SUO120 One Layer - Favorite Team Colors :-)

Hi Stampers!   

It’s time for the new SUO120 “Team Colors” Challenge and I chose to highlight my husband’s favorite football team, The Baltimore Raven's  colors- purple and black!    He also loves the Baltimore Orioles but since my last card had Black and Calypso Coral (somewhat of an orange color), I thought the Black and Purple would be a better combination :-)    And oops!!- I just realized that I used the same stamp sets as our last challenge- goes to show that our stamps are quite versatile (or I am having a “Senior” moment- lol!! :-))

I also decided to incorporate the Splitcoaststampers Free For All F4A267 Flower Power Challenge (see details here and gallery here)  and the CAS316 No Patterned Paper Challenge (see details here and gallery here).   

 ***UPDATE*** We are experiencing technical difficulties at the SUO Challenges website and are working on resolving the problem :-)   Will post the link for the Challenge site as soon as it is corrected..******  

I hope you will find the time to check out all of the challenge sites and create your own Stampin’ Up! “Favorite Team Colors” project!!

To create this card:
On Natural White cardstock, stamp the flower from Choose Happiness with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink on the central left hand side of the cardstock, re-ink the stamp and stamp off the upper right hand side of the cardstock.
Stamp another flower onto a piece of scrap paper to create a mask, mask the first flower in the center, re-ink the flower stamp and stamp another flower onto the card.  
Ink the leaf image using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, mask the flowers and stamp the leaf stems near the stamped flowers.
Mask the flower once more at the bottom of the card front and ink the border stamp using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp repeatedly at the bottom. 
Using an AquaPainter™ with Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink, watercolor the flowers and allow a wash of color to cover the card in certain areas.
Color the leaves using a Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write marker and watercolor a bit of the Smoky Slate Classic Ink as well.
Stamp the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Smoky Slate Classic Ink and stamp onto the card front.
Stamp the sentiment using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink to finish off the panel.
Trim the card front and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Basic Black card base to finish off the card.  FYI- Originally I tried to create this card on one layer only but since it had so much water with the technique, I had to layer onto a few "frames" to stabilize the card front...Not sure how others are able to use just one layer, I will have to find out their secret  :-)  
 Stamp Sets:  Choose Happiness, Trust God, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink; Elegant Eggplant, Smoky Slate; Stampin’ Write Smoky Slate Marker
Paper/Cardstock: Naturals White, Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories: AquaPainter™

Thanks again for taking the time to visit – I hope that you will create your own Stampin’ Up! Only project and play along with our “Team Colors” challenge!
