I chose grays for my neutral palette. The stencil flower background is one of ColorBox Art Screens, bloom. The flower stamps are from Wplus9, Fresh Cut Florals, with the Fresh Cut Floral dies. I sponged Tim Holtz hickory smoke and black ink through the stencil, increasing intensity as I went along. The words are from an old Impression Obsession word set I have. The flowers are cut out and layered and dimensional with foam tape.
Looking at this card on the post, I feel like the color knob is all the way off on my computer! I know I will be doing this card again, only with color next time.
It was fun for a change. That's what's great about challenges...it stretches you to do what you are not comfortable with. Hope you will join some challenges this year!
