Stampin’ Up! Remarkable You

Hey Hey!  Time for another Blog Hop.  Today I’m finally getting back into my own team blog hops.  This week is a Colour Challenge.

I did make a little boo boo and called the darker grey Going Gray, but it is in fact Basic Gray.  And goodness me – I didn’t even centre my colour swatch graphic!

team-hop-110I’m sure you’ll be able to over look my mistakes, unless you’re the OCD kind a person. Is it bothering you now?  It’s bothering me!  Let’s move onto the card shall we?

Stampin' Up! Remarkable You

Okay… onto how I created the card.  I first stamped the flowers (Lily? I don’t know) in Black Stazon, and watercoloured with Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate and BASIC GRAY.   Then I restamped the flowers onto regular printer paper, cut them out, painted on some 2 Way Glue Pen and allowed it to go tacky.  You know what that is right?  Masking!!  I was able to cover my flowers with the masks and then sponge on some Crushed Curry.  The colour is a lot deeper and richer in real life.

I then took a strip of Basic Gray from the Paper Stack and stuck it behind the water colour paper so that it was the same width as the card base.  I’ve tied some Thick Bakers Twine around the card and made a pretty bow.  Did you notice I also tied the bow tails into knots?  It adds a little something extra without actually adding the extra, if you know what I mean.

I then mounted the whole panel with Dimensionals onto Crushed Curry card base, and added the sentiment.  Voila!  Done.  I think this card would also be a suitable Sympathy Card.

  1. Love your card Alisa! This flower is called a Calli lily (kahllah ). My daughter gave me one for Mother’s Day a couple of years ago. They are very lovely and don’t get too smelly like regular lillies. 🙂
