Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #585 Sweet Silhouettes

HAPPY HALLOWEEN and welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #585.  Today our color challenge uses Terracotta Tile, Pumpkin Pie, and Basic Black.


I decided these colors made me think of a sunset.  I used the Sweet Silhouettes dies as my focal point on the card.

The card base is Basic Black measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Terracotta Tile.  It is cut to 3 3/4 x 5.  The next layer is Whisper White.  It measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.

The Basic Black layer, cut at 3 3/8 x 4 5/8. 

The final layer is of Watercolor Paper.  It is just a little smaller than the black layer with 3 1/4 x 4 5/8 as its measurements.  Wet this paper well with your Aqua Painter.  Alternately add Terracotta Tile color and Pumpkin Pie color.  I got ink in the lid of the ink pads for this.  Just squeeze the top and bottom together.  Let this dry.  Scrap around the edges of this layer with the blade of your scissor.

Cut three dandelions from Basic Black cardstock using the Sweet Silhouettes dies.  Add to the front of the card carefully adding glue.  Stamp the word hello from To a Wild Rose in black.  After stamping, I wished I had used the Stamparatus so I could get a good dark word.  I did go back with my Basic Black Stampin Write Marker over my word.

Tie some of the Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the card and tie in a knot.  Add to the black layer.

Add the black layer to the card with dimensionals.

Add another dandelion to the inside of the card.  The saying again is from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.
