Trust God- A Monochromatic Color, Sketch and Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

Hi Friends!

I had a chance to spend some time stamping this morning and decided to create a card using the Pals Paper Arts PPA292 Sketch Challenge along with the Papercraft Crew PCCC186 Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge (Flowers, Feminine and Embossing Folder) and the monochromatic Watercooler WWC59 Color Challenge (although I am too late to link to the challenge).

If you have not had a chance to visit the above galleries yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful Design Team samples and inspiration from all!

To create this card:

To create the central upper background panel, ink the Timeless Texture stamps using Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow and Cucumber Crush Classic Ink.

Ink the Watercolor Wash background stamp using Wild Wasabi Classic Ink, brayer the ink over the background stamp and transfer the ink from the brayer to the background panel.

Trim the panel, use the retired Distressing Tool to distress the edges, mount onto a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock, trim and mount onto Mossy Meadow cardstock and distress the edges again using the Distressing Tool.

Mount a piece of Whisper White cardstock (approx.4” x 3”) onto a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock and add a distressed/ embossed piece of retired Wild Wasabi Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the lower part of the Mint Macaron card front (embossed with the Boho Chic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).

Add a ½ White Lace Paper Doily and a strip of Mint Macaron mounted onto Mossy Meadow cardstock (embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).

Cut a strip from the Timeless Textures stamped panel (created in the first step) and create the banner using the Hexagon Punch.

Ink the sentiment from Trust God, flowers from Petite Petals and butterflies from Papillon Potpourri using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.

Use the Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch out the butterflies, fussy-cut the flowers and use the Tags and Labels Framelits™ to cut out the sentiment (also cut a label from Mossy Meadow cardstock).

Cut the Mossy Meadow label in half and mount behind the sentiment.
Watercolor the center of the flowers with Wild Wasabi Classic Ink and apply a Mint Macaron wash to the flower petals and butterflies.

Add the sentiment to the card front, adhere the flowers and butterflies (along with leaves created from the Bird Builder Punch and Cucumber Crush cardstock).

Add Pearls to the center of the butterflies and the upper left and lower right hand corners to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Trust God, Papillon Potpourri, Petite Petals, Timeless Textures, Watercolor Wash

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Cucumber Crush, Mossy Meadow, Mint Macaron, Wild Wasabi

Paper: Whisper White, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow
