Paper Pals PPA297 – A Color Challenge from Jackie Diediker

Paper Pals Challenge PPA297- A color Challenge from Jackie Diediker

Hi again, wow I didn't realize there was so many craft showcases & challenges out there!
It's really amazing!

I have found another bunch of talented people sharing gorgeous creations and challenges. This group are called Paper Pals 


      Pals Paper Arts        

This weeks color challenge is from  Jackie Diediker 
   

This bunch of colors is not a grouping I would normally put together of my own accord, so this really was a challenge! On their own they are gorgeous, but I wasn't sure how I was going to really make them work together.
 I thunk and thunk and then I thunk some more....
&
This is what I came up with.
I am really pleased with it too!

'Little Moments'


#Watercolorwings #Timelesstextures #KOCreations #PPA297


How I made 'Little Moments'

  • I sponged Daffodil Delight onto Whisper White cardstock  12cm x 9cm very lightly & then sponged whisper white over the top to whiten some patches. I then used a mask and sponged again with Daffodil Delight. To finish I grabbed my flourish from the Timeless Textures stamp set and stamped off then on the Daffodil Delight with Wisteria Wonder all around the edges in a random pattern.
  • The on another piece of Whisper White 16.5 cm x 11.5cm, I used the same flourish with Daffodil Delight and the same technique...stamping off onto a scrap page then onto my background in a random manner.
  • I lightly sponged a paper doily with Pool Party and cut it in half. 
  • Using the large butterfly from Watercolor Wings I stamped onto whisper white with Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder.
  • I cut a piece Wisteria Wonder cardstock 12.2cm x 9.2cm and placed the layered stamping cardstock onto it.
  • Placing the cut doily onto each corner, I used the snail adhesive to hold it in place.
  • I grabbed a leftover piece of vellum and stamped the gorgeous sentiment on to it and cut to fit the top of the card front. I stuck the vellum by using the snail adhesive on the very edge.
  • I then placed the butterfly over the top and embellished it with lovely flower. I added small Rhinestone Basic Jewels randomly over the rest of the card front.
  • I finished the whole card by adding Wisteria Wonder as the card base and by carrying some of the Daffodil Delight flourish to the inside of my card.
