Hello Flower



Good morning!  I'm sharing a card for the current Paper Players challenge to create a clean and simple monochromatic card.  At first I played around with some watercolors but I still need a lot more practice before I feel comfortable with them.  At the moment my attempts are reminiscent of my kindergarten creations!  I finally decided to stick with coloured cardstock and make a simple, pink Paper Smooches flower.  I popped each layer up on foam tape and added Star Dust Stickles to the centre of the flower.  Clean, simple and just my style!  :D  





Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) Papertrey Ink, (Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo) Stampin' Up, Vellum
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Dauber Bunch) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Big Bloom) Paper Smooches
Glitter:  (Star Dust Stickles) Ranger

Oh Jen, you've planted a mega watt smile on my face in sharing your struggles with water-colouring! I'm sooooo glad I'm not alone! Kindergarten ventures pretty much captures my efforts - and one very happy, stuffed recycle bin! Your decision to go with the die cuts is brilliant, and what an eye-catching card you've made! Sweet and pretty!
