Poppy Seed Challenge # 1
Today, I came across this CHALLENGE at Lisa's Poppy Paperie blog. I love her work and so I decided I would participate in this challenge.
Now, I have to tell the truth, this card turned out way different than I imagined. I think I like it though. The process was interesting and fun. Though I had originally planned on using ribbon roses as my light yellow accent they just didn't go with the flowers I stamped (in my mind, at least).
I really do like the color combination I chose though. I used Papertrey Ink's Terra Cotta Tile & Lemon Tart cardstock, using the Vintage Tea Dye Duo for distressing the edges. And I stamped the flowers from PTI Friends Til the End set on Rustic Cream before distressing the edges and then adding score tape and glitter so I could give the card the BLING (crystals) needed as one of the SEEDS of the challenge.

The other seeds were: Use light yellow some where (that was my Lemon Tart card stock and the yellow COPICs I used when coloring the interior of my last seed, which was use a flower image.
I liked this challenge - would be pretty easy to combine this with some others if you "need" to complete more than one challenge.
I also have to admit that one thing I kind of like on the card was purely an accident. After stamping my sentiment on the card, I accidentally dropped my Dark Chocolate (PTI) inkpad onto the card stock. In order to cover my boo-boo, I lightly touched different areas of the card with the inkpad for the same look in multiple places.
