Grapefruit Grove Colour Challenge 3

Grapefruit Grove Colour Challenge Card using the Stampin' Up! Medium Daisy Punch and simple watercoloring

Hello and welcome to Week 3 of my Grapefruit Grove Colour Challenge! Don’t forget that as one of the 2018-2020 InColours, Grapefruit Grove will soon be gone forever! So, if you have the ink pad, make sure you have purchased the re-inker and stock up on cardstock and other items while they last.

For Week 3, the colour combination is Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight and Mossy Meadow. This seemed like such a gorgeous spring time combination that I decided to use the Medium Daisy Punch with a lovely, fresh watercolour background.

If you missed Week 1 or 2 you can find them here… Week 1, Week 2

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a 14.4 x 10 cm layer of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper to form the main card front.

I have created a watercolour wash on the card front using Daffodil Delight and Mossy Meadow inks and my Aquapainters.

The three Daisies are created by cutting out 12 pieces of Whisper White cardstock using the Medium Daisy Punch (4 pieces per daisy). The four pieces are all offset slightly from one another and adhered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The flower centres are created by cutting out pieces of Grapefruit Grove cardstock using the 0.5″ Circle Punch (also retiring soon!). Two of the daisies are adhered directly to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A length of Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon is attached to the card front (between the daisies) using a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set and is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. A smaller one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies is used to cut out a piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock and these die cuts are layered together. The sentiment piece is adhered with both Stampin’ Dimensionals (to the card front) and Multipurpose Liquid Glue (to the daisies).

The final daisy is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals such that it slightly overlaps the sentiment piece.
