Adding Color to Ephemera (New Craft Stash #15)

Hello! Welcome to a New Craft Stash post. Today, I am featuring the Pinkfresh Studio Let's Stay Home Ephemera Pack. I also created this card to join in Pinkfresh Studio's latest blog challenge. 

I created a background using strips of cardstock. I trimmed different colored cardstocks with the color palette of the challenge in mind. I trimmed the cardstocks in different widths. 

I cut a typing paper at 3 3/4" x 8 3/4" and applied glue all over it. I adhered the strips of cardstock next to each other, repeating the pattern of colors until the whole typing paper is completely covered. I set this aside to dry with something heavy laying on top of it.

Once the panel is dry, I die cut it using the Pinkfresh Studio Slim Stitched Scallop Die. 

I created a frame for the scallops by partially die cutting a gold cardstock with the scallop frame window on the slim die. I die cut this again using a circle die that is slightly larger than the stitching created by the slim die. I adhered this to the scallop windows carefully lining up the scallops and the mini dot openings created by the die.

After choosing the ephemera pieces for this card, I added color to the outline images with Prismacolor color pencils. 

To assemble the card, I adhered the ephemera piece with the sentiment to the back of the center scallop window. I adhered this panel to a side folding white notecard. I adhered the floral ephemera pieces with foam adhesive. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
