Bright Flowers

#stampinup   #saleabration2016   When I saw the color combination at this week's Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog, I almost passed. I didn't think I could make anything pretty with these colors. I could handle any two of the colors together at a time, but throw in that third one, and I just didn't "get" it. But I decided to play along and see if I could work outside my comfort zone. 


I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped two flowers from the "Flowering Fields" Sale-a-Bration stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink. I stamped a sentiment from the "Rose Wonder" stamp set, also in Basic Black Archival Ink.  

I colored the flowers in Wisteria Wonder with my Blender Pens. I added a bit of Pear Pizzazz for the stems and leaves. I adhered this panel to a Melon Mambo mat and added a strip of Bermuda Bay Designer Series Paper from the Brights Collection. I tied two lengths of Whisper White Baker's Twine around the piece before adhering everything to a Wisteria Wonder card base.

Once everything was together, I decided to add a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer. I like the results of this color combination!
