SUO126 Timeless Elegance Anniversary- Two Versions :-)

Hi Stampers!   

It’s time for the new SUO126 "Designer Paper” Challenge!  

I decided to use the beautiful Timeless Elegance Designer Paper (DSP) – this paper is gorgeous on its own or you can add color (as I did in my second sample).

 I also incorporated the FabFri67 Color Challenge (all of the new In-Colors and I used all of the colors in my card) along with the FM215 Friday Mashup! "It's All Aboutg Three" Challenge (I have three vertical panels as well as three main roses :-)). 

I hope you will find the time to check out all the rest of our Design Team ideas at SUO Challenges as well as those at the other two challenge sites- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create the Basic Black and Vanilla version of the card:
Original Black and Vanilla version :-)
Cut the Timeless Elegance DSP into three panels and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.
Trim a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and adhere to the Basic Black card base.
Add the three vertical panels of layered DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 
Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, trim and create the banner points with the Banner Punch.
Adhere a strip of Basic Black cardstock across the vertical panel and add the sentiment.
Use the Bow Builder Punch to create the Basic Black bow and add the Antique Brad to the center (I cut off the tails on the brad and adhered directly to the center of the bow).
Mount the bow to the card front to finish off the card.
Even though I loved the look of the Black and Vanilla only, I felt that I wanted to add color, so I decided to color in the images :-)

To create the “watercolor” version of the card:

Repeat the same steps as above.
Using an AquaPainter™, apply Watermelon Wonder to the large roses, Mint Macaron along with Cucumber Crush to the leaves, Delightful Dijon to the flower centers and Tip Top Taupe to the background.

So, which one do you prefer- the “watercolored” version or the original?  I am having a tough time deciding- IRL, the colored version seems a bit "richer" in appearance and the roses have a velvety look to them (remember not to use too much water) :-)
Stamp Sets:  Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon  Wonder
Paper/Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Timeless Elegance DSP

Your watercolored card is simply gorgeous! Any issues with watercoloring DSP? Thanks for sharing with us at the Friday Mashup.

Both cards are beautiful, though I prefer the watercolored one- you really did a fabulous job on that!

Julie - as always, this is stunning! Great use of this paper and color challenge. What a wonderful transformation you gave to that paper! Thanks for playing along with this week's FabFriday Color Challenge.

Wowzers! Looking at it just now, Julie, I could hardly believe that it's the same paper! What an amazing card, it's absolutely gorgeous and so artistic. I'm so glad you played along with us at Fab Friday!

I love the water colored dsp. I'm old enough that we had only black and white tvs and dark wallpaper on the wall. That must be why I love color on cards.

Thanks Linda! Yes, I remember those B/W TV days all too well :-) Thanks again for taking the time to comment- hugs, my friend!!
