SIP Challenge #7 - Color Challenge, You've Got This

Hi all, Hope you've been having a good week so far!  It's another Tuesday and that means a brand new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!  This week we've got a fun color challenge for you!

I love these colors but I had one problem.... I didn't have Pacific Point ink or cardstock!  What was I to do???  My friend Andrea reminded me that I had some of the Brights Collection Background DSP and man was I relieved!  I still wasn't sure how to use the Pacific Point DSP though without something else that coordinated with it.  Well here's what I came up with and I really did love how it turned out!

I decided to use the You've Got This Stamp Set and do some paper-piecing.  I started with an 11" x 4 1/4" card base scored at 5 1/2".  I layered on a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of the Pacific Point DSP from the Brights Background DSP stack.  I then cut a piece of 3 3/4" x 5" Sahara Sand cardstock that had been stamped tone-on-tone with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped one flower on the left side of the hardwood background and used a Mossy Meadow Stampin' Marker to color in the stem and leaf.  I then stamped the flower with Memento Tuxedo Black ink several times onto the Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point DSP and fussy cut out the bloom only.  I layered one over the flower that I stamped onto the Hardwood and then began to layer other flowers around the sides and bottom of the hardwood.  I used a White wink of stella glitter pen in the center and then used a Black Medium Tip Faber Castell artist pen to outline the stamped portion so that it would stamp out a little more.  I then used embossed the I'm here for you sentiment in black in the upper right and then as usual I felt it needed something else so I threaded some linen thread into a Pacific Point button from the Brights Buttons and glued it onto a gathered piece of Sahara Sand Lace Trim.
