Awesomely Artistic

I finally got to stamp something today for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge.

Here is the color challenge:
Pals Paper Arts PPA301

Here is my card:

The stamp set is Awesomely Artistic and the sentiment is from the set Butterfly Basics.

Sometimes the design is an after-thought (or two)

I originally intended to center the white card stock (3" X 3") on the Pool Party card stock, but changed my mind and cut a piece of Crushed Curry 1/8' wider than the white, to border the white.

I still intended to center the image, but when I put the pieces on the card to view, the white card stock slipped a little and moved to the right.  I decided I liked that look, so I let it stay there.  

Also, the water drops were originally on the Pool Party only, then I added them to the white, stamping off 2 times.

Then I decided, what the heck, let's go for water drops on the Crushed Curry too!

Just let the design take you where it wants to go.


  1. Hi Ms. did an awesome layering job for the colors and paint splatters give great texture! Thanks for playing along this week!

  2. Diane... sure doesn't look like an after thought to me. Beautiful! Thank you for playing with the color team this week for PPA301!

  3. Love the way you've used layers in different ways here. Layering the papers and layering the stamps really add a lot depth to your gorgeous card. Thanks for playing with us at Pals Paper Arts.

  4. Beautiful card, Diane! I adore this layout - great way to showcase these colors. Thanks for playing along with this week's Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge!
