What a sweet Color Challenge over at the Global Design Project!  Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate are so pretty together… Spring is in the air.

Colour Challenge (1)

Here’s a quick “can do” for you:

  • The Basic Gray card base is A-2 – 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″;
  • The Whisper White second layer is 4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″,
  • The Daffodil Delight polka dot layer is 2 1/2″ X 4 1/8″,
  • The scalloped edgelit is cropped using Smoky Slate card stock and I cut it just enough to tuck behind the patterned paper.
  • To get those little blooms into the right spot, I measured up 2 1/2″ from the base of my Whisper White layer and knowing that each “scallop” is one inch wide, I made sure the dots were  an inch apart starting from the center out.
  • Stamp the center flower stem first, then stamp a stem on each side.  Use your pencil marks as a guide and… the stamp is photopolymer, so you’ll see your marks easily.
  • Add your flower, which I stamped with Daffodil Delight ink.
  • A few Whisper White Candy Dots and some Basic Gray Baker’s Twine from a past Paper Pumpkin Kit is all the embellishment needed.
