Layers of Color {Masterpiece Monday}

Happy Monday morning to each of you! For the next three weeks, I will be sharing some of my Layers of Color creations with you using the new releases. Today I want to share my creations using these three new sets: Flowering Gems (11 stamps in set), Flutterescent (7 stamps in set), and Granny’s Jewelry (11 stamps in set).

For my Flowering Gems creation, I used my watercolor pencils to color the flowers. The center section of the flower is separate, and I used pop dots to give it dimension. Papers: Basic Grey Wisteria, Paper Trey Ink, Strathmore watercolor paper, sheet music from 1940 hymnal, Memory Box wisteria notecard
Stamps: Layers of Color Flowering Gems
Stamp Ink: Memento rich cocoa and sweet plum, SU creamy caramel
Die Cuts: Quickutz scallop circle, Shapeabilities decorative photo corner
Embellishments: KaiserCraft chino pearls, Smooch grape soda, Derwent watercolor pencils

And here is my Flutterescent creation. Several weeks ago while I was sitting in church, I noticed one of our banners had a butterfly on it that looked like stained glass. So, I used that banner as inspiration to create this card. Papers: Paper Trey Ink, Strathmore watercolor paper, Stampin' Up (black CS)
Stamps: Layers of Color Flutterescent
Stamp Ink: Palette black
Embellishments: Smooch pool, green apple, taffy, pumpkin, snicker doodle; Derwent watercolor pencils; Stickles black diamond, Glitz black frosting, Cuttlebug stylized flowers embossing folder

And for my Granny's Jewelry card, I embossed the piece of "jewelry" in silver embossing powder. I then used Stickles and Liquid Pearls to fill it in and give it sparkle! Papers: Paper Trey Ink, SU black cardstock, Webster's Pages, sheet music from 1940 hymnal
Stamps: Layers of Color Granny's Jewelry
Stamp Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versa Mark, misc. silver embossing powder
Embellishments: Martha Stewart lattice border punch, Cosmo Cricket rub-ons, Doodlebug rub-on '&', Liquid Pearls petal pink, Stickles silver, Robin's Nest silver dew drops, Bazzill black tulle, Prima crystals

I hope you have enjoyed today's inspiration. To see more creations from the rest of the Layers of Color design team, see this post here on the Layers of Color blog! Have a blessed Monday, and thanks for stopping by!

Patter -- I so love the idea of using an old hymnal for inspiration! I'm praying for you, your husband and your girls as you are dealing with your husband's illness and being strong for your sweet girls.
