2020 Stash Party #38 -Hand Stamped Sentiment Color Challenge #345

Hi, Crafty Makers!
I very rarely enter card challenges but since I am trying all things new this year, I thought it would be a good thing to attempt to enter a minimum of three challenges for my new projects. 

If you follow me, you know by now that I am addicted to using my stencils and other media to create my own backgrounds.  I created this "Tropical Palm" background using my TP Stencil and WOW's White Pearl Embossing Powder.  The sentiment is also embossed with clear EP.
Bloom Where You are Planted
Another Stenciled Background!

I tried to get my colors as close as possible to the challenge colors! The colors of Coastal Cabana and Bumble Bee were easy, however, I did not have magenta-colored paper so I used Ranger's Picked Raspberry Ink on my focal as a nod to magenta.  I used Star Dust Stickles to add a bit of sparkle to my flowers!
I used Ranger Distress Inks to capture the colors of the challenge.  I created the background for my sentiment stamp by blending  Speckled Egg, Iced Spruce, Cracked Pistachio, and Picked Raspberry!   

This video shows how to create the Stenciled Background
This self-imposed Stash Bash Party Challenge has been a very good thing for my creative soul.  I own a few extraordinarily beautiful Doily Dies and I never use them.  I have tons and tons of flowers but they are not on the list of the first things that I reach for or even think of when crafting.  Somehow, this version of my "Tropical Palm" stenciled background panel seemed to just cry out for flowers and a little lace!
Thanks For Stopping By
