Color Throwdown. To stamp the two-color background, I laid the background stamp on my craft table rubber side up. The top third of the image was inked with Perfect Plum ink by tapping repeatedly on the stamp. The bottom two thirds were inked in the same manner with Pear Pizzazz. I didn't worry too much about the inks blending, just made sure that there wasn't any open space on the stamp with no ink.
I thought the leaves and stems needed a little more dimension but in keeping with the CAS look, I didn't want more layers or fussy-cutting. I colored in the stem and one side of the leaves with my Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write marker. It provided just the right amount of shading and variation from the background. A single navy flower was stamped off the inside corner and that completed my CAS Flower card!I hope you enjoyed today's card. I know you will enjoy all the eye candy that the rest of the design team has for you at The Paper Players, so check 'em out! Maybe you will be inspired to play along with us before the challenge ends on Friday, January 27th at Noon (CST). Thanks for stopping by, friends!
