Good Friday Morning Peeps!!
I was up early yesterday and feeling so much better and was anxious to create something.
I started looking around for a challenge to participate in and to inspire.
I came across this challenge on Create with Connie and Mary Blog, it is a special two week challenge with a color and sketch challenge in one, you could do the color or the sketch or both.
I decided to try the color challenge, those are the ones I struggle with more.
So the colors to use are basic gray, pumpkin pie, and so saffron and I threw in the neutral of very vanilla.
I started with a base of Basic Gray and then followed that with some very vanilla. I then used the Tulip Frame EF on some more basic gray for the next layer.
I then decided to make a pretty layered flower. I stamped the flower from the Stampin' Up Flower Fest card onto some so saffron card stock with versamark and embossed with my white embossing powder. I then cut out the layers, decreasing one row each time, and layered them together with dimesionals. I used my aqua painter and some pumpkin pie ink to color the flower a bit.
The center is made up of Pumpkin Pie card stock followed by some DS paper from the retired Sweet & Sour Speciality Pack and Very Vanilla card stock. I added some So Saffron scallops made with the Tasteful Trim Die. The sentiment is from the "Curly Cute" stamp set and is stamped with basic gray ink, but looks black. I finished it off with some Pumpkin Pie Satin ribbon and some silver pearls (non SU).
Well that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and
