It's time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge! This week it's color. I also used the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #89 to help me create my card.
I keep going back to my love of watercoloring! I fussy cut the flower out....I know, I know, it has a coordinating punch, but I like the way you can get closer to the edge by fussy cutting. I stamped some textures onto the circle and then used my auquapainter to "bleed" the color out a bit.
I finished up the flower and leaves by adding some wink of stella (see picture below).
I used the plenty of petals EF to make this wonderful textured background. I also added a little interest to the smokey slate strip by stamping the little cluster of flowers from Birthday Blossoms in Smokey Slate ink. I also stamped the same flowers in the corners of the Chocolate Chip card base. It's very subtle.
I finished this one off with a bit of vanilla satin ribbon and also some linen thread.
I hope you can join us in the challenge this week!
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
