Good Tuesday afternoon.  Today I have a clean and simple, fast and easy project to share with you that I made for the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge.  I used the newly released Essentials by Ellen  Rustic Botanicals Stamp Set , Rustic Botanicals Die SetModern Graphics Paper Pack and Julie’s wonderful sentiment stamp set Lovely.

I secured the stamp and cardstock in my MISTI and inked and stamped the images and sentiment using black versafine.  I I embossed all the images and sentiment using clear super fine embossing powder. I lined the dies up on the foliage. flower and flower center, secured them in place with pieces of Eclipse and ran them through my Big Shot.  I gently formed the flower petals and foliage leaves using my stylus and molding pad.

I wanted to use one of Julie’s new Modern Graphic papers as a background for my colorful flower and foliage.  I especially love the random black spot pattern on the one I used and think it adds interest to the card.  The sentiments in the Lovely set are wonderful and it’s a great set to have on hand .
