It's Thursday again!! Time for a new challenge from Create with Connie and Mary! This week we have a beautiful color challenge: Lost Lagoon, Sahara Sand and Basic Gray. At first I couldn't think what to do with this combo but then I saw my Hexagon Hive Thinlit Die and started my journey with that (sometimes getting to the finish with a card is really a journey for me, with backtracks and changes of direction, especially with color challenges. How about you?)
I knew early on that I wanted to use the Dictionary stamp on the paper behind the hexagon diecut; I stamped it off once before the final stamping onto the Lost Lagoon cardstock.
Next I diecut the stems and leaves from Basic Gray and, using the Blossom Punch, punched out the two large flowers. The two small flowers were also punched from Sahara Sand with the blossom punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.
The center of the flower was stamped in Basic Gray, colored with Lost Lagoon then added a light dusting of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter adhered with a Two Way Glue Pen.. Pearls embellish the centers of the flowers.
Stamps: Honeycomb Hello, Mixed Bunch (flower center), Dictionary
Ink: Basic Gray; Lost Lagoon Marker
Paper: Lost Lagoon, Basic Gray, Sahara Sand cardstocks
Accessories: Hexagon Hive Thinlit, Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die (stems & leaves), Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Blossoms Flower Punch, Pearls, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Two Way Glue Pen, Dimensionals, Glue Dots.
