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!
