I'm popping in today to remind you all about our current theme at The Flower Challenge. Its all about 'Spring/Autumn' designs. Its Autumn here in New Zealand and the leaves are starting to change and fall which is pretty but messy!!
Our Sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Digi Stamps and they are giving a $12 gift voucher to the winner, which is around 4 stamp images. And they have so many to choose from!
For my card I wanted to use the same Bugaboo digi image that they gifted to our Design Team. I definitely needed to colour it differently and decided to move it around a bit too:
This is the image I used from Bugaboo Digi Stamps, its the '4 Block Tulip Square':
For the colouring I decided to use my Altenew Artist Markers but use the same colours within each square, giving a monochromatic look for each image. Once I had finished I cut each square apart. Next came the tricky part....
I wanted each square to have a frame, so I cut a panel of black CS the same size as the card front and was lucky enough to find a square die (from Uniquely Creative 'Square Stitched Nesting Dies') that fit perfectly around each image. I die-cut it 4x from the panel. To work out where to adhere each image, I had to hold the black panel over-top and move the image around, which took a very long time. Once they were in place I went around each image with a black marker pen as some of them didn't line up correctly. I then glued the black panel over-top.
For the sentiment I die-cut the 'love' from the Uniquely Creative 'Love and Hugs' die set 3x from white CS and once from some Creativ Gold Metallic Paper. I glued them all together and then to the card front. I also gold heat embossed the sentiment (from Uniquely Creative 'Sweet Sentiment Builder') and put on foam tape, along with some Neat and Tangled sequins. I also added some white gel pen highlights to the images.
