Last week’s Team Color Challenge set by Julie Wade – or WWWU for short – was for Crisp Canteloupe, Calypso Coral, Primrose Petals and Gumball Green.
Now this combination presented an enormous challenge for me – but the end result was much better than expected….. though a version did get binned!!
I had just found out that a very close family friend had unexpectedly spent a week in hospital – and that she had just come home – so I needed to get a card off in the post tout suite. So a quick combination of 2 of my card-making challenges that day – and here you have it! And funnily enough – when I finished – I realised that she loves the coral/pinky end of the colour spectrum – so it was perfect for her…. thank you again Julie!
All of the stamped images are from the new Happy Watercolor stamp set… I just strategically placed the flower so that the flower spray looked like leaves…..
The poppy was stamped three times using black Staz On, and coloured in using Primrose Petals ink & the “splat…” stamp from the Happy Watercolor set… Then 1 was cut out whole and the other 2 as selective petals … and finally all layered up on top of each other. Then I just added a small amount of black using my blender pen to the centre of the flower for extra definition….
And so what of the version that got binned…… I had used the multi dots image that is also in the Happy Watercolor stamp set for the background/card base… Well it would have been perfect for someone with chicken pox!! But not for this ailment!!!
