With a couple of weeks off from my “9 to 5” I was glad to have a bit more time to get to stamping and crafting! So while I was off I decided to participate in the Paper Craft Crew Challenge (PCC363). Here’s the sketch for this challenge…
As soon as I saw this sketch I knew that I wanted to do some watercolouring, the question was what colours was I going to use for the project. I went back and forth on a couple of different colour combinations, but in the end I went with my initial thought which was to use Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay.
I used Bermuda Bay cardstock for the card base and Granny Apple Green cardstock for the card mat. For the card front I used Watercolour Paper so that I could use my Aqua Painter to create a nice watercolour background using Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay ink.
I then created some layers using Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Very Vanilla cardstock. For the images and phrase I used the First Frost cling stamp set. I used Bermuda Bay ink to stamp the phrase and two flowers as well as some leaves to create a tone on tone effect on the Bermuda Bay oval. The buds were stamped with Granny Apple Green ink and the ovals were cut using the Stitched Shapes dies.
I really like how this card turned out and think it will be a great card for a wedding or engagement. Here’s the link to check out the other projects for this Paper Craft Crew Challenge… papercraftcrew.com/pcc363.
