Pretty Painted Petals


Greetings, Stampers! Yay for Sunday and for a new challenge from The Paper Players! This week Joanne is our hostess and she has a color challenge for us. I love the delicious sorbet hues! 


These colors are so, so pretty together and I love them stamped with the gorgeous Painted Petals Stamp Set. After making this card I asked myself why I don't use this set more often. I stamped some of the images with the ink full strength, and some "second generation". I love that the images look great perfectly lined up or not, though lining things up is easy with this photopolymer set.


I'm also playing along with Lesley's sketch at The Challenge. I used a little scrap of glimmer paper for the banner element in the sketch, and I love the little bit of sparkle it adds.

This card is so, so pretty Sandy - I love that delicate tumble of soft flowers, so pretty in these colours. The black DSP panel and glimmer banner really take this card up a notch though - just stunning! Thanks for rocking my colour challenge this week!
