Hello and thanks for visiting!
Today's card is inspired by Connie Collins' card over @ Global Design Project for the CASE the Designer Challenge #gdp376. I love Connie's monochromatic palette, the texture of the embossing folder and burst of flowers as the focal point in the centre of the card! Click the hyperlink to visit the #gdp376 blog challenge and enjoy the inspiration.
CASE means Copy And Selectively Edit, so I've CASEd Connie's card by choosing a monochromatic green colour palette, creating a focal image with the Sweet Citrus Stamp Set, #160641 & adding texture with the Sweet Citrus Embossing Folder & Dies, #160644. The Sweet Citrus Bundle , #160645 is in the new January to April 2023 Mini Catalogue.
*** The Trix ***
* Use the Stamparatus, #146276 and Sponge Daubers, #133773 to add various shade of colour to the limes. Simply ink up the limes with Parakeet Party, stamp, then reink with Granny Apply Green to create a blending of colour. *Trix* repeat this inking process a few times to get a good saturation of colour on the Soft Sea Foam cardstock.
* Repeat the use of colour - the card base, embossed layer, sentiment and image stamp of the outline of the limes are all Garden Green. I love Stampin' Up!® colour coordination!
* Embellish with a hint of similar colour - I think Daffodil Delight is adjacent to Parakeet Party on the colour wheel and the stamped flowers looked like embellishments to me for this card. I added a few gems and Parakeet Party Matte Decorative Dots, #159186 as well.
