Fabulous Florets FM80 and CCMC222

Today I woke up early so that I wouldn't miss the deadline on the one challenge. I had already started the card and so I didn't want my efforts to go to waste.

This was a combination of 2 challenges. First we have the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge CCMC222. It required that I use Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green and Chocolate Chip. Done.

Next we have the Friday Mashup Challenge 80So here was the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with the "Sketch".
  2. Or Make a project using "Faux Washi Tape".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project using the "Sketch and Faux Washi Tape".
I did both. Be sure to visit the link to see how the Faux Washi Tape was made. It took 2 tries and some patience. The first try was last night and I used thin tape and too much water with too much rubbing. This morning I used packing tape with less water and was a lot gentler on the rubbing. I used my finger instead of a sponge to get the last of the white to go away. It's messy with wet paper clumps but it is worth a try.

Stamp Sets: Fabulous Florets, Friendly Phrases
Colors: See above
Supplies: Packing Tape, Sponge, Finishing Touches Edgelits

  2. Gumball Green. Not a green I would normally make a point of using but really, I'm seeing that it plays so well with others. I remember that we used it in your Halloween Card Camp last week too. Who knew? Well I guess those fabulous SU! folks. :-)

    Great card and great that you made it work for two challenges!
