Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #497 Falling Flowers

Welcome to all!  It's the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we are using Real Red, Lemon Lime Twist, and Garden Green.

I often start a color challenge by looking at the designer series paper choices available with the colors needed.  That's the direction I headed this time.

CCMC#497 Falling Flowers Luv 2 Create

I like my card.  It is brighter than my usual.  That's why I love these color challenges.  They make me stretch!

The base of this card is Thick Whisper White.  Cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score at 4 1/4, and fold.  It's important to score this thicker card stock.  The fold is cleaner that way.

The Garden Green paper witht he hearts is from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.  Cut it to 4 x 5 1/4.

The other papers are from the Tutti Frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  I absolutely love this paper!  If you are not wild about fruits, just look at the backs of the paper!  Love it!  The Real Red paper measures 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.  The Lemon Lime Twist paper is cut to 3 x 4 1/4.  The red paper is slanted a little.  The others are straight.

I used the Stamperatus to stamp the sentiment.  It's from the Watercolor Words stamp set.  Stamp in Archival Black.  I'm so glad I did use the Stamperatus.  I would have ruined my paper.  I did have to stamp more than one time.

CCMC #497 close up

The flower parts are stamped on Watercolor Paper in Archival Black.  Use the color in the lid of the stamp pad and the Aqua Painter.  Use  Real Red, Garden Green, and Lemon Lime Twist ink pads.  To get the darker color I did have to let it dry and add more layers.  Cut using the May Flowers Framelits.  Use snail and dimensionals to adhere.

The sentiment inside is also from Watercolor Words.  Add a sprig from Falling Flowers.
