Stampin' Up! Awash With Flowers & A Good Egg
This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge is a color challenge. It incorporates Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, and Daffodil Delight. I actually started out with a piece of Whisper White card stock and created a bouquet with the Awash With Flowers. Although I loved the colors and composition, I was having difficulty incorporating Crumb Cake into the card. So I guess I went to the other extreme! I love the tone on tone that our classic ink gives, so while I used Basic Black for all the outlines and sentiment, it was Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight on Daffodil Delight, and Pear Pizzazz on Pear Pizzazz. A little black polka dot ribbon and we're good to go!

Putting It Together Tips:
- If you'd like a great pairing suggestion for a good purchase in tools, my money is on the Word Window punch and the Modern Label punch. These two punches work so well together and if you add in Teeny Tiny Wishes (which I usually use, but decided I wanted a sentiment a bit more playful) you have the makings of a greeting for every occasion you can think of!
- The tone on tone technique is an extremely simple but very dramatic way to get great interest, add to the composition, and not over power the design. In fact you could use VersaMark Ink and then you'd have a match to every color of card stock you own as VersaMark is a watermark type ink.
- Awash With Flowers allows for some really loose and free stamping. If you can get past not staying in the lines, it's a bunch of creative fun. I struggled with that part at first, but then realized it's not suppose to match perfectly - room for error! Amazing! I used a masking technique to get the round focal point flower. Just a handy tip, if you go to the trouble of making a mask, stick it in the inside of your stamp case for the next time you want to mask that image!
