Wisteria Bloom - Fancy Friday

Hello! Can you believe that it is almost March? Crazy, I know! The best part about the end of the month is that there is a new Fancy Friday Blog Hop. This month we challenged ourselves by using the least used Stampin' Up! colors, like Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, or Tempting Turquoise. My favorite least used color is Rose Red. Once you decide to use it, it is easy to use. However, I decided to really challenge myself and use a color I never use - Wisteria Wonder. 

It really was a challenge to use Wisteria Wonder, so much so that I ended up going with a monochromatic color scheme. I stamped the pretty bloom from the Birthday Blooms Set in Wisteria Wonder and then watercolored it with the same color. This created a really pretty tone on tone look. The silver embossed sentiment adds a little bit of something extra to the card. My favorite part of this project is the embossed diagonal lines. I was able to create this by simply using the scoring blade on my Paper Trimmer.

Stampin' Supplies:

  • Birthday Blooms Set
  • Wisteria Wonder Ink Pad
  • VersaMark
  • Wisteria Wonder, Shimmery White, and Vellum Card Stock

Now, head on over Jeanna's blog to see how she used unloved colors.
