PPA 203 - A Color Challenge

I love the colors for this weeks Pals Paper Art challenge!  We're using Cajun Craze, Night of Navy and Very Vanilla. I think it's such a gorgeous combination!

  • The flower was so easy to create with the  Mixed Bunch Stamp Set. I stamped the flower image in Night of Navy Ink 3 times onto Cajun Craze card Stock and punched out the flowers using the coordinating Blossom Punch. 
  • To give the flower dimension, I curled the petals around the handle of a small paint brush and sponged the edges in Night Of Navy Ink. Assembled with Stampin' Dimensionals.

  • My project contains lots of stamping, sponging, lots of layers and a couple retiring products.
  • I'm sad to say this is the first time I've used the Blue 3/8" Denim Jean Ribbon 125053 and now it's leaving. It gorgeous and I'm not sure why I haven't used it before now.
