Lotus Blossom CCMC342

It's time for another challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!  Today we have  an interesting  color combination to use of Basic Black, Hello Honey and Sahara Sand!  I began with pulling out these colors of stamp pads, sheets of cardstock and looking through my Designer Paper!  I didn't find any that combined these colors so I made my own using a black and white design from the Back to Black DSP pack and brayering it with Sahara Sand ink.  Viola!  Just what I needed for this card!

The Lotus was stamped with Hello Honey:  the first stamp full strength, second was stamped off once and the third (the full stamp) was stamped off twice after inking and before stamping to give three different tones of the same color. 

Stamps:  Lotus Blossom (SAB 2015).
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Hello Honey, Sahara Sand
Paper:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Sahara Sand.  Back to Black DSP.
Accessories:  Basic Pearls, Daffodil Blendabilities (darkest tone to color pearls), 1/8" Black Taffeta Ribbon
Tools:  Brayer, Top Note Die, Artisan Label Punch, Project Life Corner Rounder, Big Shot

Here is the Color Challenge from Create with Connie and Mary this week:


We hope you will take the challenge and join us this week by creating a project with these colors!  So many possibilities!  The guidelines are all on the Create with Connie and Mary blog; just make your card and upload it there!  While there check the creations of the other Challenge Team members for inspiring creativity!

Thanks for your visit today!  Wishing you a good day and time to be creative!

Wow! So pretty! I love the idea of taking the dsp and brayering the desired color over it! Fabulous idea!

Brilliant idea to brayer over the designer paper! I need to use my Top Note die again. I forgot how much loveliness it brings to a card.

SOOO clever to brayer the DSP...wouldn't have thought of doing it with another neutral! LOVE the pop of yellow flower! Great job with the color challenge this week!

Gorgeous!! You are so clever, coloring the dsp to make it what you needed! The flower really pops against the neutral colors in this fantastic design!
