Paper Players #286 & Can You Case It #111 - You Are Remarkable

Monday, March 14, 2016


After a long and busy weekend not in my craftroom, I'm back in there creating. I'm entering two challenges today combining the colour challenge at The Paper Players and Can You Case It! There are still three days left to enter should you like to try, or go on over and check out the design team inspiration and the participant entries! Always great inspiration coming form checking our challenge blogs.

For my entry, I'm using the "Remarkable You" stamp set. The Bermuda Bay is being used for the leaves, and "Calypso
Coral" for the flowers. With black being the main colour, it makes the other really pop.

I used the Aqua Painters on both the leaves and flowers after stamping them with Archival Basic Black. Then to add a little more deeper colour for shadow I used my Stampin' Write Calypso Coral Marker.
Of course I had to fussy cut the leaves and flowers, that's just me. You can see the details on the close up below.


Even though the flower stem is stamped on Calypso Coral, I still used Bermuda Bay with my Aqua Painter on for the stems. I was glad to see that it worked out well. I was thinking it might look muddy...

In the next photo you can see from the side a bit of the layering.


Thank you for sharing in the fun with me, of entering a couple of challenges! Hope you get some great inspiration and enter too.

Happy stamping & creating!

What a stunning card, again, Sabrina. Did you stamp onto watercolour paper, plain white cs or shimmer? This is so beautiful. I love this particular colour challenge.

Sabrina said...

TY Carolyn Dieleman, I stamped onto Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay cardstock, and used a light touch with my Aqua Painter and touched up with the Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Marker.

Sabrina said...

TY Kylie! A great compliment coming from you. Had fun getting out of my comfort zone with this one.
