Hi, welcome to the Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop day! Thanks so much for hopping with us this month. The theme for our August 2021 Blog Hop is a Colour Challenge. We were challenged to create a card using Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. We are also permitted to use Basic White, Basic Black and/or Very Vanilla.
Here’s the Challenge…
I actually found this to be a little extra challenging. I really like all the colours chosen. They all work so well together but they are a little more subtle than the colours I usually choose.
To start, I selected the Delicate Dahlias stamp set for my project. This is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that could be yours for free with a qualifying order. The stamp set is a fun two-step stamp set which is fabulous. For my card, I chose to stick with the line art images only.
I started by stamping the large dahlia, and the leaves (three times) on a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper with Versamark Ink. I then heat embossed the images with White Embossing Powder. The greeting was also stamped in Versamark on a small piece of Soft Succulent cardstock and heat embossed this with the White Embossing Powder.
Next up, I added clean water to the images and then dropped in my colour. I used Pale Papaya to colour the dahlia. It looks so pretty. For the leaves, I added a wash of the Soft Succulent ink. I blotted some of the ink off and then added just a little of the Evening Evergreen to the lower parts of the leaves. When it was dry, I fussy cut the images out with Paper Snips.
The card base was made with the Basic White Thick cardstock. I covered the entire front with a panel of Soft Succulent patterned paper from the 2021-2023 In Colour 6×6 Designer Series Paper pack. I placed a panel of Basic White cardstock in the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine before adding it to the centre of my card base.
The next step was to assemble the card. I adhered the leaves with Seal but decided to pop up the Dahlia with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment strip was popped up too. The final touch was to add a few Evening Evergreen rhinestones from the 2021-2023 In Colour Jewels pack.
Here’s the card…
I’m actually really happy with how this card turned out. I loved playing with painting my images too. It was so fun!
Let’s continue on the hop…
