Free 4 All....thanks


Hello Peeps! Hope you all are having a great day!

I am popping in her to share a quick little card I made this morning for the Free 4 All Challenge on Splitcoaststampers today. The challenge is called opposite attracts, Using the color wheel, create something with colors on opposite sides. I choose to use red and green.

I wanted to color some flowers, no big surprise there huh? I actually used Poppy Parade, my favorite red to use for water coloring lately. This color does so well with water coloring, I love how it looks kinda peachy. I used the flowers from the Stampin' Up Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set. I don't know why I didn't use one of my new sets, but oh well, these flowers are pretty!! I stamped them with black stazon onto some scraps of watercolor paper I have. I colored and then cut them out. I used an oval nestie to mount these to. I sponged the oval with the die still in place to create a bit of a frame. I stamped the stems directly on the oval and colored with some old olive ink. I added the flowers to the oval with some foam tape and then added a bow of poppy parade ribbon. The little "thanks" tag comes from the Herb Expressions stamp set and I just inked up the one word and stamped onto white and hand cut the little tag.

The base of the card is white and the next layer is also white that was embossed with the square lattice EF. I added to strips of DSP, of Poppy Parade and Old Olive. I finished off with three silver pearls. I was worried with the red and green that this would have a bit of a Christmas feel but have been assured it doesn't! :)  

Well, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
