Be Still for Sunday Stamps! #149

Hello, crafty friends. Today's card was created for the new color challenge at Sunday Stamps!  It was so fun to finally use this cool sentiment from the Sending Thoughts stamp set set.

To create the subtle background, I color washed Mint Macaron and Wisteria Wonder ink onto a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock using a large paint brush and dried it with my heat tool.  

The colors I used for this weeks challenge are: Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder, Mint Macaron and Garden Green.  Here's this weeks challenge:

I tried to keep my card simple and let the Oh So Succulent flowers do all the talking. :)

Be Still card supplies:
  • stamps: Oh So Succulent Bundle (145184), Sending Thoughts (142965), Dragonfly Dreams Bundle (144728)
  • ink: Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder, Mint Macaron, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight.
  • card stock: Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder and Daffodil Delight.
  • accessories: Elegant Eggplant Baker's Twine, White Accents, Mint Macaron Enamel Dots, and a paint brush.

Purple is one of my favorite colors (in case you didn't know by now). After my mother passed away (14 years ago), I made a card for a challenge at Stampin' UP! back in the day for her in honor of Mother's Day.  Low and behold, Stampin' UP! called to tell me that I won the challenge! It really ment a lot to me since I was still grieving.  So ever since then,  I have loved the color purple as it makes me think of my mom and the card I made her. :)

Okay----we must move on----
now that you have seen my creation, I would love for you to head over to the Sunday Stamps! challenge blog and play along with us!  You have until Friday, April 7, 2017, to join Sunday Stamps! challenge #149.  Hope to see you there!
