I love to challenge my team by giving them colors and letting them go to work. It’s a wonderful way to grow in color and design. By participating, it forces you to work with colors you might not put together. It can be hard at times but, oh so rewarding when it all comes together.
The colors for the April color challenge are Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black. Keeping in mind, the designers can stamp images in basic black and use either whisper white or vanilla cardstock.
I selected the Stampin Up Watercolor Words for my challenge card. I love this stamp set and have enjoyed using it. It’s fun and whimsical. It lends itself to fun backgrounds and is easy to work with.
I had fun creating the background on the pear pizzazz cardstock. I wanted to give the cardstock some depth and dimension. Therefore, I used a stampin up block and pear pizzazz ink to randomly stamp my squares. No two cards are alike with this method. Lol!!
I hope you enjoy my project today!! Thank you for stopping by. Blessings, Brandy
