Bright Sweet Floral- A Color and Photo Inspiration Challenge :-)



Hi Again Stampers!

I decided to get out of my “comfort zone” and create a very bright, summery card using the Pals Paper Arts PPA251 Color Challenge along with the Stampin’Celebration SC104 Inspiration Photo and the Splitcoaststampers WT531 “May Flowers” Challenge (see details here and gallery here). 

Again, I hope you have the time to stop by the above sites to check out the wonderful inspiration from the Design Teams as well as the other fabulous gallery entries!

To create this card:

Ink the retired background stamp, Sweet Floral with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp the image onto a piece of Watercolor Paper.

Using Stampin’ Write Markers color the image using Tempting Turquoise for the background, Melon Mambo for the flowers and Daffodil Delight along with Tempting Turquoise for the leaves. 

Spritz with a water bottle and allow the colors to run a bit, if necessary, re-apply color when the image is dry and spritz again.    

Ink the retired script stamp from Notable Notions using Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink and stamp onto the background.

Add accents to the flower centers with the White Gel Pen.

Trim the panel, mount onto a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock and trim again.

Stamp the sentiment using Tempting Turquoise onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, punch out with the Word Window Punch, mount onto a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock (punched out with the Modern Label Punch), insert the brads with the retired Antique Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware and add ¼” Stitched Daffodil Delight Grosgrain Ribbon.

Mount the sentiment onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and adhere the ribbon ends to the back of the card panel.

Mount the entire watercolored panel onto a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock and adhere to the Whisper White card base.

Add the Pearls to the corners to finish off the card
