I made this card last night for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge this week, then neglected to post it in time. OOPS! Oh well, I can still share here for all of you. I'm in to cards with a Spring feel, even though we've not truly had all that much winter. Guess the drab colors get to a person after a while!
The PPA Challenge was to use Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum and Pear Pizzazz. Here is what I came up with.
The bow looks a little wonky in the scan, it's better in real life. The scanner squishes it though so it doesn't look very good. Card base is Perfect Plum. Background is Whisper White that was two-step stamped in Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz. For the two step, I first stamped the outline image from Flower Fancy full strength: the large flower in Perfect Plum, the small flowers in Baja Breeze and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz. Then I inked the solid (inside) images and stamped them off once before stamping on the card stock. I did not use a stamp-a-ma-jig at all on this one. Love how this set goes together without that extra step!! For a little added color, I spritzed the images as well with the markers in the same colors. I tried to aim them over the images of the same color.
The saying is from the new set in the Occasions Mini, Bring on the Cake. I stamped the saying on Whisper White in Perfect Plum, added a few Baja Breeze spritzed dots and punched with the Wide Oval. I sponged the edge with Perfect Plum then layered onto a Decorative Label of Pear Pizzazz. It seemed to need a little something else, so I layered more Decorative Labels behind in Perfect Plum.
The bow was again made using Mary Browns instructions but I tried layering two colors together. Maybe I should have stuck with one?? But it does look better in real live than in the scan.
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back Thursday and Friday for sure, not sure if I'll make it before that.
