The Paper Funday Challenge - ATG with Opt. Friendship

Hello Friends and Happy Wednesday!  Today begins a new challenge month at The Paper Funday Challenge Blog with a theme of Always Anything Goes with the optional Twist of Friendship.  The generous sponsors this month are Star Stampz and Fred, She Said.  

For my team project this month, I had the pleasure of using the Growing Together digital stamp from Fred, She Said to create an A2 sized card in a landscape format.

I love the sketchy way the flowers are drawn and I wanted lots of bright color so I re-discovered my Staedtler Watercolor Pencils and decided to watercolor using them.  The image is printed on mixed media paper because it handles water very well yet it's not as thick as watercolor paper and perfect for cardmaking.

I almost added color to the background but decided to leave it bright white.  I'm glad I did, I like the CAS feel of the focal panel.  I matted with black card and adhered to a cardbase of 110 lb. Neenah Solar White Classic Crest card.  The sentiment is from Varada Sharma Designs and is part of the Sweetheart Digital Stamp Set.  Lastly, I've added Black Nuvo Drops to the flower centers, no bells and whistles this time. 

Please join us this month at The Paper Funday Challenge.  We love seeing all the lovely projects and are always inspired.  In turn, we hope to inspire you with our projects.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
