The principle behind this challenge was to use three colors in measured amounts for balance. I used Spring Moss for my gallon, Pure Poppy for my quart, and Ripe Avocado for my pint. Since I was pressed for time and needed inspiration, I case'd Ashley Cannon Newell, one of the design team members. (her card is here) I also got the inspiration for my flowers from another challenge participant, Luanne Ford. (you can see her card here)
White is considered a neutral for this technique, so I used it for my card base and sentiment panel. On the Spring Moss cardstock, I stamped Background Basics: Text Style using VersaMark ink. I really like the subtle look.
I stamped my flower and leaves using black ink, and then fussy cut
around them before putting them on the card. I love detail work like
that. (but I still want the matching dies!) I was in quite a hurry when I glued everything down and realized too
late that my sentiment was higher than I wanted. I would fix that if I were
to recreate this card. Oh well!
