Today I am the hostess for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge! The colors are beautiful together yet I struggled with finding my Stampin’ Mojo. As the hostess, I wanted my project to be extra special. I am sure the pressure I put on myself didn’t help. Here are the color’s for this week’s challenge:
I was drawn to use the Circle of Spring OR Wondrous Wreath stamp set. After trying both sets, Wondrous Wreath won the starring role. I think the colors look striking against the Whisper White background.
I showed it to my husband and he said, “Why did you use a Christmas wreath?” My heart sank but the more I looked at my card the more it made me smile. So I went with the card anyway.
The wreath is stamped using Old Olive ink. The first stamp was stamped off once before being stamped onto the card stock. The second stamp was “full strength” ink. I chose to use the flowers from the Circle of Spring stamp set. The Wondrous Wreath Framelits were essential in creating the look. [TIP: When using the Wondrous Wreath Framelits, cut out the center first then stamp the wreath.]
The Dapper Denim flourish border from the Flourish Thinlits provides lacy detail to frame the wreath. A bit of Linen Thread and Regal Enamel Dots provide the finishing touches.
Although I struggled to get going, I am happy with my project. I hope you are inspired to play along this week. Please join us at www.palspaperarts.com
