Stamp a Faire 2015 – Mix & Match Challenge



Your challenge is to create a card or project that mixes at least three different patterned papers, keeping in mind the concepts that Betsy discussed in the video.  Have fun and step out of your box!

I used the paper from the kit and went for the soft pinks, oranges and yellows.  I really liked the flowers and decided that I wanted more flowers to add to the card.

The flowers do get a little lost on the card so I used Wink of Stella clear glitter on the flowers to help them pop (ok it pop a tiny bit)

Here is a close up of the flowers.  Still don’t think you can see the glitter.   Hmmmm  But you can see the gold color shine sprinkles on the card.

Create a project using a new-to-you color combination.  Your challenge is to come up with a unique color combination incorporating either a color you already love and use all the time, or one you rarely use, and create a project using those colors!

Well I noticed I never use Lemon Tart, I never opened the ink pad, never used the paper.  So I decided to try to incorporate it into the colors I use.   I generally like bright vibrant colors and using softer pastel colors are a stretch for me.  I also got the opportunity to use my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush set.

Lemon Tart Card

I decided to experiment with the ZIG Clean Color on vellum and I like the result.  I actually used them on the top of the vellum and they went on real nice and colored up quickly.  to show off the sheer vellum, I cut between the flowers and curled the leaves up.  Then I tucked the flowers underneath another flower to help them stay popped up.  If you look at the photo in the upper left corner, you can see the pink sheerness of the colored vellum over the other flower.  I did stick the vellum flowers over solid colored shapes cut from the same dies.
