I did this card for Carolyn King's Color Challenge over in the Gina K. Forum(Splitcoast)! She's trying (and succeeding) in getting us all jacked up for Gina's new release tomorrow. Yippee!
The challenge was to use celery and lavender. I forget the official Stampin' Up names, but, let's just say--- I didn't have them! So, I tried to come up with a color that was pretty close! I used the Baskets of Happiness set from Gina K. Designs and just inked up the flower part of the stamp. I stamped my saying in the center of a Nestabilities oval and then stamped my flowers in kind of a frame all around the sentiment. I did use some celery colored chalk to give a little pop of color to my inner part of the oval. The flowers were colored with water color pencils and then, I added some Diamond Stickles to the center of the flowers to give a little sparkle! I layered my base card with a celery green paper and a lavender that had been stamped with lavender ink and a paisley background stamp (retired SU). I matted my oval onto a scallop oval cut out of some textured celery color paper. I also pin pricked the scallops for a little extra something. I added some ribbon, a ribbon slide... and done! WHEW! That sounded a lot more complicated than it actually was!
Here's a close up of all the flowers. LOVE this stamp!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend!!
