I was excited to see a color challenge this week at Global Design Project. However, when I started to work on the card, I couldn’t get anything to work the way I wanted it to! I realized the stamps I was trying to use just didn’t lend themselves to a color challenge. Inspiration hit and I grabbed the Hanging Garden stamp set. Sometimes when a new catalog comes out, I forget about some of the other wonderful stamp sets I have. Here’s what I came up with.

Design Notes for Hanging Garden Card:

I love these three colors! They are all now in the Regals Collection. But they are all very intense, saturated colors, so I had to be careful not to use too much solid color. I ended up using Stampin’ Write Markers in the three colors for the flowers in the basket. Note my addition of greens for the leaves and just the tiniest bit of yellow for the center of daffodils. I think I can be forgiven for that! But, it turns out the background piece is really my favorite. I used the Sponge Brayers to create just a light touch of each of the three colors. The Real Red bow at the top of the hanger and the mat of Rich Razzleberry seemed to pull it all together.
