Because I Care APP2

Found another challenge I couldn't resist. And, I tried to post this card this morning but Blogger was not cooperating. and it was my only chance today until now!! Long day, ugly baseball game. A loss on the road sure makes it a LONG trip home!!

Anyway, the challenge was a color one, and the picture was just too pretty not to play along!! And the colors were perfect for a stamp set that I hadn't tried yet. Here is the color challenge from Always Playing with Paper.


Pacific Point, Old Olive & Bashful Blue, perfect for a hydrangea!! Well, at least I think, I've never grown one but I've seen lots of them colored in blue shades!! The stamp set is Because I Care, an awesome Level 1 set from the new catalog. Love it!



Card base is Pacific Point with a Square Lattice textured background of Bashful Blue. The Top Note was cut from Naturals White cardstock, then stamped with the hydrangea image in Jet Black Stazon. I colored the flower with classic ink & a blender pen, first going over most all of it with bashful. I came back over to accent with Pacific Point for shading. Finally I used my white gel pen in the very centers. The leaves/stem are Old Olive. Edges of the Top Note are sponged with Bashful Blue. Gold brads were added at the top 3 points, and the saying at the bottom. Quick and easy!

Jennifer, this is so pretty. I love the fact that you stamped the hydrangea on the top note die. The background in the square lattice works so beautifully and really echoes the shape of the individual flowers on the head of the hydrangea.
Thank you so much for joining the Paper Players this week.
