Today I have three cards to share with you. Recently one of my lovely crafty friends, Aileen Ryan from Colour and Sparkle has started a brand new challenge, The Flower Challenge, which is dedicated to all things floral. And yes, I didn't want to miss this :)! And now I should choose one for the challenge, as I ended up with three floral cards :)!
I used Coordinating Outlines stamp of the Fresh Cut Garden Roses stamp set from The Ton to make the rose bouquet for my cards.
For my first card I used a well-known color combo: pink and gray. I wanted to achieve a no-line colored look. So I stamped the roses in Rose Quartz dye ink, a very soft pink and the leaves using Hampton White Pigment ink (some leaves show light green shade from the ink I previously used on the stamps) on a gray cardstock. I then started coloring using Polychromos pencils. I let the leaves uncolored. Instead of that I colored the outer area in gray.
The sentiment is from the same set. I stamped it in Hollywood Star and Plum Wine for an ombre look and heat embossed the uppper part using silver glitter EP. I then added a thin strip of silver adhesive glitter paper. The sequins are from I deream in Peach, Purple Ballgown Couture Mix and Glass Slippers sequins.
Here I stamped the leaves in solid form from the Fresh Cut Garden Roses (layering) stamp set in Hampton White Pigment ink and added a little bit of green on them. I used soft pink cardstock and colored the flowers also in pink. I then added some Hampton White Pigment ink on the upper left area to tone down the pink.
For my last card I colored the rose bouquet in yellow-orange. I decided to use one of the beautiful watercolor background panel by EunJi Jung as the backdrop for the rose bouquet. So I fussy cut the flowers and added it on the panel flat in upper part and using foam tape in bottom part.
The sentiment is from the Timeless Icons Sentiment stamp from The Ton. I stamped it in Noir dye ink.
I let this card without any embellishment.
I will enter the first card into The Flower Challenge #1: Anything Goes and the second card into Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes.
Thank you all for stopping by!!!
Have a beautiful weekend!!!
