Layered Bloom


Hello to a new week! I'm playing along with another new (to me) challenge today. I've always been a fan of colour challenges and when I saw the graphic for Colour Me…! on a few blogs I decided to check it out.  The soft colour palette made me think of flowers so I pulled out these Paper Smooches flower and leaf dies.  I love the vellum leaves Deepti used here and wanted to try something similar.  The sentiment is by Hero Arts and that and the dies are all NBUS!  I'm also going to enter this card in the PS Sparks Anything Goes challenge.  Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Smokey Slate) Stampin' Up
Vellum:  (Yellow) Strathmore
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Hip Hip Hooray) Hero Arts
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Big Bloom, Loopy Leaf) Paper Smooches
Punches:  (1/16", 1/8", 1/4" hole punches) McGill, (Corner rounder) Marvy Uchida
Marker:  (Pink Pirouette) Stampin' Up
Other:  (Glossy Accents) Ranger

This is beautiful, Jen. It would never cross my mind to use grey in a flower, but here it is gorgeous! I think it will now cross my mind. ;)
