Color Me... Striking!!

Happy Wednesday everyone.... This is my second week at Colour Me and it's a Striking week!! We're using Hello Honey, Coastal Cabana and a neutral. 

I'm also using the current sketch from Create with Connie & Mary! 

I started with the Sketch below and then I went through my stash to see what I had in Hello Honey and Costal Cabana. I started with a White card base and then I added a piece of Moonlight Series DSP that I matted with a piece of Hello Honey card stock. Then I added a banner that I cut from some Coastal Cabana card stock. 

For my main image I stamped the jar from the retired set Perfectly Preserved onto some Whisper White card stock and then again on a piece of vellum using StazOn Black ink. I cut the white piece with an Oval framelit and then I die cut the jar from the vellum using the coordinating framelits. 

I added a small amount of Coastal Cabana ink to the back side of the vellum piece with a Blender Pen and the ink pad. I stamped the stems onto the white piece using some Hello Honey Ink and then I added the vellum over it with a small amount of glue around the outline. 

I added the White oval with some dimensionals over the banner and then I stamped the flowers in Coastal Cabana and cut them out and added some dimensional adhesive to the back. I added 2 Butterflies in Hello Honey & Coastal Cabana from the Beautiful Wings embosslit. I stamped the sentiment in Hello Honey and die cut it with the Bitty Banners Framelits. 

It needed just a pop of bling so I added some rhinestones and Coastal Cabana Sequins. It's super cute if you ask 

Head over to the Color Me challenge blog and see what the other Design Team created this week and Join us! The Challenge is open until Monday @ 12pm EST. The create with Connie & Mary Sketch challenge is open until Today (Wed. @ 12pm EST).
