Happy Thursday everyone! Wow…these weeks really roll around quickly! June is flying by, I guess because I was on vacation for 10 days earlier this month! More of a working vacation vs leisure, though! lol! We purchased a retirement home in Florida and closed on it, then needed to completely decorate and furnish! That has been a major job!
But…today’s Color Challenge is BEAUTIFUL! I frequently use these colors!
Jar of Flowers
Flowers were a perfect choice for these colors…don’t you think?
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Melon Mambo cardstock was embossed with the Old World Paper Embossing Folder, then added on top.
- A 2-3/4 x 5 piece of In Good Taste Designer Paper was added to the front…love that tile print!
- A 1/2 x 4 piece of Mango Melody cardstock was added as an accent down the left side.
- The jar and flowers from Jar of Flowers stamp set were stamped with Memento Black Ink an colored with Light & Dark Mango Melody, Light & Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. Then watercolored with Melon Mambo Marker. The jar was punched with the Jar Punch and the flowers hand-cut. They were added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A 1/8 x 4-1/4 strip of Granny Apple Green across was added across the front.
- It’s Your Day from Mini Mates was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock, then colored with the Blends/Markers and cut with the Tasteful Label Die. it is added on front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Wink of Stella was added to the jar and to the tulip flowers for a little sparkle.
OK…go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary! Some awesome ideas!
