This is the #116 Color Palette

Just leaving you with one of my little tricks for colour matching; I like to print the palette out and then try match the colours underneath. If I need to mix paint then I use some recycled clear product packaging and lay it over the top of the colour and then mix the paints in the packaging, that way I can visualise it and the colour close together, and not waste it by continuing to paint it on the paper underneath the printed colour.

Cheers and happy scrapping!
