Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 559 Abstract Impressions

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we are using the colors Lemon Lime Twist, Real Red and Smoky Slate.


I used the stamp set Abstract Impressions along with the Neutrals and Brights Designer Series Paper.

CCMC #559 Abstract Impressions by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Smoky Slate cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Real Red layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  The Smoky Slate dotted paper is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  The thin strips of Real Red dotted paper are actually 1/4" wide and 3 5/8" long.  I use the Grid Paper to help me glue them down straight.

The Whisper White layer is 2 1/4 x 4 1/4.  Use the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  There are two grasses.  Use the larger one first.  Stamp off the Lemon Lime Twist ink with this one.  Stamp across the paper.  The smaller grass stamp is stamped without stamping off across the bottom.

The flowers are stamped in Real Red.  The larger flower stamp is stamped off.  The accents for the flowers are stamped with no stamping off.  You'll notice that some of my flowers don't have a stem.  Who cares!  It's abstract!  Add this panel with dimensionals.

The saying is stamped in Real Red on a 3/4" strip.  Trim each end.  For this, I have snail along the top and dimensionals along the bottom so that it will lie flat.

This is the inside of my card.  The grasses are the opposite of the front of the card.  Why, you might ask.  Well, that's because I forgot to stamp off.  I just went with it!  This saying is also from Abstract Impressions.
