Painted Thanks, CMCC70


Hi, friends! It is the first Monday of the month, so that means it's time for a monochromatic challenge at Colour Me! Today we are featuring Crisp Cantaloupe, a color that will soon be retiring and I will miss it so! 


I really love these sketchy images from the Painted Flowers stamp set. It's a three-step set, so I stamped the first layer in Crisp Cantaloupe, the second in Calypso Coral that was stamped off once, and the outlines in black. I thought the sentiment  from the Super Script 2 set worked nicely with them. There's no die for these sentiments yet, so I had to cut it out by hand. It wasn't as hard as you might think! 


I'm also playing along with the Monday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp, which is "Don't Abandon the Coral". 


Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Painted Flowers, Super Script 2 (Altenew)
Card Stock: Crisp Cantaloupe (SU), Solar White (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Words of Love (Carta Bella)
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral (SU), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories: Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp)

Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll play along with us this week at Colour Me, and please visit the rest of the Design Team, too!
