Hi there and welcome to The Flower Challenge for the month of March!! We have everyone's favourite theme this month:
This means the possibilities are endless with your creation. As long as you have something 'floral' as your main subject, you can make whatever you like!!
I was in a water colouring mood when I needed to make my card and I also wanted to use a background stamp that hadn't seen any ink yet. What a perfect pairing they were:
I used my MISTI to stamp the background stamp twice with Versafine black ink on water colour CS, and then heat emboss with clear embossing powder. I then grabbed a Kuretake Real Color Zig Brush marker in 'Light Violet', another small brush (with a bowl of water) and put the programme 'Suits' on the tv so I could settle in and colour away!!
Once I had finished and dried with my heat gun, I used a waffle-edged die to cut out the panel. I cut a panel of black CS, adhered it to the card front and then popped the panel up on foam tape. The 'love' die was die-cut 3x from black CS, glued together for dimension and then to the card. I also heat embossed the rest of the sentiment in white and glued this, along with some co-ordinating sequins to the card front.
The background stamp is from My Favourite Things 'Floral Fantasy'. The 'love' die is from Paper Smooches, the 'sending' sentiment is from Waffle Flower 'Balloon Messages' and the sequins from Neat and Tangled. The panel die is from Winnie and Walter 'Essentials: Audrey's Cutaways'.
