PPA 215 - Color Challenge

 Hello Friends!

It's Thursday again and time for a color challenge at Pals Paper Arts. For this color challenge we have chosen Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black.

Rules for the Gallery:
  • We invite you to use ANY brand of products to create your card and papercraft projects. 
  • Digitally created projects (such as My Digital Studio) are also welcome.
  • Entry should be new and inspired, totally or partially, by this challenge
  • Please use keyword PPA215 when uploading to public galleries.
  • Incorrect links are not eligible for Pals Picks, and may be deleted.
  • Inlinkz will close at Noon (EST) Tuesday, August 19th, 2014.
  • We'll announce our Pals Paper Artist Picks on August 20th, 2014
For my project today, I used the new Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die 133728 from the Annual Catalog. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. I could sit for hours & hours making flowers. This die has so many wonderful flower and leaf shapes, so you'll be seeing me use it a lot!

How I made the flower:
  • I cut out two of each flower shape in Whisper White CS and then sponged them in Strawberry Slush Ink and used my bone folder to curl the edges. Then glued them together using multipurpose glue.
  • To make the stamen I cut out several in Basic Black, adhered them together, sprayed lightly with water and wrapped them over the tip of a stylus to make them stand up and glued to the center.
  • For the leaves I cut out three in Whisper White CS, scored in the center and sponged in Pear Pizzazz Ink.

  4. Yup, I knew I wanted that die and your GORGEOUS flower just confirmed it! Love this so very much. Thank you for sharing how you put it together. The whole card is so beautiful, I love the embossing, the pretty bow and that you made it a square rather than rectangle.

  5. Beth, you know I love your cards and this one is spectacular! The sponging of the color on the WW gives an amazing look, I'm definitely going to try that. I seriously look so forward to your PPA cards, girl!!
