hello in color swatches

hello, hey there
ColourQ Challenge #243 was initially tough for me with the array of colours in the palette but when I saw this striped pattern paper in my leftover basket, it screamed to be used for this challenge!

the centre piece with the 'hello' die-cut layers was inspired by the card in Muse Challenge #69 (which timeline for submission I missed)

the 'hello' was die-cut using Paper Smooches - Quote Tag die-cut set, whilst the 'hey there' sentiment is a stamp from Paper Smooches - Sentiment Sampler set

a close-up of the centre-piece will show the slightly glossy finish to the 'hello' die-cut - with the help of Ranger's Glossy Accents - I also went over the 'hey there' phrase with a silver glitter pen for some subtle shine
