You're Grrrreat...
Retro Rubber Challenge #45...

Lavender Birthday Wishes...

It’s Monday! Today’s card was made for the Fab Friday challenge. I thought they had a fun sketch so I decided to give it a try.

I wanted to use my lavender die so I watercolored some paper in purples and greens and then die cut the flowers. I adhered the die to another piece of watercolor paper that I colored in blue. If you followed my posts last week, I tied all of the cards to the Olympics. I would like to think I can do that this week – but I came up empty. Oh well! ff 1 (566x640)

I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and die cut with my washi die and then adhered to a piece of wisteria wonder. The wisteria paper was part of some scraps I had been saving that was cut on the diagonal. But I like the unusual shape that it gives to the sentiment – adds a bit of interest! ff 2 (640x609)

I adhered everything to a base of kraft and was done!

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to stop in tomorrow as a new Retro Rubber Challenge starts then!

Supplies: CS: Water color paper. PTI kraft and white. SU! wisteria wonder. Inks: Memento black. Distress inks. Dies: MFT washi tape. Memory Box long stem lavender. Stamps: PTI painted petals.

Beautiful watercolored background...I can never get mine to turn out so well! The lavender flowers really look nice against that blue! I also like how you used the card base as the edge element and the rest of the panel is the watercolor paper. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

That lavender is lovely! And I love the shadow effect that shape behind the sentiment gives - really makes it pop! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
