It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary challenge. This week it is a color challenge and it was another tough one for me.
One of the things I do when I am having a tough time figuring out a color combination is pull out embellishments, DSP, specialty papers etc in the colors. This helped me find the Soft Succulent in the Fine Shimmer Paper Pack and the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon. I also discovered that all the colors have coordinating Stampin' Blends.
I chose one of my favorites from the 2022-23 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, the Cottage Rose bundle. I am sad to see that it will be retiring. Anyway, I used Stampin' Blends to color the flower and heavily brushed on the Wink of Stella to make the flower sparkle. I used the Stitched Greenery die (also retiring) on the Soft Succulent Fine Shimmer Paper. If you like a shimmery paper be sure to check out the Fine Shimmer Paper, it is beautiful and comes in a pack with Soft Succulent, Fresh Freesia, and gold.
Inside I added a strip of the Soft Succulent Shimmer paper and colored another flower using the Stampin' Blends.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for the challenge,
