stickers are from Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook collection.
That is all for today folks, my colorful contribution to Friends with Flair!  Out of curiosity, what are your favorite colors/palettes to design with?

great cards
have to soak up that extra ink and eventually you look at the piece of paper and say - that is so pretty and you use it

Love the bight colours on the feather card yet you still managed to keeps some white space. Lovely. Great quote on the second. The girl looks lovely with the excess paint dress. I like blue, but did have a hot pink phase a while ago!
