It’s Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. We’re doing a color challenge this week with TWO of the new In Colors!
Here’s what I came up with using a new stamp set, You’re Priceless! I love the gemstones in it and the fun greetings! Watercolor wash backgrounds are SO popular right now, so I decided to use the Fresh Fig and Powder Pink inks in my background for a soft look under my gems.
Here are the details:
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Fresh Fig cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, I used an AquaPainter and the Fresh Fig and Powder Pink Ink Pads with lots of water to scribble the “washed” colors. Let dry.
- Stamp over the wash with the gemstones in Powder Pink and Fresh Fig inks at the top and bottom diagonally.
- A 1/2 x 4 piece of Night of Navy cardstock was cut with flag ends and placed across the front, then a 1/4 x 4 piece of Powder Pink cardstock across the center to soften it.
- You’re Brilliant was stamped with Night of Navy ink.
- The diamond outline was cut from Dazzing Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the detail cut from Silver Glimmer Paper with the Eclectic Layers Thinits. It is popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A few Glimmer Dots are randomly placed on the background.
