LPS Monday: Colorful Roses and a Challenge...


Happy Monday and Memorial Day, everyone!

It's time for another Preview from The Little Paper Shop before our release tomorrow...yay! The second set I have to show you today is called "Flower Frenzy" and I absolutely LOVE it! Watercolored roses are a REALLY hot technique right now, so this set can be used for that amongst other beautiful techniques!

It's perfect for spring, summer, weddings, sympathy..even Birthdays! It's all based on what you want to wish the recipient of your card...you can say whatever you want and the possibilities are MANY!

For today's LPS Monday Challenge, not only are we previewing the fabulous new set, Flower Frenzy, but we also challenge YOU to get colorful!

That's right! This week, we have a color challenge of Pretty in Pink, Pale Plum, and Perfect Plum for you to try. If you don't have these exact colors, something similar will do just fine! We just want to see what you create using this soft summer palette :)

I used the watercolored Roses technique on this card and don't think it turned out to bad for a first run :) I used some of my favorite Sultry DP to compliment the Pink and Purple color combo and the rest kind of came together on its own!

So, you wanna give it a go? I hope you do! Be sure to leave a comment linking your colorful creation to the LPS blog on today's post, and if you use SCS or PCP, please use keyword LPSC17 so we know where to find your entries!

ONE lucky winner will be chosen via Random.org and will WIN the new Flower Frenzy stamp set! Good luck and get colorful!

Last but not least, be sure to check out THIS post on the LPS blog regarding our participation in the Stamping Out Alzheimer's Challenges! We hope to see you on that Forum!

Hugs,
Jessica :)
