We spent a long weekend at our place "Up North" (that's Minnesotan for our cabin). I've started to keep a few supplies at the cabin and recently purchased the Stampin' Up kit, Watercolor Wishes so I can keep that up there and have coordinating elements to play with. I also brought a bag full of other supplies to play with (I may need to invest in another Big Shot to keep up there, that stinker is heavy). With my limited supplies, I decided to play along with the color challenge at TGIF Challenges.
I used a sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes kit and the Stampin' Up set Birthday Blossoms. I stamped the small pansy clusters in Pool Party, stamping off for a lighter touch of color. The leaves and large pansies were stamped in Basic Gray ink and I used a watercolor brush to color them in Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight. I did use a little Crushed Curry for the flower centers and brushed on a little Wink of Stella. I fussy cut the leaves and flowers, I do have the pansy punch but neglected to bring it with me. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray and the panel is layered on some Basic Gray card stock. The whole thing is layered on a Pool Party card base.
This card is pretty straight forward in a classic layout. I love that I was able to play with paper while up north.
