MFT Color Challenge 72 and SSS Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
This challenge was just that - a challenge. I have my card for the MFT Color Challenge 72 and it was super difficult for me this time. But I like that - easy is not always good, ya know? I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.
I had a really hard time capturing the vellum so believe it or not, this is the best I can get. I am in the process of making a light box as this was very frustrating taking this picture!
For this card, I used a piece of 140 lb water color paper and stamped MFT Fancy Flowers in SSS intense black ink. Then I fussy cut the top of the card off so the flowers could pop against a background. I used watercolors to match the colors in the challenge. Honestly, the blue was so dark that it did not look good at all. So, I used a white gel pen and started outlining the stamp with little dots. I really liked the look so I did the same for all 3 flowers. I painted the stems gray and used the same shade for the background paper.
I stamped a sentiment from MFT Polynesian Paradise with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder on a piece of vellum. I then wrapped the vellum around the base of the card. I propped up the whole card with foam tape to give the card some depth.
Off to bed for me, night folks!
