Paper Players 481 is a Color Challenge
Color challenges are fun, and sometimes challenging! This one, however, was simple for me. I’d previously earned the punch for these fabulous flowers, and I recently earned the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set. I wanted to use the pair ASAP, and this challenge seemed to be a perfect match!
Here’s the challenge banner:
Here’s my card:
Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, and Coastal Cabana is such a calming color combination. Therefore, I wanted to keep the card clean to highlight just the colors.
I took layout inspiration from the current Fusion challenge, but made some adjustments. I think I am going to have to use the Thoughtful Blooms set to create a card without adjusting the layout and using the posted color scheme.
In order to get the branches and leaves I wanted, I used both the branches with leaves and the leaf trio stamps. I stamped all of these leaves and branches using Coastal Cabana. After stamping going up the left side, I stamped some leaves behind where the sentiment square would be placed.
I popped each of the seven flowers on dimensionals. Then I put some colored pearls on the center of each. At that point, I thought that I really needed something else, some sparkle. However, I didn’t want to clutter up the clean card. Wink of Stella to the rescue. It’s so difficult take a photo of the Wink of Stella, but I think you can see the sparkles on the flowers in the picture below:
Thank you so very much for stopping by my blog today. I appreciate your the time you take to read, and comment, on my blog.
Have a Peachy Day!
