Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #551 Falling Flowers

Hello!  Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #551.  This week we have a color challenge using Fresh Fig, Mossy Meadow, and Petal Pink.


These are lovely colors together!  Did you know that we won't have Fresh Fig around much longer?  Sadly, it retires at the end of May since it is one of the 2017-2019 In Colors.  Here is the card for the challenge.

The Falling Flowers stamp set and the May Flowers Framelits have been around for a while in the Annual catalog.  Today I have used Watercolor Paper for the flowers.  

First, start with a card base of Petal Pink.  It's cut to 4 1/4 x 11.  The next layer is Fresh Fig measuring 3 3/4 x 5.  Finally a layer of Petal Pink stripe is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  This paper is from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper also in the Annual catalog.

The large words are from the stamp set Life is Grand from page 17 of the Occasions catalog.  Line these words up on the Stamparatus.  You know you are going to need to stamp them more than one time.  Stamp in Fresh Fig onto Whisper White cardstock.  Cut this out using the Layering Ovals Framelits.  I used the largest one.  Add the oval to the center of the card with dimensionals.

Stamp the images from Falling Flowers on Watercolor Paper.  Use Stazon Black for this.  I used two of the leaf stems, three of the little ball images, two of the middle size flowers, and one of the large flowers.  Use the colors Fresh Fig, Mossy Meadow, and Petal Pink to color in the flowers.  You'll need to use an Aqua Painter.  I stamped a clear block on each color and painted from the block.  Use the May Flowers Framelits to cut these out.  Place them around the oval as you please.  Use glue dots where the flowers overlap the oval and dimensionals where they do not overlap.
