Color Challenge....Just for you
Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!
Today I am sharing a card I made with the color challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers. The colors this week are, pear pizazz, so saffron, and pretty in pink.
I decided to do some water coloring for this card, I had just replenished my stock of watercolor paper, I had been out for a few days, and we just can't have that, because I LOVE to water color.
I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin' Up Growing Green stamp set with black stazon onto the water color paper. I colored it in with my aqua painter and pear pizazz ink, darkening the color at the base of each leaf. I then stamped two of the flowers from the same set onto more watercolor paper and colored these with pretty in pink and so saffron. I did add a bit of regal rose to darken the pink flower some. I used an bit of pear for the center of the so saffron flower. The flowers are added to the base of the leaf branch with some dimensionals.
I made the base of this card with pear pizazz card stock, it is a 5 inch square. The DSP on here comes from the greenhouse gala and the play date paper packs. I messed around with the bow for a long time, trying to get it where it didn't intrude onto the image piece so much, and finally decided on this half bow with long tails because the two sided bow just was to big. I added some basic pearls in the corners and called it done.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
